LASIK Surgery

LASIK Surgery, Kildeer & Elgin, IL 

LASIK vision correction can help improve your vision and reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. At Quality Eye Care Clinic, we offer LASIK surgery in Kildeer and Elgin, Illinois using the latest technology and techniques. 

What is LASIK surgery? 

LASIK stands for Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. It’s a surgical procedure that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, which is the front part of the eye. By changing the cornea’s shape, LASIK can correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. 

Before LASIK surgery 

Our eye care professionals will thoroughly evaluate your eyes to determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK. If you are, we’ll provide you with detailed information about the procedure, including what to expect before, during, and after the surgery. 

While LASIK is a safe and effective procedure for most patients, it’s not suitable for everyone. We’ll help you understand the risks and benefits of the procedure and whether it’s the best choice for your needs. 

What to expect during LASIK surgery 

During the procedure, we’ll use anesthetic eye drops to numb your eyes and use a special device to hold your eyes open. We’ll ask you to focus on a flashing light while the laser reshapes your cornea. This results in clearer vision without glasses or contact lenses. LASIK is a quick and painless procedure that typically takes only a few minutes to complete, and most patients experience little to no discomfort. We use the latest technology and techniques to ensure a safe and effective procedure.  

Alternatives to LASIK 

SMILE and ICL are great alternatives to traditional LASIK surgery. Both procedures are minimally invasive, making them a viable option for anyone who isn’t an ideal candidate for LASIK. 

SMILE Laser Vision Correction 

SMILE, which stands for small incision lenticule extraction, is an incredibly advanced laser vision correction procedure for people with myopia (or nearsightedness). It offers LASIK-like results but in a minimally invasive procedure that’s bladeless and flapless. 

ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) 

ICL (implantable collamer lens) provides sharper and clearer vision than most other forms of vision correction. The procedure offers excellent results without altering the shape of the cornea. While traditional contact lenses fit on the surface of the eye, ICLs are surgically placed within the eye. They are positioned between the iris (which is the colored part of the eye) and the eye’s natural lens. These lenses are designed to permanently correct vision but can be replaced if your eyes change later.
