Blade-Free LASIK Vision Correction

TOO BUSY FOR LASIK? By Dr. Lisa Bennett, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

Life is hectic, we get that.  But if you are thinking that you are too busy to have LASIK vision correction, think again.  Maybe you are too busy NOT to have LASIK!  This painless procedure takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish.  That’s less time than you spend dealing with your contact lenses in a single week.

Although you are in the laser suite for a total of 20 minutes, each laser runs for just a fraction of that time. In fact, the first laser takes just 6 seconds per eye.  That’s all the time it needs to place tiny air bubbles just under the surface of your eye creating a small corneal cap.  A second laser then changes the shape of the eye in about 15 to 30 seconds per eye. The result is great vision without glasses or contacts.

Following your quick procedure, you are sent home for a nice nap and awaken that same day to greatly improved vision. The very next morning you are greeted with an even better view on life. We recommend that you take both the day of the procedure and the day after the procedure off from work and your regular activities.  Generally most people see pretty well that next day so it becomes a free day, allowing you time to enjoy your new vision.

Let us help simplify your life with LASIK vision correction. To get started, call for your complimentary screening exam to see if this remarkable procedure is an option for you. We get to know you and your eyes; and take the time to explain that LASIK is not the same everywhere you go. You only want to have the procedure once so choose wisely.  Select a local doctor you can trust and one who uses the most precise, current and safest LASIK technology available.

Dr. Lisa Bennett is an Ophthalmologist (Eye Physician & Surgeon) practicing with Dr. Martha Jay and Dr. James Ivanoski at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin. She specializes in blade-free LASIK and small incision cataract surgery.

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.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRK AND LASIK? By Dr. Lisa Bennett, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

Most have heard of LASIK but PRK is less well known, even though it has been around longer. LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis and PRK stands for Photorefractive Keratectomy.  You can see why we use the abbreviations!

With LASIK we use two lasers instead of one. The first makes a tiny flap on the surface of the eye which is then gently lifted. A second laser contours the surface of the eye to improve your vision without glasses. The tiny flap is returned to its original position and there is relatively little, if any, pain. With PRK we start by removing the very thin outside layer of your cornea, called the epithelium. Then, as with LASIK, a laser is used to contour the surface of the eye.  We place a contact lens over the eye to aid in healing. There may be some pain as the eye heals.

PRK first became FDA approved in the U.S. in 1995. So at first this was the only laser refractive procedure available for those who wanted to improve their vision without glasses. While it was somewhat painful, the results were much better than with Radial Keratotomy (RK) which was the only other option at the time. By 1999, LASIK became FDA approved representing a major improvement over PRK as far a quicker healing and very little pain.

While not generally our first choice, PRK may be the only laser refractive option for some patients. If your cornea is too thin for LASIK, many can still have an excellent refractive result with PRK. Instead of very good vision on day one as with LASIK, it may take 3-4 days but you still get there. Which is right for you? We can let you know at your no-obligation, complimentary, personalized LASIK screening exam. Call today to get started on improving your outlook on life!

This pain-free procedure takes only seconds per step and is 50% faster than older technologies.

LASIK the definitely not same everywhere you go.  What varies is the technology employed, the experience of the doctor and the amount of time you actually spend with the doctor. Beware of ridiculously low prices as that usually means the use of a metal blade at the start of the procedure.  Also beware of high pressure sales pitches which indicate that you are just a LASIK sales quota, not a patient.

You will soon find that LASIK with Madison Medical Eye Care is a step above other options. Simplify your life using the most advanced technology available and a local doctor you can trust.

FLEX PLANS & LASIK for 2020 By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

Another summer annoyed with contacts and glasses but worried how LASIK might fit your budget?  If that sounds like you, don’t overlook the savings offered by Flexible Spending or Health Savings Accounts.  While not a component of all benefit packages, many employers do provide this option to utilize pre-tax income for medical procedures such as LASIK.  The rules vary but most plans require a fall commitment for the following year.  Check with your Human Resources Officer to determine your specific deadline.

