Eye Michigan is one of many competing ophthalmologist firms that perform LASIK vision correction. However, of all the LASIK firms in Detroit, Eye Michigan was one of the first to perform the actual procedure. In fact, our doctors, Dr. Grosinger, Dr. Spigelman, and Dr. Grey were all part of the original FDA study in October 1991. That right there goes to show the history and experience our doctors must have compared to other LASIK firms in the Detroit area.
LASIK surgery has become a major procedure in vision correction, and for those who don’t know, the procedure is quite simple. First our doctors apply anesthetic drops to numb any pain or possible discomfort during the surgery. Your eyes are held open by lid speculum and your eye motion is restricted with suction. Next a flap is made in order for the surgeon to access the inner corneal tissue. A laser is then applied to the inner cornea to reshape it, and then the flap is realigned to where it was originally. That’s the main basis of the surgery.
The difference with our firm compared to other LASIK performing firms in the Detroit area is that our offers options. We use the most up to date technology, and you have the decision of having custom LASIK or bladeless LASIK. Custom LASIK allows the laser to accustom to your specific eye condition, allowing for better improvement and results. A plus of this process is that it can correct high order aberrations, which include glare, halos, or impaired night vision; whereas standard LASIK only helps in fixing nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatisms. Bladeless uses a laser to create the flap rather than an actual blade that can used by the surgeons. This procedure has been used in over 14 million LASIK surgeries throughout the world. Eye Michigan specifically utilizes the WaveLight® ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ excimer laser in this procedure, which is considered one of today’s most advanced laser platforms.
