LASIK is a safe and popular alternative to glasses and contact lenses, with millions of satisfied patients. The best way for you to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK is with a complete medical examination of your eyes and personal consultation in our office. LASIK can treat a broad range of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in people who are at least 18 years old, who are in good general health with a stable prescription and who don’t have any eye diseases. LASIK, like any other surgical procedure, has risks and should be discussed with your eye care provider.
Griffin Eye Center uses the latest and most advanced technology with the WaveLight® EX500 laser, the newest FDA-approved technology for Blade-Free LASIK. The laser pulses 500,000 times a second, which is 10 times faster than prior lasers and uses one tenth the energy.
We are the first in South Carolina to offer the latest advancements of both the Wavelight® EX500 and the VisuMax® laser. The laser speed and accuracy allow Dr. Griffin the ability to expand treatment capabilities, enhancements of current treatments, broaden range of correction and provide the ultimate outcomes for our patients seeking LASIK surgery in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area.
We also offer the Contoura® Vision technology for patients with imperfections in the curvature and optics of the cornea. Contoura® Vision is laser vision correction that uses corneal topography guided planning software that creates a truly customized LASIK procedure that can give eyes a better focusing surface.
