Dr. Lee Hofer & Dr. Tom Harvey are eye surgeons who offer a variety of vision correction surgeries, including LASIK.

LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

The Excimer laser

The Excimer laser is used to perform both LASIK surgery and PRK vision correction procedures.

To find out if you are a candidate for LASIK, or other vision correction procedures, contact Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic to schedule a consultation.


The Procedure

During LASIK the surgeon first creates a thin corneal flap using a device called a microkeratome. The corneal flap is lifted up, and the laser beam is applied to the exposed interior surface of the cornea to reshape the tissue. The flap is then replaced over the treated area.

This corneal flap serves a natural bandage, which eliminates the discomfort associated with other types of refractive surgery, and expedites the healing process. Because of the extraordinary bonding properties of the corneal tissue, stiches are not need to keep the flap in place after LASIK surgery.
