LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is a refractive procedure that uses a special ultraviolet laser called an excimer laser to correct a person’s vision. This particular method of laser eye surgery reshapes the cornea, the clear front “window” of the eye, so that light focuses precisely on the back portion of the eye called the retina. LASIK is used as a vision correction procedure for refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
When it comes to your vision, experience matters. Price Vision Group is proud to be the first in Indiana to perform laser vision correction back in 1995 and continue to be at the forefront of new technology by being the first in Indiana to perform topography-guided custom LASIK with CONTOURA® Vision. Our practice helped write the guidelines on LASIK for the American Academy of Ophthalmology and we are routinely referred high difficulty surgery cases based on our extensive experience and expertise.
The board-certified LASIK surgeons at Price Vision Group are two of the world’s leading authorities on ophthalmology. Both Dr. Francis Price, Jr. and Dr. Matthew Feng are fellowship-trained cornea specialists that have extensive, specialized training focused on the cornea and frontal structures of the eye so they have a better understanding of the nuisances of your eye and how it responds to treatments. Both doctors have combined to train over 600 doctors from 35 different countries on advanced surgical techniques.
Price Vision Group uses the most advanced LASIK technology to ensure the safest, most precise vision correction procedures. The surgeons at Price Vision Group perform their laser eye procedures with the WaveLight® Refractive Suite that includes the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser in combination with the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser.
A number of our patients have said having LASIK is one of the best decisions they have ever made, and the results of a recent 1,800 person 3-year longitudinal study we led help show why.
Having LASIK means something different for each unique patient. For some patients, it means freedom from the hassle of dealing with contacts and glasses, especially since many activities, such as swimming, do not work well with either glasses or contacts. For other patients with high amounts of astigmatism who have to repeatedly buy expensive contacts, it means a huge lifetime monetary savings. For many others, it’s just a way to help them look and see their best.
