LASIK

LASIK is one of the most popular medical procedures in the world, providing clear vision without the need for contacts or glasses. It is safe, effective and a tremendous benefit to those who live an active lifestyle.

Approved by the FDA in the late 1990’s, this procedure has been enhancing the quality of vision for more than 12 million Americans. Our board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Richard Adler offers you the most advanced solution in LASIK here in Baltimore, Maryland.

With blade-free, all-laser LASIK, you can enjoy an active lifestyle and social activities without the hassle of glasses or contacts. Dr. Adler has performed hundreds of LASIK procedures with outstanding results. During your personalized consultation, Dr. Adler will provide you with all of the information you need to make a well-educated decision as to whether LASIK would be a good vision correction option for you.

“If you are on the fence about having LASIK surgery, I definitely recommend doing it and absolutely recommend that it’s done by Dr. Adler. I was terrified about having the process done, but Dr. Adler was extremely comforting and reassuring. He is extremely sharp, very nice and is always ready to answer questions. The staff is professional and nice too. My surgery went really well and I couldn’t believe I was actually able to walk out of the office that same day seeing without my glasses. I felt absolutely no pain during the procedure or at any point afterwards. I went from terrible vision (since I was a young child) to having 20/20 vision!!!”

The LASIK Procedure

During the procedure, your cornea is reshaped using laser technology. The degree of corneal reshaping depends upon the degree of vision correction needed. A computer is used to adjust the laser for your particular prescription. Numbing drops are applied so no pain is experienced during the procedure. LASIK is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to return home immediately.

Benefits include:

  • Immediate results: Vision correction is noticeable immediately
  • No downtime: The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes
  • No pain: Minimal discomfort may occur after surgery, but is usually short-lasting

For those who aren’t candidates for LASIK surgery, Dr. Adler offers other treatment options for vision correction including surgical vision correction. During your pre-operative evaluation, Dr. Adler will conduct a thorough eye exam to review every aspect of your overall eye health to determine which option is best for you.
