Check us out on Glassdoor! https://bit.ly/2EUI8iu What We Do Procedures: LASIK LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. At LasikPlus, we utilize 100% bladeless, all-laser LASIK surgery. By using a laser to prepare the cornea, we are able to offer our patients improved precision and recovery over past methods, such as the use of a microkeratome blade. PRK The difference between PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) and LASIK, is in the preparation of the cornea. For PRK, the corneal tissue is gently wiped from the cornea. The reshaping of the cornea for the correction of the refractive errors is identical to LASIK. The PRK procedure offers distinct advantages over LASIK for some patients. Only an expert LASIK doctor can determine which procedure is best for you. Want to learn more about what we do? Check us out on Facebook! https://bit.ly/2HH4dE5
