The most commonly performed type of laser vision correction

LASIK technology has matured and incrementally improved since FDA-approval in 1998. Modern All-Laser LASIK is a painless 15-minute blade-free laser procedure in which patients typically resume their normal activities the next day. The safety and comfort of LASIK were improved by replacing the original microkeratome blade with a femtosecond laser, and is thus referred to as “All-Laser LASIK” or “Bladeless LASIK”. Similarly, modern wavefront excimer lasers are now capable of a custom laser treatment which have demonstrated better vision outcomes and better night vision results.

Ideal for: Patients ages 18-60+ with stable nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. For people above age 40, Monovision (“Blended-Vision”) LASIK can also help with near vision.

The ultra-modern laser procedure that’s
bladeless, painless and flapless

ZEISS SMILE (“Small-Incision Lenticle Extraction”) LASIK is an FDA-approved “All-Femtosecond” laser procedure for treating nearsightedness and astigmatism. The VisuMax laser is the ONLY laser that is approved for the minimally-invasive ZEISS SMILE procedure, which is bladeless, painless and “flapless”. While ZEISS SMILE can effectively treat nearsightedness, All-laser LASIK and Epi-LASIK remain the preferred procedure for treating severe astigmatism (over 3 diopters)  and farsightedness.

Ideal for: Patients ages 18-60 with nearsightedness and astigmatism. SMILE may be the treatment of choice for patients with dry eyes, patients exposed to potential eye trauma (i.e. military, boxers), or patients that simply don’t want a “flap” procedure, such as All-Laser LASIK. SMILE is not for patients with farsightedness or more than 3 Diopters of astigmatism.

Epi-LASIK (Modern PRK)

A safe and effective alternative to LASIK

Wavefront Epi-LASIK is a customized “blade-less” laser vision correction procedure, which a flap is not created during the procedure. Both Epi-LASIK and LASIK can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. While the initial recovery is slower with Epi-LASIK compared to LASIK, the final vision result are the same. Epi-LASIK is an FDA-approved alternative to LASIK, which may be the treatment of choice for certain patients.

Ideal for: Patients with thin or asymmetrical corneas, prior corneal surgery, exposed to potential eye trauma (i.e. military, boxers). Or anybody that just doesn’t want a flap could consider Epi-LASIK/PRK or SMILE LASIK.

Insertable Contact Lens

“Implantable Contact Lens” is Visual Freedom from Glasses and Contacts

EVO ICL (aka “insertable contact lens”) is an FDA-approved insertable collamer lens implant that may be the treatment of choice for moderate to severe nearsightedness and astigmatism (up to -20 diopters of nearsightedness and 4 diopters of astigmatism), or for some patients that are not otherwise candidates for LASIK. Dr. Craig Bindi was one of the initial surgeons in the country to perform the EVO ICL procedure in 2005. The EVO ICL has a rapid recovery and is removable/exchangeable, if ever needed in the future.

Ideal for: Patients ages 21-45 with large amounts of nearsightedness. Patients must have a normal “anterior chamber depth” for a proper fit of the EVO ICL.



FDA-approved procedures to improve near vision

KAMRA Corneal Inlays are FDA-approved for patients over 40 that use over-the-counter reading glasses for close work. An attractive feature of corneal inlays is the they are “removable”, if ever necessary for a future technology.

Ideal for: Patients ages 40-60 that are dependent on reading glasses or bifocals for near vision.

Stages of Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (DLS)

Stage 1: Internal lens of the eye gradually becomes less flexible causing near vision to get worse during the 40s and 50s. This was formerly referred to as “presbyopia”

Stage 2: In addition to becoming less flexible, the eye’s internal lens becomes discolored and  yellow, which degrades visual quality.

Stage 3:In addition to becoming less flexible and discolored, the eye’s internal lens becomes cloudy and more opaque.

DLS Stages 2 and 3 are often treated with lens replacement to restore clear vision.

Types of Lens Replacement Procedures

Basic Cataract Surgery: An common outpatient procedure for patients with vision problems caused by cataracts (clouding of the eye’s internal lens). In basic cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear lens implant to restore transparency. Patients still need to wear glasses for near vision or far vision or both after undergoing basic cataract surgery.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE): An increasingly popular outpatient procedure for patients with a dysfunctional lens that want to be free of glasses and contacts.  In RLE, the dysfunctional lens is replaced with a modern lens implant that is transparent and clear, and is preferable basic cataract surgery for patients seeking a lens-free lifestyle.  

Ideal for: Patients ages 60+ with Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome or early stage cataract development.
