LASIK in Auburn Hills, MI

What Is LASIK?

Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck has comprehensive experience with many of the most innovative refractive surgery procedures, such as all laser LASIK. LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most asked-for refractive surgery in the eye care field. Millions of people around the world have opted for this transformative surgery and have achieved excellent outcomes. LASIK is the number-one, most-studied, elective procedure worldwide.

LASIK surgery can reduce or fully resolve myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism by precisely changing the shape of the cornea so that light can focus properly on the retina. A few of the best aspects of LASIK are that it is extremely fast and virtually painless, and it offers long-term outcomes. By employing the Visx platform or iLASIK technology, these custom, advanced technologies help provide highly personalized, accurate, and safe vision correction procedures.  Almost as importantly, Dr. Emmert-Buck's meticulous attention to detail during the initial assessment will allow her to tell you if you are not a good LASIK candidate. Fortunately there are other vision correction options you may be a candidate for, such as Evo ICL. 

At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, our mission is for every individual to achieve their best vision. We know that sharp eyesight may have a tremendous impact on quality of life and that getting the sharpest vision possible can optimize everything, from schoolwork to favorite hobbies.

Plan a visit at our Auburn Hills, MI office at your earliest convenience to receive a LASIK evaluation with our extensively educated eye surgeon to learn if LASIK could be the most effective treatment for you. You might be on your way to decreasing or even doing away with your reliance on prescription lenses. Candidates for LASIK are typically between the ages of 18 – 45.

What Can I Expect From LASIK?

At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, LASIK is a surprisingly fast, beneficial refractive error correction treatment. Further, a significant majority of people don't report any discomfort during the procedure, which typically lasts under ten minutes for both eyes.

Prior to beginning the surgery, the individual's eyes will be totally numbed with eye drops to maximize comfort. Next, starting with the first eye, a special eyelid holder will be used to prevent blinking during the procedure. People receiving LASIK can't see this device and will not feel anything but a slight tension in the eyelids. Following this, Dr. Emmert-Buck will utilize the first innovative laser device to create an delicate corneal flap which is then carefully lifted. She will then use a second laser to correct the contour of the lower layer of corneal tissue. Once this is finished, she will replace the flap back into its proper position. Incredibly, it will then typically reattach itself with no need for sutures. Individuals who receive LASIK usually have improved vision every hour that night and great vision when they wake up the next day!

Is LASIK vision correction safe?

Yes, LASIK is considered to be a safe and effective procedure for correcting refractive errors. It has been extensively studied and is the most commonly performed elective surgery worldwide. Dr. Emmert-Buck works with advanced technology and has years of experience performing LASIK, resulting in optimal outcomes for patients.

Will I still need glasses after LASIK?

Many patients are able to achieve 20/20 vision after LASIK and no longer require glasses or contact lenses for most daily activities. However, some patients may still need corrective eyewear for tasks like reading or driving at night. At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, we will discuss your individual case and determine whether you could need glasses or contacts after treatment.

Are the results from LASIK permanent?

The results from LASIK are designed to last a lifetime. However, it is important to note that as we age, our eyes continue to change. This means that some patients may experience slight changes in their vision several years after LASIK. The good news is that the majority of patients maintain long-term clear vision without the need for additional procedures in Auburn Hills, MI.
