The introduction of the iLASIK procedure means the wait for better vision is over. This procedure has been used to treat more eyes than any other laser vision treatment available today. No other system measures up to the iLASIK procedure, combining the world's most advanced vision correction advancements into one safe and effective treatment.
The iLASIK procedure combines two advanced lasers with a 3-D mapping process in one integrated, blade-free procedure. To begin with, 3-D mapping captures your personalized refractive signature which, like a fingerprint, is unique to each of your eyes and provides the customized correction needed to personalize your iLASIK treatment. Next, a very thin, precise flap of corneal tissue is created. This flap is folded back, and your personalized iLASIK Procedure is performed.
iLASIK is affordable with payment plans provided. The monthly payment per eye is in the range of a cable TV or cell phone bill.

Potential side effects to laser refractive surgery may include glare, dry eye, as well as other visual anomalies. iLASIK uses a femtosecond laser that cuts a flap on the surface of the cornea; potential side effects may include flap related complications. Consult with your eye care professional and Patient Information Booklet (available at consultation) regarding the potential risks and benefits for laser refractive surgery. Results may vary for each individual patient.
