Waukegan, IL LASIK Eye Surgery

Not all eye care in Waukegan, Il is the same, especially when it comes to a procedure such as LASIK. LASIK eye surgery is used to treat a myriad of eye issues including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and more. This is a technical procedure that involves correcting the shape of the cornea that causes refractive errors. If you’re frustrated by always wearing glasses or contact lenses and you’re interested in a more permanent solution, please get in touch with our team to see if you’re a candidate for LASIK!

PRK Eye Surgery in Waukegan, Illinois

In addition to LASIK, our clinic also offers PRK laser procedures to improve your eyesight, and reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts. PRK stands for photorefractive keratectomy and it is also utilized to correct refractive errors in the eyes. These can include hyperopia, myopia, presbyopia, and more. Rather than creating a fap like the  LASIK procedure, PRK instead uses a laser to alter the shape of your cornea. With PRK surgery, over 95% of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better. Although the recovery process is a bit longer than LASIK, many patients note that it’s worth it to achieve these results, while maintaining a high level of safety. Dr. Colman Kraff is incredibly skilled in both surgeries, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands.
