LASIK, which is the acronym for 'laser assisted in situ keratomileusis,' is the most commonly performed laser vision correction procedure for patients suffering from nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.
The FDA first approved laser vision correction in the US in 1995. Now LASIK laser technology has improved to the point where the results are phenomenal. Each patient's treatment is so precise and customized that, following custom LASIK, it is common for their vision to be better than it had been while wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Once Dr. Feldman has reshaped your cornea to optimize your vision, your eye's ability to focus light onto the retina will be greatly improved. The result is extremely clear vision the majority of the time without the aid or hassle of contacts or glasses.
Dr. Sandy T. Feldman uses state of the art laser technology to create the corneal flap.
This innovative technique for creating the flap utilizes an IntraLase® laser. The IntraLase laser works by producing extremely fast little bursts of energy. These little pulses of light shine through the eye's surface to a predetermined microscopic depth. Each pulse of light creates a tiny bubble below the surface of the cornea, and they accumulate until they've covered the entire treatment area. This enables Dr. Feldman to separate the flap from the inner layers of the cornea.
Dr. Feldman has excellent outcomes using both flap techniques.
