LASIK Surgery Near Washington Township, NJ
Dr. Tyson Offers The Most Advanced LASIK Surgery in the Area
LASIK is an acronym for laser in-situ keratomileusis.
In simple terms it’s an effective version of laser eye surgery which has stood the test of time.
It has been performed by doctors across the globe on patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.
But how does it work?
Well, the surgeon in question reshapes the cornea so light can be better reflected on the back of the eye.
Remarkably this helps some patients receive 20/20 vision, but at the very least guarantees driving standard vision without the need for glasses!
This is an amazing prospect for those who have relied heavily on glasses for their entire life.
LASIK surgery has been transforming the lives of millions since it was introduced 20 years ago.
Technology has improved dramatically since then, enabling a procedure patients can embrace with confidence.

– In the aftermath rest your eyes suitably, avoiding television, radio and mobile
Common Terms You Might Hear When Researching LASIK Surgery

It might however bring peace of mind if you know some of the more technical language which will be used both before and after your surgery. Reassurance is everything before a procedure of this nature.
ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser Ablation)
PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy)
LASIK – ‘laser in-situ keratomileusis’
Laser Eye Surgery Procedures Offered for Washington Township Patients
The first in its kind, PRK was a revolutionary eye surgery at its inception. Though technology has advanced since, PRK is still used to this day.
It does take patients longer to recover, but that doesn’t mean it’s ineffective.
PRK relies on completely removing a thin layer on the outer surface of the cornea.
This differs from LASIK which involves creating a flap instead.
When a thin layer is removed from the cornea it naturally repairs itself over time.
This method doesn’t rely on a blade at all.
Surgeons use a laser to create a thin flap, utilizing a method not dissimilar from the IntraLase method.
What’s great about bladeless is there’s even less risk involved.
IntraLase Blade-Free LASIK Surgery
This was the first bladeless method to receive FDA approval.
It was introduced in 1999 and later acquired by Advanced Medical Optics (AMO).
IntraLase is now marketed as iLASIK with the CustomVue excimer laser platform.
Doctors can tailor the flap created based on the patient’s needs, capitalizing on a customized approach which more efficiently attends to individual needs.
Bladeless corrective surgery is proven to improve the chances of achieving 20/20 vision.
iDESIGN Wavescan System
The first refractive studio topo-integrated with wavefront-guided technology.
Doctors can personalize treatment based on individual needs and requirements. This results in a better diagnosis and improved workflow.
The quality of treatment improves dramatically because better measurements can be made.
Wavefront analysis is used to map the entire optical pathway, while the entire surface of the cornea is mapped with corneal topography.
