LASIK ALTERNATIVES

PRK

PRKLaser treatment without cutting the flap. Although initially there were some safety concerns this technique has improved significantly.

LASEK

LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) is a relatively new procedure that is technically a variation of PRK. Also called epithelial LASIK or E-LASIK, LASEK is used mostly for people with corneas that are too thin or too flat for LASIK. It was developed to reduce the chance of complications that occur when the flap created during LASIK is not the ideal thickness or diameter.

INTRALASE

INTRALASE

The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free technique used to perform the critical first step in the LASIK procedure: creating the corneal flap. The creation of the corneal flap prepares the eye for the second step of the LASIK procedure, where an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision.

ORBSCAN

The Orbscan is a very special test that helps the doctors at ICON determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. It is the only test that can show us the shape of the posterior surface of your cornea.
