Like PRK, #LASIK begins with a computerized mapping of the eye's surface. Once the map is complete and the excimer laser is calibrated, anesthetic drops are applied to the eye and a device known as a microkeratome is used to create a thin flap on the surface of the cornea. This flap is gently folded back so the laser can be applied to the corneal tissue. The flap is then replaced over the cornea and naturally seals itself in place. #LaJollaOptometrist

Developed in 1990, LASIK, or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a laser eye surgery technique that involves reshaping the inner layers of the cornea while leaving the surface layer relatively undisturbed. #LASIK #EyeSurgery

During your exam, your #Doctor will use several examples of the latest diagnostic equipment. An example of one is the Visual Field Analyzer – This machine flashes a series of lights at your eyes, and you indicate to the #Doctor each time you see a light. This helps the doctor determine the ability of your retinas to see stimuli in different points of your visual field. #Optometrist #Ophthalmologist

The #ClearLensExtraction procedure removes your eye’s natural lens and replaces it with an artificial one that corrects your vision. The procedure is simple and virtually painless, and allows more patients the ability to experience vastly improved vision. #Optometrist #LaserEyeSurgery

A variety of factors can cause dry eyes. For many patients, the problem develops as they age. Over time, wearing contact lenses can also result in #DryEye. Certain medications, medical conditions, and environmental factors can all cause dry eye. #Optometrist #Ophthalmologist

#ClearLensExtractions, also known as refractive lens exchange, is an advanced vision correction surgical procedure that is designed to minimize your need for corrective lenses such as #glasses or #contacts. The procedure is generally well-suited to patients over the age of 40 who are dependent on optical accessories for clear vision. #Optometrist #Ophthalmologist #EyeSurgery

For patients who wear or wish to wear contact lenses, a lens fitting procedure must be performed in addition to the routine eye exam. A lens fitting involves taking special measurements to ensure that the diameter, curvature, and refractive correction of your contact lenses are right for your eyes. #Optometrist #Ophthalmologist

Comprehensive eye exams involve assessing a patient's vision, as well as evaluating their internal and external ocular health. This includes testing for glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal abnormalities. Your #Ophthalmologist also check pupil reflex, color vision, peripheral vision, and depth perception.

Often referred to as a "lunchtime" procedure, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be masterfully injected into your skin within a matter of minutes. The procedure doesn't require anesthesia, and patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment. #BOTOX #Ophthalmologist #EyeSurgery
