How Does LASIK Work?

Why do we need glasses?

How we see is determined by how light is focused through the cornea on the back of the eye. 

When the cornea is shaped irregularly it causes us to see imperfectly. The shape of the cornea can cause us to be nearsighted, farsighted, or to see with an astigmatism; which causes overall blurry vision.

How Long Is A Treatment?

With our state of the art LASIK technology, a typical laser treatment to correct the cornea takes 10 seconds on average.


The first laser used in a LASIK treatment is a Femtosecond laser. The Ziemer Z8 Femtosecond laser provides unparalleled results and has become known as Z-LASIK
