LASIK Eye Surgery & PRK

Suffering from blurry vision is a challenge. Waking up to put on prescription eyeglasses or contacts, can interfere with a variety of life experiences. While these are great options for most of our patients, some want a long-term solution. If you’re tired of your vision holding you back, LASIK surgery and PRK are wonderful options that will transform your life.

Lasik Procedure

LASIK surgery improves vision by reshaping the eye’s focusing element – the cornea. During the LASIK treatment, your surgeon creates a flap in your cornea that allows the laser to reshape the underlying layers of your cornea.

The creation of the flap and reshaping of the cornea repairs imperfections in the curvature of your eye that leads to distorted and blurry vision.

Many patients opt for LASIK surgery because of its quick recovery time. Most LASIK patients can see clearly within 24-hours after surgery.

PRK Procedure

PRK does not involve creating a flap. Instead, the outer layer of the cornea is gently removed, revealing the area to be treated. Like LASIK, the laser is used to reshape the underlying layers of the cornea, repairing imperfections in curvature that lead to distortion and blurry vision.

Following treatment, a bandage contact lens is placed over the cornea, allowing the cells to regenerate underneath.

Healing and recovery take longer with PRK because the tissue needs time to heal in and smooth over. Typically, full recovery can take up to 30 days.

Refractive Lens Exchange Procedure

Refractive Lens Exchange is the replacement of the eye’s natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). By exchanging the eye’s natural lens with an intraocular lens, light can then be properly passed through the lens to the retina to allow light and color to be processed clearly once again.

More than providing clarity to the patient’s vision, Refractive Lens Exchange corrects issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, astigmatism, and even glaucoma. These issues are corrected as an Excel Eye Care specialist assesses each patient, fitting them with either a monofocal or multifocal lens that is suited to their specific needs.

Monofocal lenses address patients with cataract deformities while also ensuring excellent vision and contrast with minimal disturbances. Multifocal lenses address patients struggling with either nearsightedness or farsightedness.

During a Refractive Lens Exchange procedure, a surgeon will carefully remove the existing lens of the eye by creating a small opening in the side of the cornea with a thin, needle-like tool. Through the cornea’s opening, the tool will be inserted and will carefully break up the center of the lens without damaging the eye or interfering with other eye functions. Then the lens is suctioned out. With a slightly wide tool, a surgeon will then insert the intraocular lens (IOL), completing the procedure.

How long does a Refractive Lens Exchange last?

The procedure only lasts around 15 minutes. The new intraocular lens will stand the test of time, providing the patient with vivid, clear vision for the rest of their life.

What is the recovery time from a Refractive Lens Exchange?

With a quick recovery time, most patients regain full eye function and resume normal activities after 3 days.
