LASIK is an excellent procedure that allows for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and even presbyopia (with monovision and advanced non FDA approved treatment patterns). The key with vision correction is achieving the best result with the least risk in the greatest number of patients. LASEK and PRK are alternatives to LASIK. PRK is our preferred alternative. With PRK there is no flap or cutting of the cornea with a blades. The treatment is done with an excimer laser and there are no flap related early or late complications. With that said. LASIK is an extraordinarily successful procedure. Our success rate with all vision correction procedures is among the highest in the country with our special nomogram and data generation and treatment methods. We call this method, the "Malitz Method". With our advanced technology and techniques, the majority of our patients achieve a visual acuity of 20/20 or better!
