WHY SHARPEVISION?

ALL-LASER LASIK

At SharpeVision, we perform only all-laser LASIK. Prior to the mid 2000s, a device with a steel blade was the only option to create the flap for LASIK. This has been called “standard LASIK.” Since then, an extremely precise femtosecond laser has been available to create the flap on the cornea. It allows faster, safer, and more comfortable creation of the flap and is a large step forward in technology. It’s the only way Dr. Sharpe will perform LASIK and is the very best for your eyes. Dr. Sharpe recommends PRK for about 10% of his patients due to a variety of medical, lifestyle, and vocational reasons. PRK stands for “Photo-refractive Keratectomy,” and is another laser technique with results identical to LASIK.

IS LASIK RIGHT FOR YOU?

In most cases, yes! While not everyone can safely have laser vision correction, around 90% of the patients we see are good candidates for LASIK. And because we utilize the latest technology, we’re able to treat many patients who weren’t candidates in the past. Take a minute to schedule a free comprehensive eye examination to see if you’re a candidate. Our doctors will evaluate your eyes using the most modern and comprehensive measurements available. Dr. Sharpe and his team will discuss all the options and answer any questions you may have. For patients who are not candidates for LASIK or PRK, lens implant technologies may be available.

GET A FREE CONSULTATION

At SharpeVision, it’s FREE to see if you’re a LASIK candidate. We waive the $150 fee for this 90-minute consultation because we are confident that once you meet with our doctors and staff you’ll want to be free from glasses for life. As part of your consultation we’ll perform multiple diagnostic measurements, including 3-D measurements of the shape and thickness of your cornea, your prescription, glaucoma check (no air puff!) to ensure that your eyes are otherwise healthy. Our patients are surprised to learn how quick the surgery is and how soon they can return to normal activity (often later the same day).

WHY SHARPEVISION?

Dr. Matthew Sharpe founded SharpeVision modern LASIK in Seattle in 2012 after 16 years of practice, and 60,000 laser vision correction procedures.  He took the best of everything he’d observed, not just in medicine but in every consumer interaction he has had, and translated it into a medical experience unlike any you have ever had. He only uses the newest laser technology, paired with highly experienced optometrists and support team to deliver the best possible results.

COMMON MYTHS ABOUT LASIK

Over the years, we’ve heard many myths about vision correction and want to clarify them and answer other common questions.

MYTH #1

LASERS CANNOT CORRECT ASTIGMATISM

It’s hard to believe we’ve been able to treat astigmatism since 1998, and we’ve been treating it with improved lasers ever since. When you have moderate to severe astigmatism, laser vision correction is an extremely appealing option, because toric (astigmatism correcting) contact lenses are thicker, more expensive, less comfortable, and give more variable vision than ordinary contacts.

MYTH #2

I WILL NEED READING GLASSES

We can’t avoid aging, but we can often avoid reading glasses. A moving part inside our eye, called the crystalline lens, becomes less flexible as we age. Although no current technology can restore this flexibility of youth, we can avoid reading glasses by employing a time-tested method called “monovision”. During your consultation, we demonstrate this option for our patients over 40 to see well at distance and near without glasses.

MYTH #3

THE LASER WILL MESS UP IF I MOVE

Our lasers have an amazingly fast infrared tracker that keeps the laser perfectly centered on your eye. It follows small movements of your eye during the procedure, so if your eye moves, the laser moves with it. Large movements of the eye cause the tracker to stop the laser until the eye is back into position.
