LASIK: Safe and Effective vision correction

laser creating a corneal flapAre you currently considering LASIK eye surgery in New Jersey? Look no further then Dr. Kenneth S. Miller and the Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey. LASIK, short for Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis, has become the world's most widely performed laser vision correction surgery, with millions of procedures performed each year. LASIK eye surgery is performed by gently reshaping the corneal tissue beneath a protective flap created in the outer layer of the cornea. LASIK is a painless laser procedure with a quick recovery time and consistently superior visual results. LASIK eye surgery in New Jersey is effective on patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.

During LASIK eye surgery, we first numb the patient's eyes with anesthetic drops. Our doctor then uses the IntraLase, a femtosecond laser which is programmed to gently create a precise thickness flap, in the shallow outer layer of the cornea. Once this protective flap is folded back, we then use the VISX S4 excimer laser to precisely reshape the underlying corneal tissue, allowing light to focus correctly on the retina in the back of the eye. This portion of the procedure is painless and usually lasts less than one minute. Once the laser reshaping is complete, we then replace the flap into its original position, where it bonds naturally with the surrounding tissue.

LASIK eye surgery in New Jersey has several advantages over previous types of laser vision correction surgery. Healing time is significantly reduced thanks to the protective flap. There is also less risk of side-effects such as corneal haze, less discomfort following surgery, and a much more rapid return of vision, sometimes in as little as one day.
