What is Refractive Surgery? (LASIK)

  • Refractive Surgery (LASIK) improves your vision by re-shaping your cornea with highly precise beams of laser light allowing your eye to refract light more precisely onto your retina.
  • The two generally accepted methods utilize different approaches for treatment.
  • Wavefront Guided and Topography Driven. Currently, these two separate methods have been adopted by surgeons based on availability of the technology and cost where they perform surgery.
  • The most advanced method is identified as "iDesign Refractive Studio." It is the first and only FDA approved system that combines and measures both inside (Wavefront) and outside (Topography)

Choosing the Best Procedure For You

At Clearview, we believe there is not one single procedure that is right for everyone. The 3 factors that will determine the right personalized treatment for you are:

  • Amount of your prescription
  • Thickness of your cornea
  • Your lifestyle

If you have had any prior surgeries, that may also affect which procedure is best for you.

Our Technology

Dr. Feldman performing LASIK eye surgery

Clearview utilizes advanced FDA-approved all-laser technology in order to provide excellent results with safe treatment.

Older methods used a tool called a microkeratome (Razor blade device) to cut the cornea and create a flap. This method is still employed by centers looking to reduce costs for discount pricing.

Our Laser Vision Technology includes:

  • iFS® Intralase Laser - Femtosecond laser that allows LASIK flap customization and individual treatment
  • iDesign® Refractive Studio - Reshapes the cornea using wavefront (inside) and topography (outside) measurements, in order to precisely recontour your eye's imperfections. (LASIK and ASA)
  • Visumax® - Creates a very precise LASIK flap. During SMILE, the refractive lenticule and small opening are created in one single step without a flap.
