Confidence & Trust through Experience and Caring
The eye surgeons at The Eye Clinic of Texas have been performing LASIK since 1991. With more than 25 years of experience as pioneers of laser eye surgery our results and outcomes are consistent with the LASIK Quality of Life Collaboration Project between the FDA, National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense and data from PROWL studies reported by the FDA. We know and have demonstrated that with thorough screening and preoperative testing, careful patient selection and realistic patient expectations, in the hands of experienced surgeons, there is little negative effect and LASIK is safe, effective, predictable and beneficial over long time horizons.
LASIK with Eximer Laser
LASIK is a type of refractive eye surgery called "lamellar eye surgery" because it is performed between the layers of the cornea. All Laser LASIK is actually a precise two-step procedure. The first step of the procedure involves making a "flap" with a Zeiss VisuMax® Femtosecond Laser under which the cornea is gently reshaped and refocused using the Alcon® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Excimer Laser. All Laser LASIK Eye Surgery at The Eye Clinic of Texas employs some of the most advanced technology available for Laser Eye Surgery patients.
Tiny pulses of laser light pass harmlessly through the outer portion of your cornea and form a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of your eye. Then, just prior to LASIK surgery, we lift the corneal flap by gently and easily separate the tissue where these bubbles have formed, and apply the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Excimer Laser energy to reshape and refocus the cornea.
Is It Painful?
No, the procedure is gentle and we apply some numbing drops to the surface of the eye to make sure you are comfortable.
How long does All Laser LASIK with VisuMax® Method Take?
The creation of the flap itself takes only about 15-20 seconds per eye. Including preparation time, the entire LASIK procedure takes about 10 minutes.
