"Get The Vision You've Been Dreaming of" at a Price You Never Imagined
WHAT IS THE LASIK SURGICAL PROCEDURE?
  • STEP 1: The Lasik surgery is simple, painless and lasts less than 3 minutes per eye. In general, both eyes are operated on during the same visit. First of all, there is no injection; only few anesthetic drops are used. During the procedure, the surgeon will be reassuring you and talking to you. When the eye is ready, the surgeon will use the eye lid retractor to keep your eye open during the surgery. The first step consists of lifting a thin layer of the cornea with a precise instrument, the micro-keratome. This layer is a simple flap since it remains attached from one side.  
  • STEP 2: Then the surgeon asks you to focus on a red light and the laser ablation begins. In total, the time to sculpt the eye is a matter of seconds. The Nidek Navex lasik laser is equipped with a sophisticated tracker system. In case, during the procedure,if you have difficulty fixing your eye on the light, the surgeon can program the laser to follow your eye using infra-red rays.  
  • STEP 3: After the Laser ablation, the flap is placed back, and the surgery is over. Immediately after the surgery, your vision will be blurred, as when you open your eyes in the water. You can expect a prickling sensation that will last few hours. Normally, the morning after, your eyesight is good enough to allow you to your normal life (go back to work, drive your vehicle). The next day there will be an important follow-up that should not be missed. Subsequent follow-ups will take place at the following intervals: 10 days, 45 days, 6 months, 9 months, 18 and 24 months.
