Welcome to the best laser eye surgeon & lasik surgery center in Los Angeles CA: CCRS Clearvision
Laser eye surgery in Los Angeles has become a well-accepted and commonly performed eye surgery to correct vision problems that require glasses or contact lenses. LASIK or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis is a laser eye surgery in which a laser is used to change the shape of the cornea. For a person to see clearly, the cornea must focus or refract the incoming light on the retina located at the back of the eye. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are conditions in which the shape of a person's cornea does not allow this proper focusing to occur. During LASIK procedure, the laser is used to sculpt and remodel the cornea to the appropriate dimensions by either decreasing or increasing the curvature of the cornea and shaping it into a sphere.
LASIK evolved from keratomileusis surgery which was pioneered by Jose Barraquer in the 1950's. In keratomileusis, a surgeon changed the shape of the cornea manually with a device called microkeratome. Microkeratome incorporated a blade that allowed removal of corneal tissue of various thickness. More advanced models of microkeratome are still used to create the LASIK flap in bladed LASIK. However, with the advent of a femtosecond laser, bladeless LASIK is performed in most surgery centers.
In numerous eye surgery research studies, LASIK has shown to be one of the safest and effective ways to regain your normal sight. For most patients, LASIK is recommended over PRK, as LASIK allows a faster recovery, greater comfort and higher predictability of the outcome. While LASIK laser eye surgery has very few negative factors, you should be well informed about the possibility of glare and halos, dry eyes, and change in vision. Following LASIK surgery, you’ll notice the result within 24 hours. Most patients attain their best possible and the clearest vision after LASIK eye surgery. However, there can be a significant individual variability during recovery. At the top LASIK surgery centers, the success and patient satisfaction rate are very high.
