1 TM Caring for Arizona s Eyes for 30 Years SEE YOUR LIFE CHANGE. LASIK and other refractive procedures for the best sight possible.

2 TRADITIONAL LASIK LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. As testimony to its life-changing benefits, over one million procedures are now performed each year in the United States. The procedure begins with a microkeratome an instrument that glides across the surface of the eye and creates a hinged flap. A laser is then used to reshape the eye s cornea to improve visual acuity. The results of this procedure are excellent, and most patients notice a dramatic improvement in their vision immediately after treatment. PRK Identical to LASIK with one major difference. With PRK, or Photorefractive Keratectomy, there is no flap created. Because PRK does not create a corneal flap, the entire thickness of the underlying stroma is available for treatment. This is of particular benefit if the cornea is too thin for LASIK. Additionally, those with a very active lifestyle might find additional benefits to PRK vs. traditional LASIK. CUSTOM LASIK This procedure corrects imperfections of your eye also known as high-order aberrations that traditional glasses or contacts cannot correct. This advanced treatment is custom designed to give you the best vision correction possible. VISX CustomVue Wavefront technology allows the surgeon to see aberrations on the eye clearly, and then maps them on a computer to record the unique fingerprint of your eye. It is 25 percent more precise than traditional measurement methods used for glasses and contact lenses. ilasik The most customized LASIK procedure possible. All-laser and truly personal - everything based on your personal vision dynamics. ilasik combines the most advanced CustomVue platform with InterLase for a fully customizable blade-free procedure. The IntraLase laser uses precisely controlled femtosecond micro pulses to create a very uniform and precise flap, without the use of a blade, as in traditional LASIK. So safe and precise, it is endorsed by the US Military and NASA.

3 YOUR EYES ARE IN GOOD HANDS. When it comes to refractive surgery, we understand it is not easy to decide whom to trust with your vision. At Nationwide Vision, your needs are our number one priority. From the moment you walk in for a consultation, our team of medical professionals and staff work together with you to give you superior, quality care. We work with the latest FDA-approved technology the industry has to offer, such as the ilasik system, VISX Star 4 (S4IR), CustomVue WaveFront, and NIDEK EC Imagine, in the time it takes to order a coffee at your local coffeehouse, you can be seeing clearer than ever before. LASIK alters the curvature of the eye to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Virtually painless, minimally-invasive and is conducted on an outpatient basis. Determining if you are a candidate is the first step. If you re between the ages of 18 and 45 and your vision has been stable for the past 2 years, you may be in great shape. Ultimately, no two eyes are exactly the same. No two corneal maps are the same, just like a ngerprint. So a pre-operative exam will determine your candidacy for LASIK.

4 HIGH PRESCRIPTION DOESN T MEAN YOU RE OUT OF LUCK. IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSES Tired of fighting with your contact lenses? Been told your prescription is too high to be a LASIK candidate? Visian ICL could be just right for you. Contact lenses are wonderful. They help you see clearly without the need for glasses. But the every day and every night care can be sometimes too much to handle. Plus, dirt and allergies can make them unbearable. Visian ICL is an Implantable Contact Lens that works with the eye to correct vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that go on the surface of the eye, the Visian ICL is positioned inside the eye between the iris (the colored part of the eye) and the natural lens where it stays indefinitely. And in the future should your vision change dramatically, it can be removed from the eye. The perfect candidates are people between 21 and 45 and nearsighted, especially those with a very high prescription. It s also ideal for patients with thin corneas and dry eyes. If you are tired of the every day hassle you face with your contact lenses, ask about Visian ICL today. And see clearly tomorrow.

5 SEE LIKE A KID AGAIN, WITHOUT READERS. CLEAR LENS EXCHANGE A refractive lensectomy, or Clear Lens Exchange, can turn the clock back for anyone over 40 to restore both near and distance vision to youthful clarity. By replacing the natural lens with an artificial lens, this procedure also removes any possibility of developing cataracts later in life. And unlike the refractive procedures that change the shape of the cornea, a clear lens exchange corrects vision by removing the eye s crystalline lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. A clear lens exchange can be used to treat nearsighted and farsighted as well as age-related presbyopia (where patients require reading glasses). As always, your experience and vision is first and foremost on our minds. Our staff of medical professionals will take you through each and every phase of your procedure and after care.

6 FAQ s QUESTIONS ARE GOOD. ANSWERS ARE BETTER. What is LASIK? Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis is a surgical procedure in which a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Your board certified Nationwide Vision ophthalmologist will create a corneal flap, then use a cool excimer laser to reshape the underlying tissue. The flap will then be put back in place, allowing for a quick and relatively painless visual recovery for most patients. Does LASIK surgery correct only nearsightedness? No, LASIK can correct nearsightedness, as well as farsightedness and astigmatism. Am I a candidate? If you need glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you may be a candidate for surgery. Will I be awake during my surgery? A mild sedative and anesthetic drops are administered before surgery. You will be fully conscious, yet relaxed, throughout the procedure. What happens during the recovery period? You will wear clear, protective glasses until the next day. These glasses will protect against foreign objects entering your eyes. Your eyes may feel scratchy and may tear up for about four hours after surgery. This sounds expensive. Any help with financing? LASIK and other refractive procedures can be more affordable than you think. Plus, we have many different financing options available, for every type of situation. Ask us how we can help you and your budget. Your eyes are everything. Through them, you witnessed 1,000 spectacular sunsets, saw your children take their first steps, and watched the flicker of interest on the face of someone special who, from the moment you met, you knew was going to make your life better. We want to help ensure you don t miss a thing. Caring for Arizona s Eyes for 30 Years TM 2222 E. Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ N. Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ EYE-CARE ( ) nationwidevision.com
