Detailed Precision Beyond Glasses or Contacts
With a more detailed analysis of your eye, visual imperfections are corrected more accurately. The laser is able to analyze nearly 800 points in a 7mm pupillary area of the cornea. Compare that to eyeglass tests that analyze 78 points of the whole cornea.

Despite the process being extremely accurate, it doesn’t take a long time. You are in the laser room for only 10 to 15 minutes. Following the procedure, you are escorted to the recovery room where you can relax until you’re ready to go home.
LASIK XTRA – THE PROCEDURE
A LASIK PROCEDURE WITH LASIK XTRA
The Lasik Procedure:
Lasik Xtra is a simple treatment performed in conjunction with Lasik that adds just a few extra minutes to the Lasik treatment and requires no extra doctor visits. In a few minutes, during your Lasik procedure, Lasik Xtra will add biomechanical strength to your cornea, enhancing the power of Lasik by helping you see better for longer.
Lasik Xtra uses Ultraviolet A (UVA) light and riboflavin (vitamin B) eye drops to strengthen the cornea.
Ultraviolet A (UVA) is one of the three types of invisible light rays given off by the sun (together with ultraviolet B and ultraviolet C) and is the weakest of the three.
Riboflavin (vitamin B) is important for body growth, red blood cell production and helps in releasing energy from carbohydrates. Its food sources include: Dairy products, eggs, green leafy vegetables, lean meats, legumes, milk nuts. Breads and cereals are often fortified with riboflavin.
