LASIK Safety

Our LASIK is the safest available

At L.O. Eye Care, we offer the best LASIK technology available. Today, the best consists of LASIK using the CustomVue and IntraLase technologies.

We don't ask you to bargain with your eyesight. We only offer the best.

What is CustomVue?

CustomVue treatments are sometimes referred to as "custom LASIK" or "wavefront LASIK." CustomVue treatments use special technology to:

  • Measure imperfections in your eye 25 times more precisely than standard methods
  • Produce a detailed map of your eye – as unique as your fingerprint
  • Generate digital information which is transferred directly to the laser used in your procedure, to provide a new level of precision and accuracy.
  • More information on CustomVue

How much safer is the IntraLase laser?

Though LASIK complications are rare, many of those reported were the result of the hand-held blade used in the first step of the procedure. By replacing the blade with an IntraLase laser, L.O. Eye Care has the safest LASIK available.

Specifically, the IntraLase laser delivers micron-level accuracy 100 percent greater than a blade for more accurate and consistent flap thickness – factors critical for a successful LASIK outcome. More information on IntraLase technology.

The precision of our blade-free technology (IntraLase) significantly reduces the incidence of post-operative induced astigmatism as compared with a blade-created flap.

In one FDA clinical study for the treatment of specific nearsightedness, 98% of CustomVue patients had 20/20 vision or better. Individual results may vary.

Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) can only be performed by a trained physician and is specified for reduction or elimination of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism as indicated within the product labeling. Laser refractive surgery may be contraindicated for patients: a) with collagen vascular, autoimmune, or immunodeficiency diseases; b) who are pregnant or nursing women; c) with signs of keratoconus or abnormal corneal topography; d) who are taking one or both of the following medications: Isotretinoin (Accutane) and Amiodarone hydrochloride (Cordarone). Potential side effects to laser refractive surgery may include glare, dry eye, as well as other visual anomalies. LASIK requires the use of a laser or microkeratome that cuts a flap on the surface of the cornea, potential side effects may include flap-related complications. Consult with your eye care professional and Patient Information Booklet regarding the potential risks and benefits for laser refractive surgery; results may vary for each individual patient.
