Lasik (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure designed to reduce or eliminate your need for eye glasses and contact lenses. Here at Michiana Eye Center, our eye surgeons now perform an all laser, femto-second custom procedure that is not only faster than older methods, but extremely precise as well.
The Ziemer femto-second laser uses direct, rapid pulses of infrared light to create a lattice of tiny puzzle-piece like bubbles around the outside of the cornea, separating the first two layers of the cornea from the remaining corneal bed . Unlike using a microkeratome blade to create the flap, the z-Lasik method is much more precise and has far less complications.
Using a Custom Wavefront Map of your cornea, the STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser reshapes the entire front surface of the cornea. Just as no two finger prints are alike, no two corneal prints are alike. Using the custom Lasik method our surgeons are able to design a treatment that is uniquely tailored to the specifications of each patient individually enabling you to return to your natural ability to see clearly. Many custom Lasik patients notice a decrease in glare and “halos” commonly associated with night driving.
