What Is Advanced Surface Ablation?
Advanced surface ablation is an FDA-approved laser vision correction procedure that treats the surface of the cornea. It does not require a flap creation like LASIK. Instead, it simply removes the epithelium cells (surface cells) to expose the secondary layer that is reshaped to adjust the focus of your eye. The curvature of the cornea will be adjusted in a certain way depending on which vision problem you are suffering from;nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
Our surgeons then use an Alcon Wavelight EX500 Excimer Laser to gently reshape the cornea and correct the refractive error.
We provide custom-compounded preservative-free prescription drops to each patient, ensuring only the highest quality medication throughout your post-operative care.
