What is LASIK?

Thanks to incredible advancements in technology, LASIK is now safer, more predictable, and available to a broader group of people. In other words, now is the perfect time for LASIK. But what exactly is LASIK? LASIK is an acronym that stands for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis”. Like other types of refractive surgery, the goal of LASIK is to improve your vision and help you achieve reduced or total independence from glasses and contact lenses. To do this, the LASIK procedure permanently reshapes your cornea, allowing your eye to focus light more clearly on the retina, which leads to clearer vision.

All-Laser, Blade-Free LASIK

One of the most notable advancements in vision correction is the development of all-laser, blade-free LASIK eye surgery. All-laser, blade-free LASIK eye surgery uses a unique combination of the most advanced technology to provide a fast, safe, and proven way to improve vision. Traditionally, LASIK used to be performed using a bladed instrument that required manual operation. In 2008, the FDA approved the use of a femtosecond laser, a laser that would replace the bladed instrument. One of the first to adopt this new technology, The LASIK Center of Wilmington Eye is now the premier all-laser, blade-free LASIK provider in eastern North Carolina. With all-laser, blade-free LASIK, your procedure is completely customizable, safe, and precise.


All-laser, blade-free LASIK is performed in two steps:

  1. Using the first laser (called the femtosecond laser), a small flap is created on the protective surface of the eye: the cornea. With advanced medical technology, our surgeons are able to customize the depth and diameter of the flap made to meet the specific measurements of your eye. This can help achieve optimal visual results.
  2. Once a flap has been made, the second part of LASIK is the reshaping of your cornea. Using a second laser (called an excimer laser), we reshape the curvature of the cornea, correcting your refractive errors. Its new shape allows light to be focused more directly onto the retina, significantly improving your vision. Once this is complete, the flap is put back in place to allow the eye to naturally heal.

LASIK Is Customized To You

Here at Wilmington Eye, we use the most advanced LASIK technology called iLASIK. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to completely customize your LASIK procedure to your individual eyes.
