4 LEARN MORE ABOUT LASIK What is All-Laser LASIK? All-Laser LASIK is a procedure that corrects vision by reshaping the cornea using the precision of excimer laser technology. It is one of the most popular forms of vision correction due to its accuracy, safety, quick recovery time, wide range of correction and minimal discomfort. The entire procedure takes only a short time, both eyes can be done the same day, and no stitches or patches are necessary. The All-Laser LASIK Procedure: Step-by-Step Using Wavefront-Guided technology, we take a fingerprint image and map of your entire optical system. This detailed information is evaluated by the surgeon and is transferred to the laser. A laser is used to create the corneal flap with the safety and precision of a computer-controlled laser beam. The surgeon then gently folds this flap back to prepare the eye for the treatment laser. A cool laser beam is used to reshape the cornea and eliminate sources of aberration. The most advanced tracking and alignment system (ACE Iris Tracker) is in place to ensure both safety and accuracy throughout your entire procedure. Finally, the protective flap that was created in step two is gently placed back in its original position. The cornea begins healing immediately and you can return home. Once the procedure is completed, you will be given additional eye drops. Your vision will probably be a little blurry at first, so we ask that you have someone drive you home and that you relax for the rest of the day. Recovery from All-Laser LASIK is amazingly fast. At Florida Eye Specialists you can count on us to be there every step of the way. UNDERSTANDING REFRACTIVE ERRORS NEARSIGHTEDNESS Nearsightedness, or myopia, occurs when the cornea is too curved or the eye is too long. This causes light to focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurry distance vision. FARSIGHTEDNESS Farsightedness, or hyperopia, occurs when the cornea is too flat. This causes light to focus beyond the retina and results in blurry near vision.

5 Advanced Technology All-Laser LASIK More Safety, More Accuracy, 100% Personalized Most patients are surprised to find that traditional LASIK is not performed entirely with lasers. The first step in traditional LASIK, creating the flap, is performed using a hand-held mechanical blade (microkeratome). Only the second step, reshaping the cornea, is performed using a laser. This blade and laser combination is simply no longer the safest LASIK procedure available, but unfortunately many surgeons still use this outdated method. Merging Technologies Advanced Control Eyetracking Technology, adjusts for even the smallest movement of your eyes during treatment for the highest level of accuracy and customization available. Since laser vision correction was introduced well over a decade ago, there have been steady advancements in the technology, leading to enhanced safety and visual outcomes. Always at the forefront of technology, it s no surprise that Florida Eye Specialists was the first and is the only practice to offer All-Laser LASIK in Jacksonville with the most comprehensive eye-tracker on the market, for the peace of mind you deserve. With All-Laser LASIK, the metal blade has been eliminated offering you a premium level of safety and accuracy. Leading the Way in LASIK Technology Thanks to All-Laser LASIK, most people who meet the general age and health requirements are candidates. Our advanced All- Laser LASIK technology can treat a broad range of prescriptions including mild to severe nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. So even if you ve been turned down for laser vision correction in the past, you may be able to have All-Laser LASIK at Florida Eye Specialists. With the ultra high precision IntraLase laser, creating the corneal flap is now safer and more accurate. By eliminating the blade once used in traditional LASIK, our patients enjoy a premium level of safety. Patented Iris Recognition Fully automated Zyoptix iris-based technology creates and stores individual iris maps for rapid patient identification, improved predictability and optimal results. Advanced Control Eye Tracking (ACE ) The most comprehensive eye tracker on market that adjusts for even the smallest movements of your eyes for the highest level of accuracy and customization available. Florida Eye Specialists is the only practice in Jacksonville with this technology. Wavefront-Guided Treatment Personalized treatment customized for your eyes only. ASTIGMATISM Astigmatism often occurs alongside either farsightedness or nearsightedness. Astigmatism is when the cornea is shaped like a football and causes light to focus on more than one point on the retina blurring or distorting vision. PRESBYOPIA Presbyopia is the natural aging process of the eye that affects everyone, usually starting around age 40. As we age, the natural lens in our eye loses flexibility, decreasing the ability to focus on things up-close and requiring the need for reading glasses.

6 WHAT TO EXPECT What to Expect The day of your procedure You will be asked to arrive an hour before your procedure for pre-operative preparation, which includes both antibiotic and anesthetic drops to numb your eyes. We will review your post-operative medications and activity restrictions at this time and answer any remaining questions you may have. Please wear comfortable clothing. You will remain awake during the entire procedure, during which you may expect to experience little or no pain. The entire procedure will last approximately 10 minutes per eye. After surgery, you may experience mild discomfort for 6-8 hours. Since you are just getting used to the freedom of clearer vision, we ask that someone drive you home and for you to relax for the remainder of the day. Most patients are LASIK candidates, but if another procedure for vision correction is recommended, expectations after surgery may differ. The next few days The day after your procedure, you will have a postoperative appointment to examine your eyes and to discuss any questions you may have. Most patients are able to drive and return to work and other normal activities the next day. DAY ONE Many patients will experience significantly improved vision immediately. * Patients are given drops to use and protective glasses to wear during sleep for the next several days. We suggest you have someone drive you home for a day of rest and relaxation. DAY TWO Your vision is significantly clearer, if not already 20/20. * Most patients are able to drive and return to work and their everyday activities, and will continue to notice improvements in their vision. You will be contacted by our doctors to ensure you re doing fine and will schedule a follow up appointment. DAY THREE You are feeling great and seeing better than ever. Your eyes may get a little tired in the afternoon and you may use drops if your eyes become dry. Your future is looking clear and bright. * *Individual results vary. THE CHOICE FOR LASIK IS CLEAR Only practice in Jacksonville to offer this Advanced All-Laser Technology with ACE Iris Tracker All LASIK performed on site in our state-of-the art surgical facility Experience, dedication and personal patient care

7 FAQs Does LASIK hurt? Because the cornea is numbed with eye drop anesthesia, patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure. Some patients experience some scratchiness or grittiness for a few hours following while others did not experience any discomfort at all. We ask everyone to go home and take a nap immediately after his or her LASIK procedure. For any discomfort that remains after your nap, Advil or Tylenol is usually sufficient. When will I be able to see? Many patients notice an immediate improvement in their vision and have functional vision the very next day. Full visual results are typically reached within one to three weeks but individual results do vary. When can I return to work, drive and to my normal activities? You can resume most normal activities such as driving, working, walking, and exercising the day after your procedure. For women, eye makeup cannot be worn for three days and they should purchase new mascara. Swimming or contact sports such as basketball or racquetball should be delayed for two weeks. What if my eye moves during the treatment or I blink? During the procedure a device will gently hold your eyelids open, which will prevent you from blinking. In addition, at Florida Eye Specialists the laser we use involves advanced eye tracking technology. In fact, Florida Eye Specialists uses the only Advanced Control Eye Tracker (ACE ) available in Jacksonville, the most comprehensive eye tracker available in the U.S. This technology offers improved predictability and better visual outcomes, particularly for patients with astigmatism. If, at any time, your eye moves too quickly or out of range, the laser will track even the tiniest movements. Will I need to wear glasses after? Most patients who have undergone All-Laser LASIK at Florida Eye Specialists no longer need glasses for their daily activities. However, if you re over 40 and did not elect for MonoVision LASIK, there is a possibility that you will need reading glasses because of the natural aging process of the eye. This condition, presbyopia, occurs as you get older. TAKE THE NEXT STEP Call us today and schedule your FREE LASIK Consultation ( $ 125 Value) to determine if you are a candidate!
