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 of complications and should be discussed with your eye care provider.
Working with your Eye Doctor If you’re a candidate for LASIK, or a similar procedure, your eye doctor and surgeon, Neil Griffin, M.D., will offer you an advanced vision correction experience built on a team-based approach tailored to your unique visual and lifestyle needs. Ask your eye doctor today to help you schedule your initial LASIK consultation.
Griffin Eye Center uses the latest and most advanced technology with the WaveLight® 500 femtosecond 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 this unique combination of advanced laser technology.
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.
Griffin Eye Center is the first in South Carolina to offer another vision correction option is SMILE, or “Small Incision Lenticule Extraction.” SMILE is the latest advancement in laser vision correction for myopia (nearsightedness), providing LASIK-like outcomes in a minimally-invasive procedure.
