Achieve Clearer Vision

Our team has been improving the lives of our patients with procedures like LASIK for over 30 years. We are pleased to offer many of the latest refractive surgical procedures, including LASIK, Epi-LASEK, refractive lens exchange (RLE), intra-corneal implants, and implantable contact lenses (ICL). 

Your vision goals are unique–during a consultation, our ophthalmologists can assess your vision and get to know your individual needs and preferences before building you a treatment plan. Book an appointment at one of our Southwest Florida locations to see firsthand the difference LASIK can make in your life.

What Is LASIK?

LASIK, or laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is the most common type of laser eye surgery performed. In this procedure, your surgeon will precisely remove corneal tissue using a laser to reshape the cornea, changing its focusing power. At Center For Sight, we use a combination of laser technology to perform blade-free LASIK with micron-level precision and accuracy.

How LASIK Works

The LASIK procedure involves 2 steps. First, your surgeon will make a flap using the IntraLase laser, and then they will reshape the cornea with the WaveLight EX500 excimer laser. Together, this technology allows us to provide each patient with a customized and precise laser treatment.

Advantages of Blade-Free LASIK

There are several advantages to LASIK laser eye surgery, including:

  • Improved safety
  • Better vision
  • The highest degree of predictability
  • Reduced dry eye symptoms
  • Individualized flaps

Another laser eye surgery we perform is Epi-LASEK (or PRK). This surgery is similar to LASIK, but instead of reshaping the cornea through a flap, we reshape the cornea directly on the surface.

In Epi-LASEK, we reshape the cornea with help from the WaveLight EX500 excimer laser after removing the outer layer of the cornea (epithelium). We’ll then bandage your eye to protect it throughout the healing process, which tends to be slightly longer compared to LASIK.

An implantable contact lens (ICL) is a lens placed inside of the eye. This procedure can provide you with many benefits, including:

  • Your natural lens does not need to be removed when placing the ICL
  • The lens tucks behind the iris, providing clearer vision
  • An ICL can be removed and replaced if your refractive error changes with time
