What is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is a type of laser refractive surgery that treats nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. Each of these is a type of refractive error caused by misshapen corneas. If the cornea is not properly shaped, light rays cannot properly focus on the retina in the back of the eye. During the LASIK surgery procedure, an excimer laser will be used to carefully reshape the cornea and restore clear vision.

Additional Laser Surgery Options

Although LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery in the United States, there are other types of laser treatments, including:


PRK is an alternative treatment for patients who are not LASIK candidates. Like LASIK surgery, PRK is used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The main difference between these procedures is that a thin layer of the cornea is removed during the PRK procedure. During LASIK surgery, a corneal flap is created but the cornea is left intact.


An implantable collamer lens is an artificial lens that helps to correct refractive errors in the eye. This lens is a more permanent version of a contact lens. Implanted in front of the eye’s natural lens and behind the iris, there is no need to worry about when to take the lens out. This permanent option allows for long-term correction of refractive errors. ICLs are a common alternative for laser procedures and do not require any tissue removal.

Laser Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clump of protein that builds up on the eye’s lens, creating cloudy or blurry vision. Laser cataract surgery in Vienna, VA is one of the best options for cataract removal because it offers precision and accuracy. A 3D map of the eye will be created to accurately map out the perimeter of the cataract and then the laser is used to break it up for easier removal. Once the cloudy lens is removed, an intraocular lens (IOL) will be inserted as a replacement for the affected lens.

  • Pterygium: fleshy growths caused by excess sun exposure
  • Keratitis: inflammation of the cornea
  • Fuch’s Dystrophy: fluid buildup resulting in corneal swelling and blindness

Retina Problems

Ptosis is a condition that develops when the muscles in the upper eyelid are weakened, resulting in upper eyelid drooping. Ptosis surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed to lift the upper eyelid and improve vision. Blepharoplasty can also be performed on the lower eyelids to address heavy undereye bags, sagging skin, and droopiness.


Glaucoma is an eye disease resulting from blocked eye drainage and a buildup of fluid. As fluid levels increase, intraocular pressure inside the eye increases which puts pressure on the optic nerves. Glaucoma can be treated with prescription eye drops and potentially with specialized kinds of laser surgery.
