LASIK – Los Angeles

ALL-LASER LASIK is the gold standard in vision correction surgery.  However, some people are not LASIK candidates for one reason or another.  At Assil Eye Institute, we are committed to helping each patient to safely realize their dream of great eyesight. We therefore employ multiple alternative options to LASIK that will allow people for whom LASIK isn’t appropriate, to still achieve freedom from eyeglasses and contacts.

What is LASIK and is it for me?

LASIK is a refractive surgery procedure where expert surgeons use lasers to change the shape of your cornea thus eliminating your need for glasses.

If you are 18 years or older and have a prescription between +8.00 and -8.00, with or without astigmatism and have a corneal thickness above 500 microns, LASIK may be the right procedure for you.

Make sure the doctor you choose is highly qualified and bring a list of questions with you to your consultation. That list of questions should be answered to your satisfaction before you proceed and should include:

  • How many successful procedures have you done?
  • What other procedures do you offer?
  • Do you offer All Laser LASIK (the Gold standard of LASIK)?

What is LASIK eye surgery like?

All Laser LASIK eye surgery, when done by an expert in refractive surgery, is a painless procedure. Using lasers to create the flap as well as lasers to shape the cornea (eliminating your need for glasses), takes about 10 minutes total.

The actual laser time of sculpting, takes about 30 to 50 seconds per eye and you may feel only a slight pressure on your eye. This pressure is good, it is the doctor making sure that your eye is perfectly still while creating the flap. Most patients wonder what they were so worried about AFTER they have it done because it seemed so easy and they could see immediate results.

Make sure you find an expert in refractive surgery, have a consultation with him or her and make sure you feel comfortable with them and the practice prior to having your procedure.

LASIK is an acronym that stands for Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis. LASIK is the most exciting technique of laser vision correction being sought after worldwide. The ALL-LASER LASIK procedure combines the precision of the Star S4 Excimer Laser, iFS™ Intralase™, the eyes own natural healing power, and the skill of a surgeon you can trust.

LASIK Patient Reviews – Los Angeles

Hooray! I just had Lasik yesterday with Dr. Assil, and I can already see better than 20-20. It was basically painless.
I.C., LASIK Patient Review
I ended up having Lasik 2 weeks ago. Best decision I have ever made. Wish I had done it years ago. It was easy and it is a joy to finally see! I visited 3 other doctors before deciding on Dr. Assil. I wanted the best and that’s what I got.
L.M., LASIK Patient Review
I don’t post very many reviews but I just had to share. Every time I visit Dr. Assil’s office, it’s the best experience ever- from his friendly, not to mention professional staff, to the man himself! I refuse to go anywhere else. My LASIK was done in 2007 and wow, now it’s 2015 and still 20/20… all these years later.
