LASIK eye surgery is a refractive surgery that uses the assistance of lasers. The lasers produce small incisions along the edge of cornea to flatten it and change the shape. "LASIK" is an anagram for "Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis." There are 4 surgeons John Oltean, D.O., Kenneth Otto, M.D., Timothy Barron, M.D., and Lee Webster, M.D. in Muskegon that perform LASIK. All 4 surgeons are ophthalmologists at Shoreline Vision and perform LASIK at the only Ambulatory Surgery Center dedicated to eyes in Muskegon and the Tri-Cities.
The lens or crystalline lens is a transparent, biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea, helps to refract light to focus on the retina. Its function in similar to a man-made optical lens.
Luxation and subluxation of the lens is dislocation of the lens. The lens of the eye is held in place by a meshwork of microscopic fibers, or zonules. These fibers may be weakened or absent from disease, or damaged by injury. If there is loss of support, the lens may shift in position or become dislocated. This condition may require surgery if the lens becomes too unstable.
A Blade-free Laser is the newest technological breakthrough and available for use in cataract surgery. The LenSx femtosecond laser offers a number of advantages compared to standard cataract surgery. For unparalleled precision, the LenSx laser pulses in femtoseconds which are one quadrillionth of a second. * Allows for the correction of low to moderate amounts of astigmatism with the accuracy of a computer-controlled laser. This is an important part of optimizing vision. * Provides greater surgical precision, particularly for some of the most challenging parts of cataract surgery. * Eliminates the need for blades and needles for corneal incisions and the anterior capsulotomy. * Allows your doctor to customize a treatment plan for optimizing your vision to meet your lifestyle and visual goals.
