LASIK Eye Surgery in Ohio at Stahl Vision an Ohio Lasik Center

At a Glance: lasik eye surgery, laser vision correction and laser eye surgery are synonyms, LASIK and PRK are specific, but different subtypes of lasik eyes surgery. Lasik eye surgery reshapes the front surface of the eye, called the cornea, to change focus and improve vision without glasses or contacts.  CustomVision™ is a refinement in nomograms and measurement technology trademarked by Dr. Brian Stahl of Stahl Vision LASIK in Dayton Ohio to achieve high contrast vision and can be done with both LASIK eyes surgery plus PRK.

LASIK Eye Surgery is the most advanced type of laser eye surgery used today to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK eye surgery is also the most common type of laser vision correction performed around the world  and here in Ohio for patients with these vision problems.

LASIK eye surgery Ohio pictureLASIK is actually an abbreviation for the medical term, Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis which describes a procedure whereby a laser is used to reshape the cornea from within. This type of laser eye surgery is called “lamellar eye surgery” because it is performed between the layers of the cornea. In performing the LASIK eyes surgery procedure, the LASIK surgeon begins by placing a few eye drops in your eyes to numb the surface of your eye. This is to make you are comfortable during your treatment. In fact, you will not experience any discomfort during your procedure.

After entering our Stahl Vision LASIK Eye Surgery Ohio surgery suite and reclining on the laser bed, our best eye surgeons, Dr. Brian Stahl and Dr. James Knowles,  will carefully place a fine instrument between your eyelids to help you remember to keep them open during the LASIK eye surgery procedure.

Our LASIK eye surgeons will then create a very thin layer, which is a “flap” of clear tissue in the center of the cornea. The surgeon is then able to gently fold the flap over and allow the inner layer of the cornea to be visible so that the laser can be applied. The application of the laser can take anywhere from 10-60 seconds depending on the type of prescription to be corrected. The laser and its application time are carefully controlled by a computer in the laser that the LASIK surgeon and staff have determined and programmed based on their measurements and calculations gathered from your LASIK eye surgery consultation.

After the laser has been applied, the corneal curvature will have the new shape necessary to correct your vision. Our Ohio LASIK surgery surgeons can then replace the flap into its original position. The cornea is a remarkable tissue in that it has extraordinary natural bonding qualities-similar to Velcro-so that when the flap is replaced is will adhere to the underlying the cornea without the need for stitches. The makes the healing and visual recover process very quick for most patients.

During the first few days after your LASIK eye surgery, it is important to avoid bumping or rubbing your eyes. It is normal and expected for you to have a mild sensation of "something in my eye", but you will usually be comfortable. The LASIK surgeon and staff will be giving you detailed instructions regarding eye drops to use to assist with the healing process after your eye surgery.  Please follow them carefully. Also you will be required to return for a number of followup visits to check the healing process. Most patients are able to pass an Ohio drivers’s eye test without eyeglasses or contacts within a day or so of their LASIK Eye Surgery.

It is most important to discuss all of your concerns and questions with our best Ohio LASIK surgeons and staff at Stahl Vision LASIK so that they can take the time to explain any information that you may be uncertain about.
