Lasik Eye Surgery
What is LASIK Surgery?
Laser-Assisted- In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK), is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. It is a common elective surgery performed worldwide. The aim of the procedure is to reduce your dependence on prescription glasses and/or contact lenses. Recent advances in technology allow doctors to preform bladeless custom laser treatments for each individual.
Bladeless LASIK uses two separate lasers lasers to correct your vision. The first laser creates a flap which is lifted by your physician and the second laser is then used to treat your glasses prescription. The flap is then re-positioned on your eye. In most instances, patients notice an improvement in their vision by the next day. We are proud to announce that Dr. Lemanski is the first and currently only independent physician in the Capital Region certified to use these systems for superior surgical outcomes.
If you are sick of wearing glasses, you might be a candidate for Lasik eye surgery. Please call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our ophthalmologists.
