WHAT IS LASIK?
Our team at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX has extensive experience with many of the most effective refractive surgery techniques, including bladeless LASIK. LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most requested refractive treatment in the eye health industry. Millions of patients all over the world have undergone this procedure and are incredibly happy with their improved vision. LASIK surgery can reduce or completely correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism by changing the curvature of the cornea.

HOW IS LASIK DONE?
To be a good candidate for LASIK, you must be at least 18 years old and have sufficient corneal thickness. The majority of individuals won't experience any discomfort during their procedure, and it typically lasts around ten minutes. Before we begin, your eyes will be fully numbed with eye drops to maximize your comfort. We will then use our innovative laser device to create an extremely thin corneal flap and gently fold the flap back to alter the curvature of the underlying corneal tissue. As soon as this is done, we will move the corneal flap to its correct location, and the site will heal on its own. Almost all individuals who receive LASIK will experience clear vision within one day.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASIK?
Incredible developments in ocular technology are allowing a growing number of individuals to take advantage of laser refractive surgery. If you were told in the past that you weren't a good candidate for LASIK, set up a consultation at Focal Point Vision to learn if that's changed. Patients who aren't suitable for LASIK could be candidates for a different vision correction option, such as PRK. We are pleased to give our San Antonio, TX patients their clearest eyesight.
