LASIK Surgery is a common form of vision correction laser eye surgery to help patients who are farsighted, nearsighted or who have astigmatism. This quick, effective procedure reshapes the cornea, which is the surface of the eye, helping you to more clearly focus on what you see. During LASIK surgery, the cornea at the front of the eye is reshaped so that light can properly focus on the retina at the back of the eye, thus improving vision. LASIK eye surgery could improve your vision so much you won’t need contacts or glasses anymore!
LASIK permanently reshapes the cornea so that light focuses correctly. Dr. Manocha uses a femtosecond laser to create a flap in the surface of the cornea and then uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea. Finally, the flap is replaced so the cornea can heal. The LASIK procedure takes approximately 15 minutes for each eye and causes little or no discomfort. Call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Manocha for LASIK eye surgery today. (912) 354-4800.

Dr. Mark Manocha implements LASIK using state-of-the-art Wavelight Excimer and Femtosecond Laser technology. This is the first equipment suite designed exclusively for use in LASIK vision correction surgery. With the advanced technology equipment, Dr. Manocha will be able to adapt surgical treatment to get reliable outcomes and a more predictable, precise procedure each and every time. With the development of the Wavelight Excimer Femtosecond Laser, LASIK surgery took an enormous leap forward while maintaining the fast, accurate and safe procedure.
LASIK eye surgery is a quick two-step procedure, often being completed within 5-15 minutes. First, the Wavelight Femtosecond Laser makes a thin flap across the cornea’s surface. Then, the flap is delicately lifted so that the surgeon can reshape the cornea, allowing for the proper focusing of light on the retina. With LASIK surgery, the flap can be made and customized to each patient in mere seconds. A flap incised with the Wavelight Excimer Femtosecond Laser heals more securely that those made with a traditional surgical blade resulting in a stronger, more injury-resistant flap.
LASIK (pronounced ‘LAY-sik’) surgery generally has a remarkably quick healing period. Advanced laser technology makes LASIK fast and often painless. Vision begins to improve soon after the laser eye surgery, and may become stable within weeks. Patients typically report blurred or hazy vision on the first day following the procedure.
The results of LASIK eye surgery depends on the pre-surgery condition but, most patients report improved vision without the need of contacts or eyeglasses. Contact us today for your consultation!
