LASIK and iLASIK
LASIK is a type of laser eye surgery that has added benefits, beyond improving your vision, of having little downtime as well as minimal discomfort after the procedure.
iLASIK, or Advanced LASIK, is an even more modern approach to LASIK employing the latest in laser technology for a very precise treatment.
The way LASIK is performed is by creating an access to the corneal tissue so that it may be reshaped and so vision problems can be corrected. This access is a miniature circular flap that is laid back into place after the cornea is reshaped, working thus as a protective bandage.
To correct problems related to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, your LASIK doctor may also suggest Advanced Surface Ablation, or Advanced PRK. It is a treatment that works in a very similar way to LASIK and iLASIK but it is done without creating a flap, instead, a soft contact lens is placed over the eye to protect it.
Alternatively, there is also the option for Implantable Contact Lens (Visian ICL), consult with your doctor to learn much more, as the recommended treatment will be based on your specific needs.
