LASIK Surgery at Metrolina Eye Associates
Dr. Mac provides LASIK vision correction to patients who want to eliminate, or at the least greatly reduce, their dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Using the latest and fastest laser technology, the Allegretto Wave, Dr. Mac creates a tiny flap in the cornea (the thin, transparent film on the eye’s front surface) and then reshapes the cornea so that it reflects light properly onto the retina. This entire procedure takes less than 20 minutes, and is painless, as patients typically report feeling only a slight pressure. The corneal flap closes naturally, without stitches, and patients notice improved vision within 24 hours of surgery. And since there is hardly any downtime afterward, patients can resume their normal daily routine the day after surgery.
