reshapes the cornea while you sleep.

safe and effective for patient of all ages when worn during sleeping hours, earning
this therapy FDA approval for nighttime use.
The result for you is great vision 24 hours a day – without the lenses during waking
hours and while they’re in at night – with correction of myopia (nearsightedness)
and myopia with astigmatism.

OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography
With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing our doctors to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with early detection, diagnosis and treatment guidance for retinal diseases and conditions, including age related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Eye Disease, among others.
In addition, OCT is often used to evaluate disorders of the optic nerve. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers and sends signals from your retina to your brain, where these signals are interpreted as the images you see. The OCT exam is helpful in determining changes to the fibers of the optic nerve, such as those caused by Glaucoma.

LASIK (Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis)
LASIK offers a number of benefits over the other
forms of laser vision correction because it is performed under a protective layer
of corneal tissue. As a result, there is less surface area to heal, less risk of
scarring, less risk of corneal haze, less postoperative discomfort, less postoperative
need for medications, and vision returns more rapidly, often within a day or so.
The LASIK Procedure
1) The procedure begins with numbing your eye with an “eye drop” anesthesia
2) An eyelid holder is placed between your eyelids to prevent you from blinking
3) An instrument known as a microkeratome or a laser makes a protective flap in
6) After LASIK some patients report a slight discomfort that usually resolves within
7) Specific ocular medications are given to take for the next week to promote healing
