LASIK Surgery

What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the most popular vision correction procedures and is FDA-approved. Getting LASIK with Dr. Hecht in one of his safe and comfortable offices is one of the best ways to improve your vision.

Using an excimer laser, LASIK safely and permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye. The laser is used to create a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of the flap. The flap is folded back revealing the stroma or the middle section of the cornea.

Pulses from a controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced, bonding almost instantly and without stitches. Because the surface of the eye is not disturbed, there is little post-operative discomfort, few complications and a quick recovery time.

So what is LASIK in regards to my vision?

You lose your glasses, scratch them, leave them on the bus or plane… glasses just aren’t your thing. And the cost is adding up.

Contact lenses? Hard to put in, you’re always dropping them, you’re always thinking about them when you’re out with friends and want to stay longer, and they tear. The cost is adding up!

If you counted up all of the money, inconvenience and sheer frustration from the years with contact lenses and glasses, you’d have spent a fortune and a lot of time in frustration. Imagine a world where you could simply see at your very best without glasses or lenses. It’s possible with LASIK.


What is LASIK and who is a candidate for LASIK?

Based on the extent of your compromised eyesight and lifestyle, Dr. Hecht performs a thorough assessment. Most people are qualified for LASIK. The best way to find out if LASIK works for you is to talk to Dr. Hecht.

“I was having trouble doing my job. I’m an actor and normally I play the heavy. Most casting directors don’t want a bad guy who wears glasses and action scenes are tricky to pull off with contacts. Dr. Hecht reviewed my health and profession and decided LASIK was perfect for me.

The first time I was on set without needing glasses, I felt a new freedom. I also began booking more jobs. The healing time was quick and I didn’t feel any pain! Dr. Hecht is a great eye doctor.”— Louie
