What Is LASIK?

LASIK is a highly-effective form of laser eye surgery that permanently solves refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, helping you achieve crystal clear vision without the need for contacts or eyeglasses. LASIK works by using a handheld, medical-grade laser to literally reshape the surface of the cornea, correcting the deformations that cause distorted vision. By correcting these deformations and restoring correct corneal shape, we're able to solve the root of vision problems and achieve gorgeous, crystal clear vision permanently. 

What Are the Benefits of LASIK?

Today, LASIK is one of the most popular laser eye treatments on the market, That makes sense: LASIK is a convenient, simple procedure that requires little downtime, and it allows patients to permanently solve refractive errors and eliminate the need for glasses and contacts once and for all. If you LASIK laser eye surgery with your Ogden, UT ophthalmologist, here are just a few of the benefits you'll enjoy:

  • Painless, noninvasive procedure
  • Success rate of more than 95%
  • While 20/20 vision isn't guaranteed, it's possible for some patients
  • Even if 20/20 isn't achieved, LASIK still produces dramatically clearer vision
  • Average cost of $500-$2,500 per eye, making for a long-lasting, cost-effective treatment

Photorefractive Keratectomy

In addition to LASIK, your Ogden eye doctor is proud to offer photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), another effective form of laser eye treatment. PRK also uses medical lasers to reshape the cornea and solve refractive errors, but instead of manually reshaping the cornea, PRK completely removes the top layer of the cornea. This lets the cornea heal and regrow naturally on its own, helping to ensure a smooth, normal, and healthy final shape. After the procedure, we'll place a bandage contact lens on the cornea, allowing it to heal over the course of the next few days to several months. Once the healing process is finished, your cornea will be fully healthy and normally shaped, correcting any refractive errors. 

Conductive Keratoplasty

Finally, conductive keratoplasty (CK) offers another option for correcting refractive errors. Instead of lasers, CK applies heat to warped parts of the cornea in the form of radio waves. These waves stimulate the connective collagen to shrink, tightening the cornea to make the slope steeper and sharpen the focus of vision. Full recovery can take up to a few weeks, but CK is a non-invasive procedure that often produces immediate results.