Even if one of these plans is not an option for you, LASIK actually saves you money compared to staying in contacts and/or glasses. You may not realize it but those expenses add up: If you are now 30 years-old and wear 2 week disposable contacts, you can expect to spend $21,900 over the rest of your life on contacts, glasses and solutions!

Many but all people are good candidates for blade-free LASIK. That’s why a LASIK screening exam is critical before committing Flex funds for coming year. This complimentary evaluation involves critical measurements of your vision and your eyes to determine if LASIK is meant for you.  You’ll learn a lot about LASIK and have a chance to get acquainted with our great Madison Medical Eye Care team, now even better with the addition of Dr. Lisa Bennett.

Plan ahead to improve your outlook on life in 2020! Call today to arrange your free, no-pressure LASIK screening exam.  It just might be that 2020 is your year for 20/20!

LASIK FOR CHICKENS By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

We had fun with some new radio ads using the bird imagery of “LASIK for Chickens.” Nervous people are flocking to Madison Medical Eye Care.  They are taking advantage of proven technology so they can see like a hawk.  They want to soar without glasses or contacts. And finally, they now have the courage to come out of their shell.

While meant to be in jest, the point is that LASIK is now so safe that those who were afraid of the procedure in the past are coming forward.  Whenever there is a new procedure, early adaptors will line right up.  Those are the people who try new things right away.  Others like to lay back and see how their friends do before making the move.

Those "chickens" are now convinced that LASIK is safe and predictable.  What made the difference?  The advent of all-laser LASIK.  Now there is no need to fear the metal blade used previously for the first step of the procedure.  With the added precision of the laser, LASIK is more accurate, comfortable and safer.  This even means that many who previously were told they were not a LASIK candidate can now take advantage of this life changing procedure.

If you are tired of  glasses or contacts and have been waiting for LASIK to be perfected, the time has come at least at Madison Medical Eye Care.  For your eyes, you want an experienced local doctor you trust who is taking advantage of the most advanced technology available.

You can get started on your flight to better vision today!  Call to arrange your personal consultation to determine if blade-free LASIK is an option for you.  Note that we offer one year interest-free financing and accept most credit cards.

Dr. Martha Jay was the first surgeon to perform laser vision correction in the Milwaukee area and has been at the forefront of this new technology every since. She is a board certified ophthalmologist (Eye Physician & Surgeon) specializing in blade-free LASIK and small incision cataract surgery.

LASIK OR CONTACTS: WHICH IS SAFER? By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

By user-admin
August 25, 2017

If you don’t like glasses, your alternatives include contact lenses or LASIK vision correction. We know that LASIK is more convenient and saves you money in the long run but which is the safer alternative? You’ll be surprised to learn that that actually LASIK is safer than wearing contact lenses. As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, I treat all types of eye problems. It is much more common for a contact lens wearer to come in with a severe eye problem than someone who has had LASIK.

Martha F. Jay, Ph.D., M.D.

Up to 6% of contact lens wearers per year experience a severe eye infection, worsening dry eye symptoms or even an allergy to contact lenses themselves. These and other problems are not only painful but can lead to permanent vision loss and an inability to resume contact use or have LASIK in the future.

As LASIK safety is not the same everywhere you go, select your LASIK surgeon carefully.  All my patients benefit from blade-free LASIK using two lasers instead of one.  It is almost impossible to have a complication during this type of LASIK procedure. That’s why we call it “LASIK for Chickens.”

If you have been thinking about LASIK, consider your odds of a problem if you stay in contacts. You knew that LASIK simplifies your life and is more cost effective; now add safety to the list favoring LASIK.  Give us 20 minutes and we can turn those contacts into a distant memory.

While taking the blade out of the LASIK equation allows more patients to be good candidates, there still are exceptions. To see if LASIK is an option for you, call for your personalized screening exam.  It’s complimentary and pressure-free.
