Advanced Surface Ablation Treatment in Albuquerque
Serving ASA patients throughout New Mexico
At one time, ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation) was more popular than LASIK, and the preferred procedure among the two. During ASA, a patient’s cornea is resurfaced to their specific prescription, strengthening their cornea and improving their vision. Using excimer lasers, ASA treats the surface of the cornea, and does not create a flap like LASIK. This means the result is more gradual and not immediate like LASIK, however there are fewer risks associated.
