LASIK surgery involves the use of a laser to reshape the surface of your cornea so that it can focus light properly on the retina for sharper vision.

PRK

With PRK, the epithelium, the thinnest, upper-most layer of the eye, is removed to access the cornea in order to reshape its curve and improve vision.

Cataract surgery is the removal of the eye's cataracted lens and its replacement with a new, artificial lens that may even correct refractive errors.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Laser-assisted refractive cataract surgery adds advanced laser technology and vision-improving artificial lenses to the traditional cataract removal.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Traditional cataract surgery involves the removal and replacement of the cloudy natural lens via a tiny incision made with a hand-held surgical blade.

Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve caused by internal eye pressure, typically the result of built-up eye fluid, that can lead to total blindness.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Ab-interno canaloplasty (ABiC), a minimally invasive procedure, improves the flow of eye fluid by enlarging the drainage canal using a microcatheter.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

During cataract surgery, an iStent can be inserted into the trabecular meshwork of the eye for patients with glaucoma to relieve intraocular pressure.

SLT

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) relieves intraocular pressure for glaucoma patients when less aggressive treatments do not produce results.

The Ahmed tube shunt, a surgical implant device, allows easier drainage of excess eye fluid to lower eye pressure and slow damage to the optic nerve.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Visian and Verisyse implantable collamer lenses (ICLs) are surgically placed either behind the cornea or the iris to help improve refractive errors.

Recovery Time
1 - 2 days

Refractive lens exchange surgery can address certain refractive errors, like presbyopia, by exchanging the eye's natural lens with an artificial lens.

The cornea is the transparent, rounded outer structure of the eye. Its primary function is to focus light on the retina and encourage clear vision.

PTK

Recovery Time
1 week - 1 month

Phototherapeutic keratectomy is an advanced laser eye surgery that is performed to address and remove irregularities on the cornea, like blurry spots.

Keratoconus is a disease that causes the cornea (the clear outer layer of the eye) to become misshapen and oblong, which results in distorted vision.

Recovery Time
4 days

In corneal cross-linking (CXL), riboflavin and ultraviolet light are used to strengthen corneal tissue weakened by eye conditions like keratoconus.

Recovery Time
1 year

Corneal transplants are highly effective surgical procedures that utilize donor tissue to replace a damaged or diseased cornea or epithelial layer.

Recovery Time
None
