Double Laser Vision Correction is Here

Truly Customized All-Laser LASIK

If you’ve been waiting for laser vision correction technology, your wait is over. All-laser iLASIK™ combines the latest of three FDA-approved technologies to provide a customized LASIK procedure tailored specifically for your vision imperfections. Although surgeons have been performing LASIK procedures with great success over the past decade, never before has laser vision correction been able to address each individual’s vision needs with such precision and deliver such great results.

iLASIK™ in Action

Every process in iLASIK™ is customized for you, and aids the surgeon in getting the best possible results for your laser vision correction procedure. There are three main steps to the iLASIK™ procedure.

Step 1: WaveScan® Map

The first step in iLASIK™ is the preparation of the WaveScan® 3-D map. Through a series of tests, this tool maps out all the imperfections in your vision so your personalized vision correction plan can be formulated for the Advanced CustomVue vision correction laser.

Step 2: Intralase™ Laser

Although complications are rare, in conventional LASIK the majority occur during the creation of the flap with the microkeratome blade. The Intralase™ Laser used in iLASIK™ eliminates these types of complications. The flap, created with the Intralase™ Laser, is a thinner, more precise flap that allows for faster healing of the cornea.

Step 3: Advanced CustomVue laser vision correction

The last step in creating vivid and clear vision for you is the custom laser treatment on your cornea. TheWaveScan® map provides the surgeon and the laser’s computer the information needed to reshape your cornea for your best vision possible. The cool beam of light treats the cornea painlessly and precisely, in just a matter of seconds.

What’s The Next Step?

If you’ve been thinking about vision correction for a while now but haven’t been able to commit, or you’ve been told in the past you weren’t a candidate, now is the time to re-evaluate. If your concerns are over results, iLASIK™ addresses those concerns for most people. In clinical studies, 100% of nearsighted patients and 95% of all participating patients could pass a driver’s test without glasses or contacts one year later. In addition, 98% of patients with mild-to-moderate nearsightedness obtained 20/20 vision or better. If you weren’t a candidate for conventional LASIK because you required treatment outside the approved parameters, or your corneas were too thin, you may now be a candidate for iLASIK™. iLASIK™ is opening the doors to a future of better vision for many people who were not previously eligible. If you have questions about affordability, Horizon have partnered with 3rd party financing companies to offer affordable monthly payments.

Your next step is to schedule an evaluation with one of our Drs. at The Spectrum to confirm you are a candidate and then we will schedule your surgery date with Horizon Laser Vision Center .It’s as simple as that! You’ll be enjoying your new vision before you know it and you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

Am I a Candidate?

Perhaps the greatest news about iLASIK™ is that the majority of people with nearsightedness, farsightedness as well as astigmatism are candidates for this state-of-the-art vision correction procedure. With the use of a bladeless flap creator, and the wide range of vision imperfections that the FDA-approved treatment laser can correct, more people than ever before are excellent candidates for laser vision correction.
