LASIK Eye Surgery Basics
Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is the most common type of laser eye surgery.
The M LASIK Center is conveniently located in Richardson and serves patients throughout the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. The LASIK procedure at our center is performed with the patient’s utmost safety and comfort in mind. Dr. Mazaheri offers the most advanced and precise technology, including Wavefront™ guided LASIK, and Intralase® bladeless LASIK to help his patients achieve superior vision correction results.
Prior to surgery, eye drops are administered to numb the eye and ensure maximum comfort throughout your LASIK procedure. A device is positioned to prevent blinking during LASIK surgery, and then the corneal flap is created using either a microkeratome or the Intralase® laser. Dr. Mazaheri carefully folds back the flap, exposing the inner layer of the cornea, and uses an excimer laser to reshape the area according to the patient’s unique vision correction needs.
Generally, the laser is applied to each eye for less than one minute. The corneal flap is then folded back into place, where it adheres to the eye naturally and securely. During the LASIK procedure, Dr. Mazaheri will explain each step, from start to finish, and will make you as comfortable as possible. At our Richardson and Dallas area office, LASIK patients are often able to see the change in their vision just a few hours after surgery.
