Laser Vision Correction in Ocala with LASIK
Imagine waking up and seeing clearly without glasses or contact lenses! The latest technology and use of the Excimer laser now makes it possible for people who have been dependent on glasses for almost all of their activities to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses.
How Does Laser Vision Correction Work?
Laser vision correction works by reshaping the cornea so that light rays focus more precisely on the retina, thereby reducing or eliminating refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, and reducing the need for glasses and contact lenses. The Excimer laser, now in its second decade of use, uses a “cool” or non-thermal beam of light to gently reshape the cornea and is a minimally invasive procedure.
What Procedures Can Be Performed?
There are several different laser vision correction procedures available: LASIK, LASEK, Custom Cornea, Wavefront, and Surface Oblation. Here at Central Florida Eye Institute, we utilize the iDESIGN Refractive Studio, and we will be happy to go over any and all procedures that may be appropriate for you during your free initial evaluation.
When Is Laser Eye Surgery Needed?
The decision to have Laser Correction is an important one. Dr. Croley believes that all individuals considering this procedure should be completely educated on it prior to having it done. Central Florida Eye Institute offers free screenings so you may gain valuable information as it relates specifically to you. You are also able to meet the qualified staff and see the facility before your laser procedure.
iDesign Refractive Studio
Our focus. Your vision.
The most personalized laser vision correction available.
Vision is more than just seeing better or farther. Vision is about being surrounded in detail. Immersed in each moment. Captivated by every part, of everything.
The iDESIGN® Refractive Studio gives your doctor the ability to deliver a truly personalized PRK (Laser Vision Correction) procedure, one designed specifically for you.
When you choose the iDESIGN® Procedure, you’re choosing a procedure that offers:
- 25 times more precision than conventional measurements*
- One-of-a-kind custom laser vision correction.
- 20/16 or better vision for the majority of patients.
*Based on mathematical calculation: wavefront aberrometer = .01D. Manifest refraction = 0.25 D. Manifest 0.25 ÷ wavefront aberrometer 0.01 = 25. 25x more precise.
A Difference You Can Truly See
Your vision is complex. It relies on multiple, interconnected parts of your eye to create what you see. That’s what makes the iDESIGN® Refractive Studio so personalized: The system measures both inside and out.
- Wavefront analysis measures how light travels inside your eye and creates what you see, detailing the imperfections in your vision.
- Corneal topography scans the outside surface of your eye, measuring and analyzing every tiny variation in curvature and elevation to help guide the laser during your treatment.
These two measurements together create a completely personalized treatment plan.
1) Your Personalized Measurement and Analysis
The iDesign® System takes over 1,200 measurements of your eye and maps each data point to create a custom procedure plan designed just for you — all in only three seconds.
2) Your One-of-a-Kind Procedure
Using this custom procedure plan, the laser is able to correct your vision to your exact needs in only a few minutes. No one in the world will receive the same procedure.
3) Your New Vision
Once the procedure is over, you’ll immediately notice the difference. After one hour, you’ll begin to see more clearly, and within a day, you can return to your normal routine.

You are not a good candidate if you have degenerative or autoimmune diseases or have a condition that makes wound healing difficult. The iDESIGN® System driven Laser Vision Correction Treatments may result in some discomfort. The surgery is not risk-free.

Alternative to iDESIGN® System driven Laser Vision Correction Treatments, but are not limited to; glasses, contact lenses, RK, and ALK. iDESIGN® System driven Laser Vision Correction Treatments cannot meet the job-related vision requirements for some people such as pilots. You should be willing to undergo a one-week contact lens trial with your individualized monovision prescription and evaluate your vision over a range of tasks during this trial period; this will help you find out if you can tolerate Monovision Laser Vision Correction Treatments. It may take several weeks for your eyes to adjust to monovision. You may want to avoid or decrease your participation in visually demanding situations such as driving until you have adjusted to your monovision. It is very important to stop wearing contact lenses before the pre-surgical eye exam. Before considering laser vision correction: a) Have a complete eye exam. b.) Talk with one or more eye care professionals about the potential benefits of laser refractive surgery, and the complications, risks, and time required for healing.
