LASIK Surgery in St. Louis and Des Peres
LASIK stands for Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis. It is a painless, outpatient procedure that reshapes the cornea utilizing ultraviolet light energy from the Excimer laser. Most people who require vision correction are candidates for LASIK, and nearly all levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can be corrected with this ten minute procedure.
The surgeons of Ophthalmology Consultants recognize the decision to have LASIK is a big one. Along with the experience of having performed more than 16,000 LASIK procedures to date, that is precisely why we offer the safest and most technologically advanced treatment available today. By combining the all laser Intralase method of flap creation with CustomVue technology our patients receive a personalized, blade-free LASIK experience. Clinical studies have shown that the combination of these two cutting edge technologies takes more patients to 20/20 vision and beyond with the highest level of safety!
Your vision is unique; as personal as your fingerprint or your DNA. The CustomVue System allows us to measure and treat these unique focusing imperfections of your eyes. With Intralase, a special laser is used instead of a blade to create the hinged flap in the cornea. This technique greatly increases the safety of LASIK by eliminating some of the most feared complications of LASIK which are associated with the oscillating blade used with traditional corneal flap makers. These FDA approved technologies offer the safest and most precise form of vision correction now available.
