Are there Alternatives to LASIK®?

Not everyone is a candidate for LASIK®?

The doctors at Spinak Medical Eye Center are concerned with caring for your eyes in the best way possible. After a thorough eye exam, you may be told that you are not a candidate for LASIK® due to:

  • Prescription needed out of range – high levels of near or farsightedness

  • Dry eyes

  • Thin corneas

LASIK® Alternatives

The eye surgeons at Spinak Medical Eye Center will discuss with you various LASIK® alternatives including:

Visian Implant

  • Corrective lens implanted inside the eye. Sometimes the Visian implant is referred to as an implantable contact lens.

  • No maintenance or regular cleaning is required.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy)

  • Improves the eye’s natural focus.

  • Procedure involves removing a layer of epithelial cells and then shapes the surface of the cornea. In a PRK procedure, the outer cells grow back in a few days.

Premium Lenses

  • Implantable lens that reduces presbyopia and astigmatism.

  • Glasses may still be needed.

  • Available to patients with and without cataracts.
