LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK Alternatives

Unfortunately, LASIK is not appropriate for all patients. Thankfully, we offer a range of alternatives to LASIK for patients for whom the procedure is not ideal. LASIK alternatives include: PRK laser vision correction, Implantable Collamer lens (ICL) or Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE).

PRK is a procedure which uses the same excimer laser to achieve the same excellent vision and, for some, it is safer than LASIK. There are many patients who have been told they could not have LASIK because their corneas are too thin or their eyeglass prescription are too high.  With PRK, they may be able to safely have their vision corrected.

For patients who cannot safely have LASIK or PRK procedures, an Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) is an outpatient surgical procedure that provides excellent quality of vision.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is an alternative to LASIK that replaces the eye’s natural lens with a permanent man-made lens to help improve vision.  For patients with severe farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism, this procedure can help improve sight.
