Laser Vision Correction
Loyola's eye specialists understand how important vision is to you and your family. We know that the decision to have laser vision correction (LVC) surgery is life-altering and one only you can make. We hope this information is helpful to you in making your decision.
We offer a free consultation that will determine if you are a good candidate for LVC and whether it is right for you. To schedule your no-obligation visit, please call us at (888) LUHS-888 and ask to speak with a laser vision correction coordinator.
What is laser vision correction?
Laser vision correction describes the procedures that use laser technology to reshape the front surface of the eye and help to improve vision. The shape of the cornea can be altered using a laser, which allows for precision and predictability during the procedure.
LVC is one of the safest forms of surgical vision correction available to patients. To date, more than 1 million people have undergone the procedure in the United States alone.
At Loyola, we use the latest technology so you can choose LVC with confidence. Our vision-correcting laser automatically and instantaneously tracks the eye movements during a laser procedure. This allows the surgeon to track the patient’s eye movements to achieve maximum centration and accuracy. Some of the benefits of these advanced laser vision correction procedures include:
- Improved visual quality over standard LASIK
- Significantly reduced incidence of halos and nighttime glare
- More accurate measurement and correction of optical aberrations
- Lower re-treatment rates
