LASIK Surgical Vison Correction
iLasik Procedure

Paula Hearld

I had contemplated the LASIK procedure for quite a while before I approached Dr. Peterson. Because I wore hard contact lenses for over 20 years, Dr. Peterson warned me that I might have a 6-12 month waiting period because my eyes needed to return to their original state before LASIK.

LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an option for vision correction without needing to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.

Recently, other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.
