Are you considering laser vision correction? Milwaukee Eye Care offers the advanced All-Laser LASIK procedure, which is a safe and effective way to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. All-Laser LASIK differs from traditional LASIK in that it uses a precise, femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap from below the surface of the cornea. This results in a more precise, predictable flap and a more precise treatment of the tissue underneath. The procedure is done in a series of steps:
- The laser creates microscopic bubbles at a precise depth determined by your LASIK surgeon, then stacks bubbles around the corneal diameter to create the edges of the flap. This entire process takes only about 20 seconds.
- Your eye surgeon then gently lifts the flap and the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea and correct your vision
- The flap is returned to its original position and the healing process begins.
All-Laser LASIK is a safe, effective and reliable way to improve your vision, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of clear vision without glasses or contacts.
At Milwaukee Eye Care, our experienced eye surgeons specialize in All–Laser LASIK and can help you decide if this procedure is right for you. We understand that vision correction is a big decision and want to ensure you feel comfortable and informed throughout the process.

Now offering Contoura®LASIK
Milwaukee Eye Care is proud to be the only practice in the Milwaukee area to offer Contoura LASIK – a revolutionary laser vision correction procedure.
What’s the difference between All-Laser LASIK and Contoura® LASIK?
Traditional All–Laser LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure that involves a laser being used to reduce or completely eliminate a your dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Dr. Edmonds creates a small flap of tissue in your cornea, which is then lifted and the laser reshapes your underlying corneal tissue. The flap is then placed back and adheres naturally. Contoura LASIK is a variation of the traditional procedure and uses advanced technology to strategically reshape the cornea with more precision and accuracy. With this method, Dr. Edmonds can take multiple measurements of your eye to account for any differences in curvature from one part of your cornea to the other. The Contoura LASIK procedure also allows for adjustments to be made based on your specific vision needs.
What is the benefit of having Contoura® LASIK?
When choosing a laser eye procedure, accuracy is key. Each cornea is uniquely shaped and consists of thousands of elevation points. Given that your eyes are as individual as your fingerprint, it‘s important to opt for a laser eye procedure which will provide you with accurate vision correction.
Contoura Vision LASIK stands out from other procedures; it has been developed to assess the topography of your eyes and make precise corrections.
Contoura Vision LASIK targets parts of your cornea that need adjusting, reducing visual disturbances such as halo and glare that you may be experiencing with glasses or contact lenses.
Because of Contoura® Vision’s accuracy, your vision is likely to improve after the procedure. In fact, 92.6% of nearsighted patients achieved 20/20 vision or better*1, and it outperformed glasses and contacts in over 30% of eyes (vs. baseline BSCVA)+1. Up to 98.4% of patients are satisfied and said they would choose it again‡1

+At 12 months. BSCVA is defined as Best Spectacle-Corrected Visual Acuity.
‡In a subset analysis of 124 patients, 122 responded that they would have LASIK again.
