With the invention of this innovative, cool-light laser and its rapid increase in popularity, laser vision correction procedures have literally changed the way people see the world.
Cherry Creek Eye Physicians and Surgeons offers the latest in laser vision correction techniques, from our most popular LASIK procedure, to the tried and true PRK technique, or the most modern technique, EpiLASIK.
In a procedure that takes only minutes, laser vision correction allows patients to improve their eyesight and enjoy natural vision without the use of glasses or contacts. Vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can be effectively eliminated in the blink of an eye.
Why is LASIK the most popular laser vision correction procedure? LASIK is renowned for its high success rate, rapid visual recovery, and minimal post-operative discomfort.
With today’s technology, patients can now choose Custom LASIK for highly personalized vision correction. Depending on their unique vision characteristics, however, Denver Lasik surgeon Dr. Lewis may determine that PRK, EpiLASIK, or one of the other vision correction procedures would give optimum visual results or better fit a patient’s refractive needs.
During laser vision correction, the surgeon uses the excimer laser to gently reshape the cornea, eliminating your refractive error. Whether a patient’s cornea that is too steep, too flat, or oddly shaped, LASIK, EpiLASIK, CK or PRK has afforded millions of people worldwide the advantage of great vision.
