Slide the arrow to the right to see the clarity LASIK can provide.
LASIK eye surgery is a vision correction procedure that reduces or eliminates the need for glasses or contacts for people with refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. During LASIK eye surgery, your doctor reshapes the cornea using state-of-the-art laser technology, resulting in clearer vision.
Minnesota Eye Consultants offers the most advanced LASIK technology, called Intralase, or iLASIK. Intralase is a fully customized blade-free LASIK procedure. When you undergo an Intralase procedure, you get the most custom, individualized LASIK procedure possible.
Your eye is unique—as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. Minnesota Eye Consultants uses the WaveScan WaveFront system to create a 3-D map of your cornea. This provides detailed information on your vision correction requirements to develop a personalized treatment plan, just for you.
All information gathered from the WaveScan WaveFront System is used during your LASIK procedure and helps develop your custom laser vision correction plan for your surgeon.
LASIK can be a life changing procedure, allowing you freedom from glasses and contacts, but certain individuals are better suited for the procedure than others.
The best way to determine if you are a LASIK Candidate is to schedule a consultation with one of our LASIK Specialists. This consultation is free for most patients – call our office to learn if you’d be eligible for a free LASIK screening. We can determine if LASIK is right for you or we can explore your options for LASIK alternatives.
If you don’t qualify for LASIK, it doesn’t have to mean the end of your vision correction journey. Though LASIK is the most popular procedure, there are plenty of other excellent methods of correcting your vision. Visit our LASIK Alternatives page to learn more about these refractive treatments!
