20/20 Without Glasses
LASIK
Now at last, you too can have 20/20 vision—without glasses—using laser vision technology. Fairview has helped thousands of people eliminate dependence on glasses and contacts with this life-altering procedure. We can do the same for you by reshaping the cornea so that light rays focus more precisely on the retina and reduce or eliminate refractive errors.

iLASIK
Fairview Southdale Hospital is the first in the Twin Cities to offer iLASIK – the latest in LASIK surgery. This “bladeless” procedure takes only minutes because the incisions are made with lasers. Most iLASIK patients have 20/20 vision or better after the surgery.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Schedule an eye exam with an iLASIK surgeon.
  2. Computers make an individual blueprint of your eyes. This blueprint actually drives your laser correction, giving you a highly customized result.
  3. A laser, not a blade, is used to make a thin flap in your cornea.
  4. A second laser is used to make the correction to your vision.

Contact your doctor today to find out if you’re a candidate for LASIK or iLASIK. To find the name of an ophthalmologist near you, call 612-672-7272.
