The most effective way to determine if you are considered a good candidate for LASIK is by having Dr. Krulewski perform a thorough eye exam. Some of the guidelines that make a person eligible for LASIK surgery include the following:
Our All-Laser LASIK procedure uses the latest laser technology, rather than a surgical blade (used in traditional LASIK), to create a flap in the cornea during the surgery. The preferred LASIK procedure of leading ophthalmologists, All-Laser LASIK has many benefits, including:
Dr. Krulewski performs the All-Laser LASIK procedure as an outpatient surgery. Because you will not be able to drive afterward, you will need to make arrangements for someone to drive you to and from our surgery center. To ensure that you are comfortable, anesthetic eye drops will be used to numb your eyes. Once they are numb, Dr. Krulewski will use an excimer laser to make a small incision in the cornea, or the thin top layer of the eye’s surface, making a flap which he will pull back to reveal the cornea. A femtosecond laser is then used to reshape the cornea to a shape that better refracts light from the retina, resulting in clearer vision. The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes or less to finish, and afterwards there is almost no downtime. Patients’ eyes may feel dry and slightly irritated for a day or two, but they are typically able to return to work, school and daily life the day after surgery.
