What is Modern LASIK?

LASIK (Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a painless, surgical procedure that uses a laser to gently reshape the cornea, allowing light to focus more directly on the retina and correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

This blade-free, outpatient procedure takes only a few minutes per eye. In most cases, patients can return to work the next day.

Schedule A Consultation

A Milauskas Eye Institute LASIK Specialist will meet with you to discuss your vision and help you understand the options available. The consultation and the diagnostic testing are free, and neither obligates you to any future service. The meeting helps us determine whether you are a candidate for LASIK. If you are, you will have an opportunity to schedule your procedure at this appointment.

Arrive At The Office For LASIK

Our staff will greet you and introduce you to the ophthalmologist who will perform your procedure. The procedure itself takes about 15-20 minutes in our laser suite.

Travel Home For Recovery

After surgery, you must have a friend or family member provide your transportation home. You will experience improved vision right away, but we recommend not reading, driving, or using a computer for the rest of the day. After a good night’s sleep you can return to work the next day.

A Post-Op Checkup

It is important that you meet with a Milauskas Eye Institute doctor the day after your LASIK. We will confirm that your eyes are healthy and clear you for normal activity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a certain age to have LASIK surgery?

Ideal LASIK candidates fall between the ages of 21 to 38. However, there are a variety of factors considered prior to the recommendation for LASIK surgery. If you’re experiencing symptoms similar to that which is described above, please come in for a visit.

Can I have LASIK surgery performed if I recently changed my glasses prescription?

Typically, candidates for any refractive procedures must show little to no change in refraction (prescription) for at least 1 year. However, patients are still encouraged to come in for a visit so that our doctors gain a better understanding of your vision capabilities.

Is surgery painful?

Numbing drops are administered before surgery, so most of our patients report that this procedure is pain-free. However, mild discomfort is also possible with all corrective procedures.

How long will my results last?

Research has shown that LASIK is a permanent procedure. However, there are some instances in which patients need to have an enhancement—this is where the surgeon has to repeat the procedure to obtain satisfactory results.
