LASIK Q & A

What is LASIK?

LASIK is the most popular type of vision correction surgery. The Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology team treats myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism with LASIK. The surgery is short, taking only around 10-15 minutes for dramatic vision correction.

What are the different types of LASIK lasers?

Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology uses the following state-of-the-art lasers.

Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q laser

The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser offers fast and accurate LASIK procedures. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser measures your eye precisely to generate a 3D map representing your unique eye irregularities. Your surgeon uses this map to reshape your cornea in a highly precise way that goes beyond correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser greatly enhances overall vision strength and detail.

Advanced CustomVue®

Advanced CustomVue is the broadest-use laser available. This laser uses a proprietary algorithm that gives your ophthalmologist the highly precise measurements they need to give you optimal outcomes for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Patients also enjoy improved night vision after LASIK with Advanced CustomVue.

IntraLase™ TM FS

IntraLase TM FS is a completely blade-free LASIK. In other types of LASIK, a small blade is normally used to make a corneal flap incision during the surgery. With IntraLase TM FS, your surgeon makes the corneal flap incision with only the laser. This method allows for optimal healing and high patient satisfaction.

When it's time to schedule your LASIK, your surgeon will discuss your needs and vision correction goals with you to decide the right laser type.

How does LASIK work?

Your surgeon numbs your eye using a local anesthetic and then creates a small incision in the outer layer of your cornea. They gradually and gently reshape your cornea to the optimal shape for vision correction. Then, your surgeon replaces the corneal flap, and it then heals gradually in place.  

What kind of results can I expect after LASIK?

The day after LASIK, many patients say that they have much better vision. Following your LASIK, you'll likely be able to go about your day-to-day life without needing vision correction. But, it's important to know that you may not technically have perfect vision. Ninety percent of patients achieve very good vision between 20/20 and 20/40.
