When you finally decide to get rid of the glasses and contact lenses, it can be scary and exhilarating. Manhattan LASIK Center is the Tri-State leader in laser vision treatment.

We are the only practice in the region with five of the top lasers in our surgical area. We are proud to be the most experienced provider of the ZEISS SMILE procedure in the entire country.

What to Expect During LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK works by reshaping your cornea. It uses two lasers: a femtosecond and an excimer laser.

Your surgeon will numb your eyes with some drops before you head to the operating area. A speculum will hold your eyelid still so that any blinking will not affect the laser. A femtosecond laser will create a small flap in the side of the cornea giving the surgeon access to the underlying tissue.

The second laser is an excimer laser which reshapes tissue in the cornea. Your surgeon will reshape tissue in the cornea’s middle layer located under the flap of the tissue with the excimer laser until the correct curvature is achieved. This process uses corneal mapping to determine the exact amount of tissue to remove.

Afterward, the flap is set back in place, and acts as a natural bandage that protects your eye as it heals. You are ready to head home to rest for the next day in less than an hour!

What is Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK?

At Manhattan LASIK Center, our surgeons perform Ultra-Thin Flap Bladeless LASIK with flaps of 80-micron thickness, compared to flaps of 120-micron thickness with traditional LASIK. Our 80-micron ultra-thin flaps produce better visual results, more rapid visual postoperative recovery, and a lower rate of enhancements, leaving the cornea stronger and significantly reducing postoperative dryness.
