Choosing the Right Refractive Surgery Procedure at Our Florida Practice

Refractive surgery procedures are not one-size-fits-all. However, with so many refractive procedures available, it’s hard to know which one will meet your needs. Very few surgeons have the expertise to do all of them. At St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute, our surgeons have the experience and offer a full range of refractive surgery procedures, giving our patients options from which to choose.

After an eye examination, renowned surgeons Dr. Pit Gills, Dr. Jeffrey Wipfli and Dr. Robert Howard will determine whether or not you qualify for refractive surgery and, if so, they will recommend the procedure best suited for you. This recommendation will be based upon several factors including your age, degree of refractive error, and lifestyle. Depending on these factors, some patients may benefit from LASIK eye surgery at our Tampa Bay-area practice, while others may receive the best possible results from PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), CLEAR™ (Clear Lens Extraction and Replacement), or the Visian ICL™.

It is important to consult experienced ophthalmologists, who can explain the differences between each procedure so that you can make an informed decision. Contact St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute today (888-464-5588) if you are interested in LASIK or one of our other procedures.
