After placing anesthetic in your eye, an instrument will be placed to keep you from blinking. An alcohol solution is applied to your cornea to “loosen” the cells in the epithelium (or front layer of the cornea). This epithelial layer will then be removed gently. Next, a computer program directs the laser treatment to re-shape your cornea. A medicine is then applied to your cornea to help prevent any scarring from occurring while the front layer re-grows, and a bandage contact lens is placed over the eye for comfort. Over the next 3-4 days, the contact lens remains in your eye. As the cells re-grow, your vision will fluctuate, and you might experience some mild discomfort. On your next office visit, the doctor will remove your contact lenses, and your vision will slowly improve over the next few days. You will notice that your vision continues to improve over the next few weeks!

"Dr. Rhodes is a master at getting your vision right. I love not wearing glasses; colors are brighter, vision is clearer. He explains what is going on with your vision and what he is going to do for you in a manner that is clear and understandable. Also, it's a small thing, but increasingly rare, every time I have an appointment, I am seen within a few minutes of the appointed time. I recommend Dr. Rhodes to everyone I know, he is just that good!"
