All-Laser LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In situ Keratomileusis) is an exciting procedure that can eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.  The procedure consists of two separate steps.  The first part uses a femtosecond laser to accurately and precisely create a corneal flap (approximately 100 microns thick).  After the flap is created and lifted, a second laser is used to reshape the cornea based on thorough testing and wavefront technology (like a fingerprint of your eye).  The flap is repositioned.  Drops are used to prevent infection and minimize inflammation. The creation of a LASIK flap allows faster recovery and less irritation or pain. 

LASIK is not safe for everyone, and a thorough and careful evaluation is imperative to rule-out issues that may worsen after laser vision correction.  Specific concerns are dry-eye and keratoconus.  Discussion about distance and near vision, glare and halos, and your vision goals, is imperative to exceeding your expectations.  With her specialty expertise, years of experience, and fellowship training, Dr. Koreishi and Dr. Ple-plakon look forward to helping you reach your goals of unaided clear vision in a safe and caring environment.


As cornea specialists in DFW, Dallas-Fort Worth, Dr. Koreishi and Dr. Ple-plakon strive to provide the best cornea care, availability, and patient education.
