An Advanced Approach to Clear Vision
As the first to offer bladeless LASIK eye surgery in Florida, the Filutowski Eye Institute, formerly the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute, corrects your vision with a safer and more precise approach. After a quick, outpatient procedure, you’re ready to enjoy life without glasses or contact lenses.
- 1. Find out if you’re a candidate.
Through a complimentary consultation, we determine if you’re a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Most patients qualify for LASIK; for about 10% of our patients, other vision correction procedures offer better results. To have LASIK eye surgery you must be at least 18 years old, have stable vision and healthy eyes, not be pregnant or nursing, not have cataracts or advanced glaucoma, and not have disorders causing a thin cornea or other corneal or eye diseases. Our comprehensive refractive eye exam helps determine your eligibility and sets your expectations for the LASIK procedure.
- 2. LASIK Step 1: Preparing your cornea.
By using advanced laser technology, known as the femtosecond laser, our eye surgeons prepare your cornea. With unprecedented control and precision, the laser delivers short pulses of light which form microscopic bubbles to create a precise flap of corneal tissue. In less than a minute, you’re ready for the second step of LASIK.
- 3. LASIK Step 2: Correcting refractive error.
The eye surgeons then use an advanced Excimer laser to deliver specific patterns to the cornea, correcting your refractive error. We correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Additionally, focusing one eye for near vision can reduce your need for reading glasses.
- 4. LASIK Step 3: See in high definition.
Your vision may be blurry immediately following LASIK surgery but should improve quickly. The majority of our patients see clearly enough to drive, return to work, and resume normal activities one day following their eye surgery. Our patients’ reactions to their clear vision named our service, High Definition LASIK. Join those patients who now see in high definition after their procedure at the Filutowski Eye Institute.
