LASIK

Greensboro, High Point, Thomasville, Winston, Salem, North Carolina

All about LASIK

LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery in the United States. This is largely due to the fact that LASIK is safe, painless, and effective.

To perform LASIK, Dr. Stonecipher, will need to make a small flap in your cornea. This can be done with a special surgical laser. The technique used will depend on your unique needs and be determined by Dr.  Stonecipher during your initial consultation.

Once the flap has been created, Dr. Stonecipher will use an eximer laser to gently reshape your cornea. This allows your cornea to better reflect light onto your retina, resulting in unobstructed vision. LASIK is effective at treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but may not be ideal for everyone. Good LASIK candidates will need to have sufficient corneal thickness to support the flap, and be free of certain eye diseases and conditions. If you are not a good candidate for this procedure, Dr. Stonecipher will discuss alternatives based on your vision correction needs.
