If an excimer laser is to be used, what size will be the optical ablation zone not including the transition zone? Is this larger or smaller than my naturally dilated pupil?

Q: If an excimer laser is to be used, what size will be the optical ablation zone not including the transition zone? Is this larger or smaller than my naturally dilated pupil?

A: 6.5-6.8 mm. This is larger than anyone would need, no matter what size your pupil enlarges to in dim light.

If an eye doctor tells you that your pupil is too large for LASIK, walk out of his office. He does not know enough.  Most treatments footprints are at least 7.8, more when astigmatism is treated.

How accurate is LASIK?

If performed by an experienced surgeon using the best no-blade LASIK, it can be surprisingly accurate. So you need the most experienced surgeon using the best no blade technique.
Remember few doctors use the no- blade LASIK. Most are still only performing outdated PRK or blade LASIK. No-blade LASIK by an experienced surgeon is very accurate. Call Drs. Dello Russo for a FREE NO OBLIGATION consultation today. 1800-EYECARE

What could exclude me from having LASIK eye surgery?

Not everyone is a candidate for lasik. The measurements of your eyes are peculiar to you. If your measurements (thickness and shape) are within normal then you may qualify. They will allow the reshaping of the cornea which is the purpose of lasik. Check if you are a LASIK candidate here or call us for a FREE LASIK consultation at 1800-EYECARE.
