LASIK Center

Are you searching for a LASIK Surgeon in the greater Portsmouth area? LASIK (Laser assisted In-situ Keratomileusis): combines the proven techniques of both corneal flap and excimer laser surgery, resulting in dramatic results and rapid visual recovery. LASIK eye surgery is effective for correcting most cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

About the LASIK Process

Prior to surgery, your Portsmouth LASIK surgeon will go through the procedure step-by-step so that you will know what will be taking place. Before starting with the procedure, one of your eyes will be covered while the other eye is being treated.

Next, a series of numbing drops are placed in the eye, making LASIK a virtually pain-free procedure. Once the eye is numbed, a lid holder is placed on the eye, which prevents the eye from blinking. Patients are then directed to watch a blinking red light during treatment in an effort to minimize movement.

LASIK Surgery Portsmouth

During the bladeless treatment, patients will have a small instrument, similar to a clear plastic tube, placed on the eye to help guide the laser light. Patients will feel a slight pressure that causes the vision in the eye to dim, and feels like a slight squeeze on the eye. A protective layer is created, called a corneal flap, which is gently moved out of the way exposing the inner tissue of the cornea.

Bladeless Laser Treatment Portsmouth

Using either the Mel80 Laser by Carl Zeiss or the Bausch & Lomb branded Technolas 217z excimer laser, under computer and surgeon control, the laser treats the patients prescription using short and cool beam pulses. In addition, an infrared eye tracking system monitors the eye position and keeps the eye centered allowing for small, natural eye movements. If too much movement is detected, the laser will automatically stop and the surgeon will make the necessary modifications so that you get a precise and comprehensive treatment. The actual laser treatment usually takes less than one minute per eye to complete.

After your Portsmouth LASIK eye surgery, patients are advised to go home and “rest” their eyes for the remainder of the day. Patients are given eye drops to keep the eyes clean and moist and sleeping goggles and sunglasses are provided to help protect eyes from being rubbed.

"I am writing this less than 24 hours after the procedure, and I'm thrilled with the results. I was very nervous, as I am about any medical procedure, but the staff and doctors could not have made the experience better. It was painless, fast and everyone made me comfortable. And the results are amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
