WINTER IS LASIK SEASON By Dr. Lisa Bennett, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
Winter in Wisconsin leaves us dreaming of our favorite summer activities that seem so far away: enjoying our lakes and pools, blasting out on that Harley, biking the Interurban trail and much more. While you cannot make winter disappear, there is something you can do now to enhance your summer fun – improve your outlook on life with LASIK Vision Correction! Winter is always our busiest time for LASIK because this is a procedure for active people, not couch potatoes. Most prefer to take advantage of this down time to finally get free of their contacts and glasses.
We now exclusively utilize the all-laser Wavelight blade-free LASIK system. They are the fastest lasers available in the US for refractive surgery and the most precise. The first laser, that makes the tiny flap on the surface of the eye, takes only 6 seconds. The second laser, that contours the shape of your eyes to improve your vision, is also 50% quicker that the older technologies. This means less time you need to stay still under the laser and quicker healing. The improvement in vision, especially for those with more extreme prescriptions, is quite evident.
Patients love the improved comfort and potential to see even better than they did with glasses or contacts. I appreciate the precise automation with the smallest laser spot size in the industry and fastest eye tracking system available: 20 times faster than natural eye movements!
Don’t just dream of summer, have LASIK now so when it does arrive you will be ready to fully embrace it. Get started by calling for your complementary LASIK screening exam today to determine if LASIK is for you.
