About the Chao Vision Institute Difference

At Chao Vision Institute, we see that maintaining a healthy vision for life requires more than performing eye surgery.

LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Ketaomoleusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)
LASIK is an extremely safe and effective treatment for a wide range of common vision problems including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. After cataract surgery with intraocular lens implant, sometimes an enhancement is needed to fine tune vision result by treating residual nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism with laser vision correction.
For selected patients, PRK may be the recommended refractive procedure as an alternative to LASIK. Still widely used, PRK differs from LASIK in that a corneal flap is not made. After the surgeon gently removes the outer layer of cells (the epithelium), an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea. Patients may experience minimal discomfort until the epithelium heals.
