Vision correction surgery will begin with the administration of local anesthetic eye drops for optimal comfort throughout the LASIK surgery. Dr. Montgomery will then place a speculum over the eye to prevent you from blinking during the procedure. Once your eyes are prepared, he will use the bladeless wavefront Ziemer LDV femtosecond laser to make a thin flap incision in the cornea. As one of the fastest lasers in the market, this advanced technology safely and gently creates a clean flap and helps reduce stress on the cornea. This technology also allows Dr. Montgomery to deliver accurate and precise results, correcting refractive errors in about one minute.
He will then gently fold the corneal flap to the side and use an Alcon WaveLight® EX500 excimer laser, the fastest excimer laser in the market, to reshape the cornea and correct your impaired vision. With a map of your eye programmed into the laser, it will administer quick pulses of concentrated light and remove excess corneal tissue.
This technology allows Dr. Montgomery to provide results with a high rate of success to patients in Northglenn, and the greater Denver, Colorado, area. Once the cornea is successfully reshaped, we will complete the procedure by folding the flap back into place. Since your eye will heal on its own, no sutures are required.
