Associated Eye Care fields a trio of ophthalmologists who specialize in the all-laser iLASIK system, which utilizes wavefront-guided laser technology to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The vision-correcting procedure begins with a WaveScan eye mapping, which blueprints the cornea’s imperfections and creates a customized 3-D image to guide the surgeon throughout the process. The all-laser IntraLase then creates a precise corneal flap, which reduces the risk of side effects, complications, and mirages of pink elephants. The CustomVue laser reshapes the cornea according to the 3-D eye map to improve vision before the protective flap adheres to the eye naturally. The procedure takes around 10 minutes per eye, and cornea-numbing eye drops are applied to minimize discomfort. Clients usually return to their normal routine within one to three days and typically achieve full vision results within one to four weeks—the same time it takes to find a pair of glasses in a crowd of Coke bottles.
