LASIK and Laser Eye Surgery for St. Louis

At Ophthalmology Consultants, we strive to make sure that all of our patients are as comfortable as possible by providing all the information you need about whatever process, procedure, or test that you undergo with us. When it comes to LASIK surgery, there are many facts and details to be aware of before even considering the procedure. The first, and most important thing you should know, is that LASIK is a procedure that uses the ultraviolet light energy from an Excimer laser to reshape the cornea of the eye. This ten-minute procedure is painless and is intended for those who require vision correction on all levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Opting to go with LASIK surgery is a big decision, and Ophthalmology Consultants in St. Louis, MO recognizes how difficult the choice can be. It may ease your mind to know that we offer the safest and most technologically advanced treatment around and that our surgeons have performed more than 16,000 LASIK procedures to date. We provide each patient with a personalized LASIK experience by combining the all laser Intralase method of flap creation with CustomVue technology. According to recent clinical studies, the use of these two advanced technologies results in more patients achieving 20/20 vision with the highest level of safety!

Traditional eye surgery used to require using an oscillating blade, which when used on something as delicate as the human eye, could result in major consequences with just the smallest mistakes. Using Intralase, however removes the risk of sharp blades and replaces it a special laser to more safely and precisely create the hinged flap of the cornea. And considering that your vision is as unique as your DNA or fingerprint, we are able to measure and treat the unique focusing imperfections of your eyes with the CustomVue System. Both of these FDA approved technologies offer the most accurate and safest method of vision correction available today.
