LASIK Eye Surgery Pre-Operative Examination
When you have LASIK in Honolulu, HI, the pre-operative examinations are every bit as important as the surgery itself. During this exam, Dr. Olkowski will gather all of the measurements he needs for your actual surgery. He will measure your corneal thickness and he will dilate the pupils to examine your retina.
EyeSight Hawaii also uses VISX WaveScan measurements before every LASIK procedure. The breakthrough VISX WaveScan maps your entire visual system, to create an advanced “fingerprint of your vision.”
You are probably familiar with the question “Which is better, 1 or 2?” during a standard eye exam. However, you may often be unsure if you are giving the correct answer. The WaveScan system helps to do away with this uncertainty, by generating an extremely accurate and objective measurement of your vision. This can mean better results from your LASIK in Honolulu, HI.
LASIK Eye Surgery and iLASIK
iLASIK combines IntraLase technology with the Advanced CustomVue procedure, for a treatment of unprecedented accuracy and effectiveness.
LASIK surgery first involves folding back a thin layer of the surface of the cornea (the front surface of the eye). Then, the VISX Star S4 IR excimer laser is used to gently and precisely reshape the remaining cornea.
EyeSight Hawaii uses the most advanced, blade-free IntraLase Method to create the corneal flap. Ultra–fast pulses of laser light position microscopic bubbles at a precise depth determined by Dr. Olkowski. During your surgery for LASIK in Honolulu, HI, Dr. Olkowski moves the light back and forth across your eye in a uniform plane, to create rows of bubbles just beneath your corneal surface. To create the edges of your flap, he then stacks bubbles around your corneal diameter at a precise angle that is customized to the shape of your eye.
For the vision correction portion of the surgery, EyeSight Hawaii uses the VISX Star S4 IR excimer laser, which has the only FDA-approved 3-Dimensional tracking system. So there is no need to worry if your eye moves, because the laser will follow. After the laser treatment, the thin corneal flap is put back into place.
LASIK Post-Operative Examinations
Your post-operative exams for LASIK in Honolulu, HI, are extremely important. During these exams, we can evaluate how your eyes are healing after your LASIK laser eye surgery. If you ever have any concerns with your LASIK, we are more than happy to take a look at your eyes at any time.
