Laser Vision Correction
LASIK can reduce or eliminate your need for corrective eyewear. The procedure involves using a microkeratome blade or the IntraLase® laser to create a flap in the outer layer of the cornea. An excimer laser then reshapes the center layer of the cornea, allowing light to focus properly on the retina. We use VISX CustomVue™ wavefront technology to generate a topographic map of your cornea prior to the procedure. This information guides us in tailoring the procedure to your unique needs as part of our custom approach. This quick, safe procedure involves only a short recovery.
Like LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, uses laser technology to reshape the cornea and enhance vision. It differs in that the outer surface of the cornea is completely removed in order to treat the center layer. We use wavefront technology to customize the procedure based on the unique contours of your cornea. Although PRK recovery takes longer than LASIK recovery, the procedure carries no risk of flap complications. PRK is often recommended to patients with thin corneas. During a consultation. our doctors will determine if PRK or LASIK is right for you.
Dr. Miller uses the Catalys™ and LenSx® lasers to perform cataract surgery and correct corneal astigmatism safely, precisely, and efficiently. Both laser systems give Dr. Miller greater control over each phase of cataract surgery, including the initial incisions and the softening of the crystalline lens. Once the clouded lens is removed, an intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted in the natural position in the eye to restore your vision. Using laser technology for cataract surgery and correction of astigmatism, reduces the risk of complications and provides immense benefits over traditional methods.
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are used during laser cataract surgery as well as lens implant surgery to replace the crystalline lens and restore vision. We offer several kinds of IOLs. Monofocal IOLs offer vision correction at a single distance (near, intermediate, or far), and multifocal IOLs such as ReSTOR® can correct vision at a range of distances. We also provide accommodating IOLs such as Crystalens® lenses, which shift position in accordance with eye muscle movement, providing correction at a range of distances. Toric IOLs can be used to treat patients with astigmatism.
Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey incorporates the latest technological advancements into every area of our practice. We use wavefront technology to generate detailed topographic maps of the cornea that guide our vision correction procedures. We use the most up-to-date laser systems to reshape the cornea during LASIK and PRK, and to remove the crystalline lens during laser cataract surgery. We also offer advanced treatments for conditions such as glaucoma, dry eye, and complications due to diabetes.
