LASIK – (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is an outpatient procedure suitable for most patients with low, moderate and some higher prescriptions. LASIK uses a cool beam of light from the excimer laser to gently reshape the front surface (cornea) of the eye.
ICL – an Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) is suitable for patients with higher prescriptions including those who have been told they were not a candidate for LASIK. The procedure is similar to cataract surgery except the ICL is placed in front of the natural crystalline lens whereas in cataract surgery the natural crystalline lens is removed and an intraocular lens (IOL) takes its place.
CRT – (Corneal Refractive Therapy) is a form of orthokeratology which uses specially designed rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses to re-shape your cornea while you sleep. This is a non-permanent, non-surgical alternative. It is great for patients too young for surgery and for those who are fearful of surgery.
