The LASIK Center

The LASIK Center offers screening, consultation services, diagnostic procedures, and specialized therapeutic modalities (specifically laser refractive procedures) for refractive patients.

The LASIK Center caters to multiple refractive errors that can be corrected by laser surgery, addressing the following conditions:

  1. Myopia (Nearsightedness): up to -12 diopters*
  2. Hyperopia (Farsightedness): up to +6 diopters*
  3. Regular and Irregular Astigmatism: up to diopters*
  4. Presbyopia

(Note: the corresponding values with “*”mark was based on the US FDA approved treatment range for Wavelight® EX500 Excimer Laser)

In cases where the patient is not a good candidate for laser refractive surgery and/or refractive error is beyond the treatment range, the LASIK Center’s Core Team can opt either to perform lens-based refractive procedures such as Phakic Intraocular Lens Implantation or Refractive Lens Exchange, or facilitate referral to patient’s surgeon of choice.

If the patient screened did not qualify for any refractive surgical procedure based on the Center’s Clinical Practice Guidelines, patient is referred back to attending physician or treated for his/her particular condition.
