What better time to be glasses-free than summertime? iLASIK can change your quality of life for the better by giving you better vision without relying on glasses or contacts. You can enjoy all of your favorite summertime activities – swimming, skiing, walking on the beach, lounging at the lake, fishing…whatever your summer plans entail – all without glasses! South Georgia Eye Partners offers the latest iLASIK technology, and our physicians are top-knotch.
iLASIK is the latest in laser vision correction technology. An upgrade from traditional LASIK, iLASIK uses the exclusive Intralase Laser and is the preferred method of treatment for patients seeking a LASIK procedure. So what’s the difference between traditional LASIK and iLASIK? It’s all about the corneal flap. You can read about the differences in the two surgeries here.
For people who have refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, iLASIK surgery could be the solution. The latest in laservision correction technology, iLASIK (laster-assisted in situ keratomileusis), uses a laser to cut the corneal flap instead of a traditional blade.
The result of iLASIK is a more precise, comfortable procedure for the patients. The surgery is an outpatient procedure that effectively treats the refractive errors mentioned above.
iLASIK surgery might be a good option for you if you:
- Want to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses
- Are free of eye disease
- Have an appropriate refractive error
