Make it your time for LASIK
Experience the many benefits of LASIK at Spectrum Lasik. 

The LASIK Procedure

If you are have nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), presbyopia (age-related near-vision loss) or astigmatism,
then you are likely a candidate for Lasik. At Spectrum Lasik your Lasik will be performed by highly skilled and experienced surgeons using the most advanced lasers and equipment. Our lasers are precisely calibrated and never move from our location, unlike at other centers. With Spectrum Lasik, you are assured the very best visual outcomes. 

The Spectrum Lasik Process

  1. You receive a complimentary examination by one of our LASIK trained doctors with detailed information about the LASIK investment.
  2. If you wish to proceed with LASIK or Laser Vision Correction (LVC), then a preoperative examination will follow.
  3. Before your procedure, you'll be given some numbing drops and medication so you won't feel any discomfort.
  4. Our surgeon uses the FS200 femtosecond laser to make a thin flap in your cornea at the appropriate treatment site.
  5. A second laser, the WaveLight Eye-Q laser delivers a customized correction to your cornea based on your unique vision/eye characteristics.
  6. Then, the protective flap is folded back in place where it bonds securely without the need for stitches.
  7. The actual process takes about 15-20 minutes all together. It's safe, fast, comfortable and promptly, you will have improved vision without glasses or contacts*. After LASIK, some patients report a slight discomfort that usually goes away within twelve to twenty-four hours.
  8. If our doctors recommend the Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) treatment, no corneal flap is created, but rather the corneal surface epithelial cells are removed and a customized treatment is applied. The corneal surface heals over in a few days with a temporary bandage contact lens and vision improves steadily over a few weeks.

Bladefree Lasik

At Spectrum Lasik, the Bladefree Method provides a less invasive computer-controlled approach to the important first step of Laser Vision Correction. It is a 100% blade-free approach to creating your LASIK flap — the thin flap of tissue that the surgeon creates to perform your customized procedure.

Traditionally, the first step of Laser Vision Correction has been performed with a surgical blade. Today the procedure has been enriched at Spectrum Lasik with micron level accuracy, making every procedure more predictable. Our Femtosecond laser separates microscopic layers of corneal tissue to create a flap which is lifted up to expose the inner corneal tissue for laser correction. Studies have shown Femtosecond technology to be 100 times more accurate than a traditional bladed LASIK with a significantly increased safety profile. Bladefree LASIK is one of the safest forms of surgical vision correction today.

State of the Art Technology

Tiny pulses of laser light, a quadrillionth of a second each, pass harmlessly through the outer portion of your cornea and form a uniform layer of microscopic bubbles just beneath the surface of your eye. The flap creation process takes about less than 15 seconds per eye and a total of 10-15 minutes for the entire LASIK procedure. When it’s time for your LASIK treatment to be performed, Dr. Parisi easily lifts the flap to apply the LASIK treatment.

Exceptional Results

More patients prefer their vision and see better after blade-free LASIK than with previous methods. Femtosecond technology benefits you by being a safer procedure with predictably better vision at follow up exams. Millions of blade-free LASIK  procedures have been performed safely and effectively with outstanding results.

An Individualized Treatment

At Spectrum Lasik, we appreciate that your vision is unique. It is as personal as your fingerprint or DNA. For many patients there are numerous reasons for poor vision. In a single eye there may be a number of visual imperfections and these imperfections are called aberrations. These aberrations are classified as higher-order aberrations and lower-order aberrations. In the past your ophthalmologist or optometrist was only able to correct lower-order aberrations such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), presbyopia (age-related near-vision loss) and astigmatism. These lower order aberrations can be corrected with glasses, contacts, or conventional LASIK. However, higher order aberrations cannot be corrected with glasses, contacts or even with traditional LASIK Surgery.
