What is Lasik
Testing for LASIK Eye Surgery in College Station
What College Station LASIK Eye Surgery Patients Can Expect
Custom Wavefront Lasik is the procedure of choice by experienced refractive surgeons around the world. Lasik is an acronym for LASer In-situ Keratomileusis, which means, “to shape the cornea within using a laser.”
The eye surgeons of International EyeCare are committed to providing leading-edge vision correction treatments using the most advanced technology currently available. In the past, vision correction was not customized, meaning that prescriptions could only correct a patient’s vision to a certain degree. Using Custom Wavefront LASIK, our surgeons can now take exact measurements of each patient’s eyes, to correct their unique imperfections and thoroughly improve their vision, without the help of glasses or contact lenses. Our Bryan /College Station LASIK surgery patients can seek treatment for their nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism through laser eye surgery by reshaping the cornea (the transparent dome covering of the eye) to refocus light rays more precisely on the retina.
Our optometrist, Dr. Stephanie Turk, provides complete management of pre- and post-LASIK patients. She performs all of the pre-LASIK testing to determine whether someone is a suitable LASIK candidate, and she also handles all LASIK follow-up care.

At their state-of-the-art laser eye surgery facility, the surgeons of International EyeCare utilize the Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser System for all laser vision correction procedures.

In addition, the ALLEGRETTO Wave Eye-Q is the fastest vision correction laser for LASIK available in the United States. This laser releases 400 bursts per second, and can correct one diopter in about two seconds. This results in a shorter treatment time and increased comfort for our patients.
