LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is an FDA-approved refractive procedure intended to reduce your dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive procedure at Kraff Eye because of the quick results and recovery time it provides.

LASIK Consultation

Our LASIK surgeons conduct a thorough examination during your complimentary consultation to make sure you are a candidate for the procedure. They want to make sure you are educated about the expected outcomes and inherent risks associated with the procedure. Click here to read more about what to expect at your consultation.

Your LASIK Procedure

The procedure itself takes about 10 minutes to complete and requires no needles or stitches. Our doctors use the safest, most progressive technologies to ensure you get the best possible outcome from your LASIK surgery.

During LASIK, a thin layer of tissue is folded back from the surface of your cornea using either an IntraLase laser or a microkeratome. Our doctors can then use the VISX S4 tracking laser to reshape your cornea based on your individual eye condition. The procedure can help treat most eye conditions including but not limited to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Most of our patients will see a noticeable improvement in vision within a few hours and many are able to return to normal activities within 24 hours.

To prepare for LASIK surgery, you should read our section on what to expect on the day of your surgery.
