Your LASIK Procedure Options

LASIK, a corneal reshaping surgical procedure, corrects vision by directing light onto the retina. The procedure involves creating a precise corneal flap with a laser, followed by sculpting the corneal tissue to address refractive errors.

Most TLC patients have the Custom Bladeless LASIK procedure. In the Bladeless LASIK procedure, the flap of the corneal tissue is created by using a computer-controlled laser. This laser allows for customization of the flap and accounts for the natural curvature of the cornea, creating a flap of uniform thickness. The bladeless LASIK technology eliminates the need for a hand-held microkeratome blade, create an ‘all laser’ procedure.

The Wavelight LASIK Laser

Wavelight lasers mark a leap forward in LASIK technology, employing wavefront-optimized technology. Unlike traditional LASIK, which focused on basic vision aspects, wavefront-optimized treatments aim to preserve corneal asphericity, reducing higher-order aberrations. This innovation enhances visual outcomes and minimizes visual symptoms after surgery

The Contoura Vision System

A procedure called Contoura Vision is also available at TLC. Developed by Alcon, the Contoura Vision system takes personalization to new heights. Contoura Vision is a topography-guided LASIK treatment designed to provide surgeons the ability to perform a more personalized laser procedure. Contoura Vision is suitable for people with nearsightedness with or without astigmatism. By integrating corneal topography and wavefront-guided technology, it creates a detailed 3D map of the eye. This precision enables the laser not only to correct refractive errors but also to address subtle corneal irregularities, resulting in improved visual outcomes, especially in challenging conditions.

For some people, a procedure called PRK may be a better option. Unlike LASIK, your surgeon doesn’t create a flap of corneal tissue. PRK eye surgery is our second most common procedure with long term visual results that are similar to LASIK eye surgery.

  • For 30 years I was afraid of eye surgery to correct my vision. And in an incredible 10 minutes, TLC fixed it to perfection! My only regret is not doing it sooner. Everything about TLC was great! The staff, the Doctor, the detail with which they performed the pre-surgery evaluation and exams, the state-of-art latest technology equipment, the efficiency of the whole process, the caring concern for each patient, the follow-ups, the availability of financing, and on and on. Everything about my experience was fantastic and I wholeheartedly recommend TLC in Fairfield, CT to anybody!

  • My wife has been contemplating Lasik for years and had previous consults with different facilities. Dr. Probst and his team did an amazing job. The consultation was educational and talked about the advanced technology that makes their practice different. The day of surgery went smoothly. Aftercare was simple, and they answered all of our last minute questions. We highly recommend TLC.
