 Visual Acuity Before: 20/200

After: 20/20

Surgeon: Dr. Martin Burger

Procedure: Lasik

I’ve Heard About “Dry Eye” after LASIK: What is it and how can I prevent it?

Dryness of the eyes is common both before and after LASIK. A simple, painless five-minute test can determine whether or not a patient will require some form of intervention other than the use of simple tear substitutes after LASIK – but most doctors don’t take the time to perform this important screening test. We perform this test on every patient. If we determine that your eyes are dry (or at risk of becoming dry after LASIK), we will recommend several options to optimize your tear function. Since it is difficult to increase tear production, the best way to improve your tear function is to retain more of the tears that you naturally produce.

The most effective of these options is called punctal occlusion therapy or punctal plugs. These plugs help dryness by partially blocking the outflow of your own natural tears from the eye. Since the tears produced by your body are a much better match for your eyes than any artificial tear you can buy at a store, this technique works extremely well for the vast majority of patients. The longer these plugs stay in place, the more cost-effective they will be for you. Our doctors and staff will help you determine which plug is best for you.

What are the Procedures You Offer to Correct my Vision?

May 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Ask Dr. Burger

Laser vision correction procedures reshape the clear tissue at the front of the eye (the cornea) by using a unique cool laser beam called the Excimer laser. The two most effective methods of delivering this laser to the cornea are called LASIK and PRK. The laser treatment in LASIK is delivered under a “flap”. LASIK is the most popular elective procedure in the history of medicine for good reason. This procedure is quick (usually less than one minute per eye), comfortable, and extremely effective for a wide range of prescriptions.

LASIK also has the quickest visual recovery of any of the laser vision correction procedures. PRK is a “flapless” surface laser technique. It was the first laser vision correction procedure ever performed, and is an “all-laser” approach to laser vision correction. It gives the best outcomes for eyes with thinner or weaker corneas and can be the best choice for some patients with specialized occupational needs. More than 95% of our soldiers who have laser vision correction have the PRK procedure performed. The visual recovery after PRK is not quite as rapid as LASIK, but after healing is complete, the visual results are identical.

 Visual Acuity Before: 20/400

After: 20/15

Surgeon: Dr. Martin Burger

Procedure: Lasik

Patient’s Testimonial:   I have had to wear glasses and/or contacts during my waking hours for 20 years. I knew my outcome with lasik should result in 20/20 vision but I didn’t really know how that would be since I didn’t remember ever having it. Now I see everything clearly wherever I am, any time of the day! Being able to drive, swim, take a nap, and not wake up with dry contacts … I am still in awe! My experience with Dr. Burger and the whole team and staff has been wonderful. Thanks a million!!

Patient’s Testimonial:   I have worn contacts and glasses my entire life. Having lasik surgery has been a life changing event. I see better and clearer than I ever did with my contacts and glasses. I wonder why I waited so long! I can’t wait to swim this summer and be able to see!
