LASIK Eye Surgery for St. Charles Missouri

If you are considering LASIK eye surgery in St. Charles, MO, it is crucial to do as much research as possible to understand what to expect before, during, and after such an important procedure. One of our main goals here at Ophthalmology Consultants, is to make sure that all of our patients are as comfortable as possible. One of the ways we do this is by providing all the information you need about the different processes, procedures, or tests we have available. Although LASIK surgery may seem like a simple, in-office 10-minute procedure, it uses some complex and state-of-the-art technology to help correct and improve vision. LASIK surgery uses the ultraviolet light energy from an Excimer laser to reshape the cornea of the eye. The painless procedure is used to correct all levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

At Ophthalmology Consultants, we recognize that deciding to undergo LASIK surgery is a huge decision, and that going with a qualified and experienced physician plays a major role in your choice. Ophthalmology Consultants is proud to offer the safest and most technologically advanced treatment around, and not only that, but our surgeons have performed more than 16,000 LASIK procedures to date. By using the all laser Intralase method of flap creation (www.intralase.com) with Custom-Vue technology (www.personalbestvision.com), we are able to provide each patient with a personalized LASIK experience.

As you may be aware, tradition eye surgery used to require an oscillating blade to cut a hinged flap in the cornea of the eye, which could cause major consequences with even the smallest mistake. Using Intralase, however, removes the risk of using sharp blades on such a delicate area as the eye. 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.
