Every Eye is Unique
Your age and unique eye anatomy determine your solution:
For people with clear vision, the cornea and lens bend light so it focuses properly on the retina.
Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are the result of irregularities in the shape of the eye’s cornea, resulting in blurred or distorted images. Each of these issues can be fixed by vision correction.

Procedures Based on Age
LASIK and its Alternatives
for Nearsightedness, Farsightedness & Astigmatism
1. Customized All-Laser LASIK(Most Common)This is the treatment most often recommended for people within this age range. It is safe, gentle, and the results are proven. It is also the treatment ClearSight has spent over 25 years perfecting, and the first ever vision treatment with a written money-back guarantee!
2. SMILESMILE (Small Incision LASIK) is performed with one of the same lasers used for LASIK but with a different technique that leaves the surface of the cornea almost untouched. Because this technique does not require a “flap”, it results in a quicker recovery and maximum comfort. SMILE is perfect for people who are active, practice contact sports, or are simply looking for a gentler LASIK alternative. ClearSight is currently the only center in Oklahoma that offers this treatment.
3. ASA (Advanced PRK)ASA, or Advanced PRK, is a LASIK alternative that is often recommended for patients with thin corneas or specific occupations. The main difference with PRK is that no flap is created. Instead, the excimer laser reshapes the outer surface of the eye to correct your prescription. Although this makes the recovery time longer, the end results are as good as LASIK.
4. Visian ICLThe Visian ICL is an advanced vision correction treatment for patients with moderate to high nearsightedness. Often, patients who have been told that they are not candidates for laser vision correction make ideal Visian ICL recipients. Some of the benefits of ICL are quick healing time and fast visual stabilization. Visian ICL provides some of the highest quality results possible (highest rate of results better than 20/20).
