L.A.S.I.K. (Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis)


WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?

An ideal Candidate for surgery is someone who is at least 18 years of age, and has healthy eyes and adequate corneal tissue. Candidates must not have any significant changes in their prescription within the last 24 months. Some patients with certain medical conditions or women who are pregnant may not be good candidates at the time. Your doctor will assess your eye health, and history, and visual goals to determine if you meet all the criteria.


  1. Initial eye exam and evaluation appointed at ourOptometry office.

  2. A visit to the surgery clinic is scheduled where Orbscans will be taken to determine corneal integrity and thickness.

  3. One more visit to our Optometry office to answer remaining questions, and then if you are ready, schedule surgery.

  4. The curvature of our corneas are 60% responsible for how light will focus once light passes through our cornea. Our goal is to have our cornea focus light onto our retina. The shape of the cornea can be changed with an excimer laser. No laser or instrument will actually penetrate into the eye globe itself. It is completely a surface procedure, which is why it heals so fast.

  5. Steps:

    • A thin corneal flap is created with a INTRALASE that is about 160 microns thick.
    • The flap is lifted back to expose the tissue underneath by the surgeon.
    • The laser is applied on the tissue for a short amount of time determined by your prescription.
    • The flap is smoothed back over
    • The procedure takes less than 15 minutes for both eyes.

  6. Post-op visits for a year to ensure that everything is healing well and that vision is good.

L.A.S.I.K. Consulting

We do consulting with one of the most networked Lasik companies in the area and have helped many people achieve their expected outcomes. We do not do the Lasik procedure onsite, but instead we help determine if Lasik is right for someone and then manage their after care.

To have a successful outcome, a person must know why they are getting LASIK and how they are going to get it, and that is where the management begins. The procedure itself only takes 30 seconds of Laser time per eye (approx for a -2.00 D prescription). Please take advantage of our consultation with our Optometrist. Dr. Han's purpose is to help inform his patients on their options, regardless if he will be participating in the post operative care or not. Please let us know when making an consultation appointment only (no testing involved) versus eye exam appointment (tests involved). It would only take about 15 minutes to talk about Lasik.
