The best place you can come to for Brooklyn LASIK surgery is our Leading LASIK Center New York. At our practice we perform a very large number of LASIK surgeries and our patients benefit from experiencing excellent vision results. Our highly trained, well-liked, and well-respected eye surgeon is Dr. Samer Amin Khosrof. Dr. Khosrof provides LASIK surgery for patients to correct their refractive errors in their eyes, as long as their refractive errors fall within certain parameters. LASIK surgery actually reshapes the cornea so that clearer vision can be achieved. Nearsightedness, farsightedness and even astigmatism can all be corrected using LASIK surgery.
LASIK eye surgery is a safe and effective procedure that will improve the focusing power of the eye and allow the patient to see more clearly. This surgery will reduce or totally eliminate a patient’s dependence on eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK surgery is performed when the patient’s eyes are anesthetized with eye drops. A handheld laser will then be used to create a flap on the outermost surface of the eye to reveal the cornea. The laser will then be used to reshape the cornea and the flap will be replaced back over the cornea. As part of a pre-surgical evaluation the depth of your cornea will need to be determined to make sure that a flap can easily be created in it with the use of a laser. For LASIK surgery you also do not want to have had any vision changes over the past year; our ophthalmologist will also want to be sure that you have realistic expectations of what you can achieve from having the surgery. The success rate for LASIK is about 95%, which is extremely high. The procedure itself is practically painless, with some patients saying they feel a mild discomfort.
