LASIK Patient Education
LASIK 10 Point Checklist
At nJoy Vision, we believe your decision to undergo LASIK surgery is one that will impact your sight—and your life—forever.
We also believe it’s important to fully evaluate your vision correction center to make sure the following points are addressed for a quality procedure and result.
1 – Completely Bladeless Procedure.
In traditional LASIK surgery, the corneal flap is created with a blade. This generally provides good results, but it carries more risk and can be difficult to ensure an accurate depth and consistent thickness of the flap in all patients. At nJoy Vision, we exclusively offer access to All-Laser LASIK, a bladeless procedure that delivers unprecedented accuracy and consistent results.
2 – Custom Laser and Wavefront Technology.
Wavefront technology measures multiple points of light, and maps the precise correction that focuses those points of light in your eye for clear vision. With a wavefront map, a custom correction for your unique prescription is developed. The customized ability to correct aberrations that were not even measured in conventional lasik allows a greater chance of seeing better than 20/20 and a reduced risk of night glare and halos.
3 – Advanced Eye-Tracking Technology.
Don’t worry about your eyes moving during a procedure, the advanced tracking technology follows the eye to make sure every laser pulse is put in an accurate location.
4 – Advanced Tear Film Analysis.
The amount of tear film is essential to aid healing of the cornea after surgery. If it is low, it should be corrected to an optimal level before proceeding.
5 – Pentacam Computerized Corneal Mapping.
If an irregularity of the curvature of the cornea is not detected before surgery, you may experience poor results. nJoy Vision provides Pentacam Topography to detect these irregularities and maximize a favorable outcome.
6 – Corneal Thickness Measurements.
If corneal thickness is not measured or is measured incorrectly, there may not be enough tissue preserved during the surgery. As a result, you may have irregular vision. An initial, comprehensive evaluation is always performed to determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for LASIK surgery. If the cornea is too thin for laser vision correction, an alternative course of action that fits the circumstances will be recommended, such as lens implant technology.
7 – Pupil Measurement with Light Amplification and Large Pupil Scanning Technology.
In low light, your pupils increase in size. Your pupil size should be measured in a dark room with either light amplification or infrared technology, neither of which makes your pupil artificially smaller. With our large-pupil custom laser technology, surgeons can further reduce the risk of glare and halos at night.
8 – Dilated Eye Exam.
Using drops that dilate the pupil allows your eye physician to see the health of the back of the eye. It also relaxes the focusing of your natural lens, allowing your doctor to achieve a more accurate measurement of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
9 – Sterilized Instruments for Each Eye.
To decrease the risk of infection, your surgeon should use sterilized equipment for each eye. Some surgery centers reuse blades and equipment, which increases the risk of infection. With nJoy Vision, you can be sure you’ll experience a clean, responsible environment during your procedure.
10 – Extended Service Backed by Experience.
Having surgery on your eyes is a huge step. Choosing an experienced surgeon to perform this life changing procedure is very important. nJoy Vision is proud to work with some of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the country.
