LASIK Detroit & Rochester Hills

What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) involves the treatment of the central cornea of the eye with an excimer laser underneath a hinged flap of corneal tissue. LASIK can be used to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.

Is LASIK Right for Me?

You may be a suitable candidate for LASIK if you:

  • Are over the age of 18 and struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism
  • Have a stable eye prescription for at least a year
  • Are not pregnant or nursing at the time of surgery

If you have a pre-existing eye disease that affects your vision (e.g., glaucoma, cataracts, corneal disease), or if you have thin corneas, you may not be a good candidate for LASIK.

To see if you are a good candidate for LASIK we welcome you to take our LASIK Candidate Quiz.

Why Choose Dr. Weingarten for your LASIK

Dr. Weingarten is an exceptionally skilled eye surgeon specializing in advanced forms of LASIK and cataract surgery. Over the years, he has helped numerous laser eye surgery and cataracts patients in the Detroit area enhance their vision while decreasing their dependence on glasses. In addition, Dr. Weingarten offers a range of general ophthalmology services, including complete eye exams, diabetic retinopathy treatment and glaucoma surgery.

The LASIK Procedure

The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis using a local anesthesia and is relatively painless. The actual procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes per eye. Depending on your prescription, and the amount of correction needed, the laser itself only takes 20-50 seconds to correct your vision.

Healing is rapid and does not require stitches. Many of our LASIK patients see a dramatic improvement in their vision within the first day. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a day or two.

Will I still need reading glasses after getting LASIK?

The goal of LASIK is to eliminate or reduce your dependence on corrective lenses. It cannot correct an aging-related eye condition called presbyopia, which may require the use of reading glasses. However, monovision is a technique used for presbyopia patients that corrects vision in one eye for distance and adjusts the other eye for reading. Your pre-surgery testing and discussions with the doctor will help determine if monovision is an option for you to consider.
