LASIK / Refractive Procedures
CEI, a world renown center, an excellent choice for patients who want laser vision correction, or LASIK, surgery because of its track record for excellent visual outcomes. LASIK involves using a laser to reshape the cornea, the transparent front part of the eye that provides most of the eye's optical power. The surgery corrects refractive disorders, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, allowing the retina to focus light properly.
LASIK surgeons at CEI utilize a number of advanced technologies. One example is the IntraLase Laser, now used in 95% of all refractive surgeries at CEI. IntraLase uses tiny pulses of laser light, a quadrillionth of a second each, to create the corneal flap, which the doctor folds back in order to perform the refractive surgery. It improves safety and allows the eye to heal faster than surgical methods using a keratome (or metal blade) to create the corneal flap.
