Refractive surgery procedures with iLASIK
The latest advancement in LASIK treatment is iLASIK™, a customized all-laser procedure that combines two of the most up-to-date technologies available for maximum results and safety. And iLASIK is only available in the Cedar Falls-Waterloo area at Cedar Valley Eye Care!
For patients with myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, LASIK procedures offer a method for correcting these conditions through a type of surgery known as refractive surgery, which focuses on correcting sight deficiencies and reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses. Most forms of LASIK surgery use laser pluses that are directly applied to the front surface of the eye.
Drs. Puk, Miller, and Petrie at Cedar Valley Eye Care pride themselves in offering their patients current refractive surgery procedures that are innovative, effective, and FDA-approved. iLASIK combines intralase flap technology and customized wavefront treatment for advanced treatments aimed at achieving the best possible outcomes. Since the late 1990s, Cedar Valley Eye Care has performed thousands of successful LASIK corrective surgeries in Iowa, primarily in the Waterloo, Cedar Falls and surrounding areas.
In the past, LASIK surgery used laser pulses that were directly applied to the front surface of the eye. With the progression of technology, it was discovered that using the corrective laser under a thin layer of tissue lifted from the cornea, healing time was reduced, and discomfort was greatly decreased.
Instead of mechanical instruments, iLASIK offers greater safety due to the precision and predictability of using the laser for flap creation. This increased degree of control over flap thickness makes it possible for patients who previously were not candidates for LASIK to now have the procedure using iLASIK technology. And with iLASIK’s eye-tracking technology to trace the contours of the patient’s eyes, you can experience a refractive sight modification treatment that is individualized for you.
Cedar Valley Eye Care is the only local provider of iLASIK, the vision correction procedure that uses advanced laser technology to fit to your eyes’ contours for a safer, more customized treatment.
