The #LASIK procedure allows our doctors to make changes to the shape of a patient’s cornea using a computer-controlled excimer laser. #LASIKsurgery can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is a highly effective and safe procedure that has helped many of our patients enjoy clear, dependable vision. #Ophthalmologist #Ophthalmology

Patients who suffer from presbyopia, those with high degrees of hyperopia or myopia, patients with cataracts, or those with certain irregularities of the eye may not be suitable candidates for #LASIK. Fortunately, #intraocularlenses(#IOLs) offer an effective alternative treatment. #VisionCorrection

People who are ineligible for traditional #LASIK because their corneas are too thin may be good candidates for #Intralase LASIK. Intralase LASIK is also associated with fewer complications than traditional LASIK because a laser is used to create the corneal flap, rather than a blade. The outer layer of the cornea experiences no trauma, and the procedure is painless. #laservisioncorrection

#DidYouKnow #Keratoconus is a relatively common condition, in our practice in which the cornea becomes thin and protrudes. Keratoconus literally means a cone-shaped cornea. This abnormal shape can cause serious distortion of vision. #Ophthalmologist

#Phakicintraocularlenses  are designed to correct extreme cases of nearsightedness. They are especially beneficial for patients who have been ruled out as #LASIK candidates because of especially thin corneas, dry eyes, or oversized pupils. #ophthalmologist

At Chicago Cornea Consultants, a leading Chicago laser eye surgery center, we employ only the best doctors and use the most advanced laser technology to help our patients avoid LASIK risks. Still, we believe it is important for patients to be aware of all possible complications from LASIK before agreeing to undergo the procedure.
