About LASIK Eye Surgery

Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis

At a Glance: LASIK, known medically as laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is the most popular type of laser eye surgery or lasik vision correction for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Conventional LASIK is based on your refraction, much like your glasses and contacts are. But wavefront driven LASIK technology has delivered sharper vision with fewer enhancements. CustomVision™ is a refinement of wavefront driven customized laser eye surgery (LASIK plus PRK) trademarked by Stahl Vision LASIK in Ohio, used to achieve high definition vision.

Nearsightedness

Your cornea is too curved or the eye is too long, causing light to focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurry distance vision.

Farsightedness

Your cornea is too flat, or the eye is too short, causing light to focus at a point beyond the retina, resulting in blurry close vision and sometimes blurry distance vision.

Astigmatism

Your cornea has an oval shape like a football (more curved in one direction than the other) causing distortion and blurred vision for both near and distance vision.

LASIK 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 for patients with these vision problems.

How LASIK In Ohio Works At Our Center

LASIK Step-By-Step

With LASIK, a thin flap of cornea is lifted, and the laser is then used to precisely remodel the undersurface. Following the procedure, the corneal flap is repositioned, where it quickly seals itself into place. Vision improvement with LASIK is quick, hours to days, with minimal to no discomfort.

In performing the LASIK procedure, Stahl Vision’s Ohio LASIK surgeons Drs. Stahl & Knowles begin by having a staff member place a few eyedrops in to numb the surface of your eye. This is to make sure you are comfortable during your treatment. In fact, you will not experience any discomfort during your procedure.

A gentle lid holder, called an eyelid speculum, is used during surgery to assist in keeping your eye open during your treatment. Based on your examination, your prescription, precise wavefront measurements (your eyes’ “fingerprint”), and other measurements and calculations collected at your LASIK consultation, a treatment plan will have been determined. Drs. Stahl & Knowles will program certain information into a computer that will monitor and control the actual application of the laser for your LASIK surgery. One of the key measurements we use is the result of your aberrometry found on your wavefront map, which is more than 20 times more accurate than conventional measurements of your eye.

During the first few days after your LASIK surgery, it is important to avoid bumping or rubbing your eyes. It is normal and expected for you to have a mild scratchy or dry sensation. Drs. Stahl & Knowles and the staff will be giving you detailed instructions regarding eye drops to use to assist with the healing process.
