I-Surgeons's team of physicians oversees a range of sight-restoring laser treatments. LASIK and PRK, the main laser eye surgeries at the practice, enhance visual acuity in patients suffering from myopia, astigmatism, and hyperopia, and the treatments use three different lasers to reshape corneas of varying thicknesses. To determine if patients are eligible for these surgeries or in possession of superpowers, a doctor examines eyes during free consultations that measure corneal thickness and pupil size. The surgeons also turn their eye expertise to blepharoplasties to correct drooping upper lids or puffy under-eye bags. They fight wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead with Botox and Dysport injections.
