LASIK Eye Surgery
Blurry vision makes it difficult to perform simple tasks. Although contacts or glasses help, they can be inconvenient and limiting.
LASIK eye surgery can enhance your vision so you can see clearly without prescription eyewear.

A Closer Look at LASIK Surgery
LASIK, formally known as laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is laser eye surgery performed to correct refractive errors that prevent your eyes from focusing correctly. Many people find they no longer need to wear glasses or contact lenses after surgery. This laser vision correction can fix:
- Nearsightedness (myopia)
- Farsightedness (hyperopia)
Laser vision correction surgery involves creating a flap in the outermost corneal tissue (epithelium) and then reshaping the tissue underneath (stroma) to enhance your ability to focus.

Is LASIK Safe?
Laser eye surgery is incredibly safe, and today’s advanced technology has made it safer and more precise than ever before. According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, the LASIK procedure carries a less than one percent chance of surgical complications.
Of course, technology is just one part of refractive eye surgery. To reduce the chance of complications you will also want to choose a highly trained specialist in eye surgery.
The LASIK surgeons at Cornea Associates of Texas are highly skilled when it comes to using the advanced technology used in today's LASIK procedures. In fact, many of them participated in the original Food and Drug Administration (FDA) trials for using excimer lasers in eye surgeries.
Reach out to our team today to find out if this procedure is right for you.
Can LASIK Treat Presbyopia?
Because LASIK treats the cornea, it is not an effective treatment for presbyopia. Presbyopia is an age-related inability to focus on nearby objects due to a loss of flexibility in the crystalline lens, which is the disc of tissue that lies behind the cornea within the eye. During a consultation, we can identify your vision needs and recommend the most effective treatment for your case.
Traditional vs. Custom LASIK Why Custom LASIK Provides Outstanding Results
Traditional LASIK differs from custom LASIK largely in how precisely the amount of correction you need is determined and achieved. Traditional LASIK is comparable to shoe sizes: although you may actually be a size 9.987, you will likely purchase a size 10 because shoes aren't available in such exact sizes. Although this approach has helped many to experience profound benefits, it doesn't capture the tiny flaws in the cornea that lead to problems with halos, glare, night vision, and other higher-order aberrations.
In contrast, custom LASIK, also called iDesign LASIK, uses a detailed three-dimensional map of the corneal surface to identify precisely the amount of correction you need. Instead of having to correct your eye to the nearest available degree, custom iDesign LASIK can provide correction to virtually any degree. This digital map is as unique as your fingerprint and records both lower- and higher-order aberrations so they can be corrected during eye surgery.

LASIK Surgery Produces Outstanding Results
LASIK eye surgery has shown impressive success rates, and a vast majority of patients who have undergone LASIK are very satisfied with their results.
What Are the Alternatives to LASIK?
If you don't qualify for LASIK, then PRK may be a better option to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Both methods alter the cornea to correct vision. However, in PRK, no flap is made. Instead, the epithelium is completely removed, and it regenerates after about three to four days.
Some patients are not candidates for LASIK or PRK due to the severity of their nearsightedness. At Cornea Associates of Texas, our surgeons are proud to offer these patients an alternative: the phakic intraocular lens. These lenses are placed in front of your natural lens to correct your vision.
