LASIK

In keeping with our commitment to provide our patients with optimum care, Dr. Deborah Bernstein and her staff provide patients with the most up-to-date techniques and technology in laser vision correction, assuring the safest surgery with the highest degree of predictability and precision available today. By reducing and even eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses, LASIK and PRK surgeries have improved vision for millions of people.

LASIK, or Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis, involves using a laser to reshape the cornea to treat near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism, reducing the need for glasses and contact lenses. Using a combination of the IntraLase® femtosecond laser to create a precise corneal flap and CustomVue wavefront technology, we can offer 100% blade-free, precise, individualized treatment.

PRK, or Photorefractive Keratectomy, is similar to LASIK except that there is no corneal flap created. Instead the outermost layer of corneal tissue is removed prior to applying the laser to re-shape the cornea. Some patients are better suited for PRK over LASIK.
