LASIK Vision Correction From a Name You Trust

LASIK Vision Correction can mean freedom from glasses and contacts! Imagine the time and money you could save by no longer needing a prescription in order to have excellent vision. While not everybody is a candidate, advancements in research and technology have improved outcomes and made it possible for more candidates to become patients. That said, the success of any eye surgery strongly depends on the skill of the surgeon, the technology, and your medical team fully understanding your eye condition. At Dean McGee Eye Institute (DMEI) these factors come together to provide our patients with the preferred option for LASIK eye surgery in the region.

Is LASIK surgery right for you?

Generally, people with moderate to severe nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism, or mild to moderate farsightedness, also with or without astigmatism, are good candidates. However, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery is to talk to a doctor who specializes in the procedure. DMEI is home to some of the most skilled LASIK surgeons in the country.


Dean McGee uses state-of-the-art laser eye surgery technology 

In LASIK, precise surgical technology is used to create and lift a thin flap of corneal tissue. At DMEI a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser is used to create the flap. When this flap is lifted, the surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the underlying corneal tissue and correct the vision problem. The flap is then placed back over the cornea and heals quickly without stitches. Working with state of the art technology, including Wavefront Aberrometry, is vital to a quick recovery.

At DMEI we combine the expertise and skill of leading surgeons in their field with the latest FDA-approved technology in laser eye surgery. This allows our physicians to tailor a safe LASIK solution that is right for your vision needs – leading to successful patient outcomes and happy patients.

The most common laser and surgical vision correction procedure performed today is LASIK (Laser in-situ Keratomileusis). In LASIK, a surgeon combines the use of a microkeratome and the excimer laser. The microkeratome is a very precise surgical instrument, which is used to create and lift a thin flap of corneal tissue. When this flap is lifted, the surgeon uses the laser to reshape the underlying corneal tissue (the stroma) and correct the nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. The flap is then placed back over the cornea and heals quickly without stitches. LASIK is our procedure of choice in most cases because it does not alter the surface of the cornea. This promotes faster healing and less chance of scarring or discomfort after the procedure.
