LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is a popular option for vision correction, often eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.

Other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

If you have an interest in Lasik, schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Parks. He will provide a comprehensive examination and discuss your questions and concerns. If you are a good candidate you will be referred to TLC in Providence. They have a great track record and will answer any further questions before proceeding with laser surgery.

You will return to see Dr. Parks one week after surgery. He will monitor you several more times to optimize your recovery and final vision.
