LASIK performed to high standards in our Orange County facility

Related Categories

Eyeglasses and contact lenses can serve a very important purpose. For many people, however, the reliance on corrective eyewear can become somewhat frustrating or uncomfortable after some time. Dr. George Salib has been performing LASIK in the Orange County area for several years and continues to see the immense benefit his patients gain from this procedure.

The team at Orange County Eye Institute has the education and training, the board-certification, and the reputation you can count on when you want to correct problematic vision. Dr. Salib uses proven technologies and precise technique to obtain the desired outcome, and treated patients have been very happy with their results. LASIK may be the ideal procedure to correct hyperopia, myopia, and also astigmatism.

How LASIK is done

LASIK is one of the most commonly performed vision-correcting procedures. The outpatient procedure is performed with the use of a local numbing medication. With the eyes adequately numbed, the patient remains comfortable and also finds it easier to keep the eyes open during treatment. LASIK takes only a few minutes due to the use of a precision femtosecond laser device. However, we do use a comfortable instrument to facilitate a comfortably open-eyed position.

During LASIK, our laser instrument is used to slightly open the cornea via a small flap. An excimer laser, which has cool energy, is then focused on the underlying tissue, reshaping it precisely. Reshaping the cornea allows for incoming light to hit the right areas of the eye, improving vision.

The idea of having eye surgery can seem uncomfortable. Patients of the Orange County Eye Institute discover that LASIK is not only a very quick procedure but that it is also gentle to the delicate ocular tissues. Healing after LASIK eye surgery begins immediately and side effects are typically no more than slight irritation that lasts only a few hours. Each day following this corrective surgery, tissues progressively heal. In many cases, vision also continues to improve over the course of a few months.

Clear vision is an integral part of your optimal quality of life. If you would like to reduce your reliance on corrective eyewear, we can help. Call (949) 441-5444 to schedule your visit with Dr. George Salib.
