Find out more about our procedures
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), is a type of refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. The procedure takes about five minutes per eye and Siepser patients achieve dramatic improvement in their vision within 24 hours. The Siepser Eyecare team has been successfully performing this surgery for over 20 years and is immensely proud of a 0% infection rate. The experienced and knowledgeable Siepser team walks patients through every step of their vision correction, ensuring they are educated, at ease, and receive the best outcome.

At Siepser Eyecare, we believe that to provide our patients with the best care, nothing can be “one size fits all”. When a patient schedules a consult with us, we take the time required to fully understand the patient’s health and recommend the appropriate course of treatment.
How Many Successful LASIK Procedures Have You Performed?
Siepser Eyecare has been performing LASIK surgery for over twenty years and is very proud of our 0% infection rate for all LASIK procedures.
What Results Can I Expect?
Siepser Eyecare performs a full consultation, assessing whether patients are a good candidate for LASIK surgery to ensure their full satisfaction with results.
If I am Not a Candidate for LASIK Surgery, Do I Have Other Treatment Options?
During a patient’s comprehensive consultation, Siepser Eyecare will ensure that the condition of the patient’s eyes is fully understood and carefully explain the best treatment options. Patient safety and satisfaction is a top priority at Siepser Eyecare. Recommending the best treatment options for individual needs is essential to that commitment and the standard of care at the practice.
What Are the Potential Risks of LASIK?
Your vision is a major component of your quality of life. To protect sight, patients should gather as much information as possible and place their trust in proven medical professionals. We invite anyone interested in LASIK surgery to schedule a complimentary evaluation at Siepser Eyecare.
REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a type of vision correction surgery that involves using ultrasound to remove the eye’s natural lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to minimize the use of glasses and contacts. It is an option for some patients who are not a candidate for LASIK surgery.
Accommodation is a natural process that allows the eye to focus on objects at varying distances. As the lens becomes more rigid with age, accommodation declines. Accommodative Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are tiny, clear, plastic lenses that are surgically implanted into the eye and attach to the eye’s focusing muscles. Accommodating IOLs are primarily used for the treatment of cataracts. Accommodating IOLs are unique because they move inside your eye in order to accommodate focusing at different distances. The Siepser Eyecare team attaches a tiny hinge to the eye’s focusing muscles so that the patient’s eye can once again change the shape of the lens to focus. Dependence on reading glasses is dramatically reduced or even eliminated, along with the cataract and blurry vision.
LIGHT ADJUSTABLE LENS
The solution to correcting cataracts is to undergo surgery where the surgeon will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear intraocular lens (IOL). Historically, the surgeon would select a lens prior to the procedure that would best meet the patient’s needs and would have limited options to adjust the lens post surgery to further improve vision.
RxSight™ now offers a Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) that allows the surgeon to adjust it after the procedure to optimize the patient’s vision.
How does it work?
The surgeon completes the cataract procedure as usual. The only difference is that the surgeon would implant the LAL instead of a standard lens.
In the following two weeks after the procedure, the patient will return to the office to undergo non-invasive light treatments to adjust the lens to the specific patient’s needs to achieve customized, optimal vision.
The light treatments last approximately 90 seconds, are non-invasive and painless. Patients may require 2-4 light treatments over 1-2 weeks post cataract procedure to achieve optimal vision.
Because the lens does react and change with exposure to light, patients are required to wear specific UV protective glasses until their lenses have been adjusted to the optimal level and undergo a final treatment to “lock in” the results.
Benefits of Light Adjusting Lenses
- Patients are twice as likely to achieve 20/20 vision six months post cataract procedure
- Patients have the unique ability to preview and compare possible vision outcomes based on their preferences and lifestyle requirements
- More precise treatment for better results
