I decided to finally get LASIK after thinking about it for years. I went to 3 different doctors for consults, one of them being Dr. Miller... He was extremely nice and very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I felt very confident making my decision to go through with the surgery with Dr. Miller. He made sure I was comfortable before and during my procedure, I don't know how he did it but he did (I was EXTREMEMLY nervous, I was scared to death prior to the procedure). It has now been almost 4 months since I had LASIK done and I am very happy with my results and couldn't be happier with my post-op appointments and care.

From the moment I walked through the door, Dr. Ken Miller made me feel comfortable, safe and confident that I was in the BEST HANDS (literally) for Lasik eye surgery. His ability to communicate the most complex medical terms in a manner I was able to understand continued to reinforce my confidence in him and his team with a sense of comfort and kindness. It is not often you are able to experience the best health care has to offer with a sense of humanity as well - I would recommend Dr. Ken Miller for anyone considering Lasik.

LASIK Eye Surgery Has a Track Record of Success

LASIK Can Improve Your Vision Immediately

Reduced Hassle

LASIK can minimize your need for glasses or contacts, relieving you of the daily hassles of wearing corrective lenses. You can say goodbye to searching for missing eyeglasses and dealing with applying, removing, and cleaning contact lenses.

Immediate Results

While it may take up to six months for your results to stabilize, most of our patients at Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey notice an improvement in their vision directly after their LASIK procedure.

Freedom and Flexibility

After LASIK eye surgery, you can enjoy a wider range of activities with much greater ease. Instead of worrying about losing or damaging your glasses or contacts, you can focus on enjoying your life.

Vision Candidates

Lower-Order Aberrations

LASIK eye surgery is effective on patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. These lower-order refractive errors cause blurry vision due to abnormalities in the shape of the cornea, and they can be temporarily addressed with glasses and contact lenses.

  • Nearsightedness: Nearsighted patients have difficulty seeing objects at a distance because the cornea is too steep or rounded.
  • Farsightedness: Farsighted patients have difficulty seeing objects up close because the cornea is too flat.
  • Astigmatism: Patients with astigmatism may have difficulty seeing objects at all distances because the cornea is shaped more like an egg rather than a round ball.

Higher-Order Aberrations

With custom LASIK, we can improve the quality of your vision even more by correcting higher-order aberrations. These are caused by more nuanced abnormalities of the eyes, which can be detected by the wavefront imaging technology used in the custom LASIK procedure. There are dozens of types of higher-order aberrations, but some of the most common that we can treat include:

  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Contrast issues
  • Halos
  • Glare
  • Blurring
  • Double vision
  • Starburst patterns

Treatment Is Quick and Painless

LASIK is a painless vision correction procedure with a quick recovery time. It is performed by gently reshaping the corneal tissue beneath a protective flap created in the outer layer of the cornea.

Anesthesia

Prior to the procedure, patients have the option of taking anti-anxiety medication to keep them calm during the appointment. When LASIK eye surgery begins, we numb the patient's eyes with anesthetic drops.

Creation of the Flap

Our doctor uses the IntraLase femtosecond laser, which is programmed to gently create a three-sided flap in the shallow outer layer of the cornea. The laser is capable of safely creating flaps with the precise thickness needed to produce successful results.

Corneal Reshaping

Once the protective flap is folded back, we 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. The laser reshaping portion of the procedure is painless and usually lasts less than one minute.

Replacing the Flap

Once laser reshaping is complete, we replace the flap into its original position, where it bonds naturally with the surrounding tissue.

Discomfort after Surgery

Our patients usually experience low levels of discomfort following surgery. At Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey, we recommend that patients take a nap after surgery to avoid any blinking action that can irritate the eyes. Patients can also take pain medication to address discomfort. In most cases, discomfort is gone several hours after the procedure. At this point, the eyes may feel sensitive to light. Staying indoors in low light conditions for a couple of days can help.
