Patient Procedures at Empire Eye


The most common types of refractive surgery are LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), and implantable contact lenses (ICL).

Bladeless LASIK surgery, also known as All-Laser LASIK, is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery in practice today. LASIK can treat mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Bladeless LASIK uses a femtosecond laser to create a thin flap in the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye.

The femtosecond laser provides the surgeon with more options for flap size, shape, and orientation, allowing a more customized LASIK procedure for each patient’s personalized vision needs. The femtosecond laser eliminates the need for bladed (microkeratome) surgery. The laser creates a corneal flap with edges that enables the flap to fit more securely in place after LASIK surgery, potentially reducing healing time. An excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue to correct your vision, then the flap is returned to its original position. The procedure typically takes about 20 minutes.

Other Refractive Surgeries

Small Incision Linticule Extraction (SMILE)
Small Incision Linticule Extraction is the latest advancement in laser vision correction. SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure to treat myopia (near-sightedness), with or without astigmatism, providing LASIK-like outcomes. Learn More About SMILE

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
Photorefractive Keratectomy surgery was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction. Although PRK recovery time takes a bit longer than the recovery for LASIK, PRK is still commonly performed and offers advantages over LASIK for some patients. Learn More About PRK

Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)
Implantable Contact Lens surgery differs from LASIK and PRK because it does NOT alter the structure of the eye or involve corneal tissue removal. Rather, this surgery involves obtaining an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) specific to your prescription. Learn More About ICL
