iLasik is Here!
LASIK has been in use for decades, but the introduction of exciting new technologies has produced superior results in less time and with greater safety and satisfaction than ever before. With thousands of successful refractive surgeries under his belt, Dr. Vinay Gutti is a local leader in iLASIK customized laser vision correction. Dr. Gutti is the first local eye surgeon to utilize new and proven technologies such as iDesign custom eye-mapping and the femtosecond laser, making Lake Eye the smart choice for LASIK vision correction.
Lake Eye’s Tavares office boasts the region’s most advanced LASIK technologies for the sharpest, clearest vision you can imagine! Lake Eye’s Dr. Vinay Gutti utilizes the most advanced technologies, for the quickest, safest and most rewarding results. Lake Eye is a local leader in the use of iDesign eye-mapping technology, which creates a customized map of your eye that is 25 times more precise than standard measurements, and the bladeless femtosecond laser, which can restore most patients to 20/20 vision, improving myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (abnormal curvature).

iDesign® – Creating iLASIK That’s Built Just For You
iDesign revolutionizes LASIK by making your procedure as unique as you are. First, wavefront technology analyzes how your eyes receive and utilize light. Next it creates a topographical map of your eye, noting more than 1,200 details to optimally customize your vision correction. iDesign eye-mapping is 25 times more precise than traditional measurements for optimal accuracy.
THIS PERSONALIZATION SYSTEM MEASURES BOTH THE INSIDE
AND OUTSIDE OF YOUR EYE:
Wavefront analysis measures how light travels inside your eye and details the imperfections in your vision
Corneal topography scans the outside surface of your eye, measuring every tiny variation to help guide the laser during your treatment
These 2 measurements together create a completely personalized treatment plan
A Difference You Can Truly See.
Because our eyes are as unique as our fingerprints, we each have a distinctive “map.” The first step is to create a 3D analysis of your eye. Over 1,200 measurements are mapped as data points.
YOUR ONE-OF-A-KIND TREATMENT PLAN
Using your unique measurements, the laser corrects your vision based on the precise measurements of your eye. No one in the world will receive the same procedure.
ONCE THE PROCEDURE IS OVER, IN MOST CASES, YOU’LL IMMEDIATELY SEE THE DIFFERENCE
After 1 hour, you’ll begin to see more clearly. After 1 day, you can return to your normal routine
Expectations & Outcomes
Most patients report an improved ability to engage in activities like sports, exercise, reading, watching TV or movies, and driving, even at night. They also say they enjoy life with greater ease and convenience.
Most iLASIK patients find they no longer need prescription lenses for most things they do. It should be noted that people over 40 typically experience normal vision changes due to a condition called presbyopia, in which the lens of the eye loses flexibility over time. While iLASIK can greatly improve most vision problems, some patients over 40 may still require reading glasses, even after surgery. Less commonly, some patients may need reading glasses after iLASIK who didn’t need them before.
Surgery in Minutes Without Blades
LASIK is performed in rapid phases. First, Dr. Gutti creates a micro-thin flap over the cornea. Next he focuses an advanced femtosecond laser beam on the corneal surface to prepare it for correction. Next he uses an excimer laser, which delivers a cool beam of ultraviolet light to gently remove microscopic bits of corneal tissue and correct eyeball and/or lens curvature to enhance light refraction and vision. The flap is then gently replaced.
CREATING YOUR EYE MAP
25X more precise
than conventional measurements
The first step is to create a 3-D map of the imperfections of your eye using wavefront eye- mapping technology. 25x more precise than conventional measurements, it even measures and corrects errors that are not detected by conventional technology.
PREPARING YOUR EYE
< 20 seconds
for blade-free flap creation
The procedure uses an ultra-fast laser for creating a thin flap to prepare the cornea for treatment.
STEP3: DELIVERING YOUR PERSONALIZED TREATMENT
>1200 data points
to create your personalized treatment plan
Next, an ultra-precise laser is used to gently reshape the cornea to the desired curvature, based on the digital information from your personalized eye map.

What Makes iLASIK Better Than Regular LASIK?
LASIK is a quick laser procedure that has been used for more than 25 years to safely improve the vision of millions of people worldwide. Now there’s iLASIK, the next generation of LASIK surgery systems. Enhanced by groundbreaking new technologies, iLASIK surgery is 100% customized to each patient, setting it leagues apart from standard procedures.
iLASIK incorporates iDesign, an FDA-approved system that uses wavefront guidance to create a 3D map of your eye and analyze its imperfections. iDesign uses more than 1,200 data points in your cornea to create this map, making it a whopping 25 times more precise than standard eye measurement methods.
Once the map of your eye has been created, highly experienced eye surgeon Dr. Vinay Gutti uses a hyper-fast femtosecond laser to create an ultra-thin flap on the cornea, which he carefully folds back. Using a precision laser called an excimer, Dr. Gutti directs a cool, gentle beam of ultraviolet light to the irregularly shaped areas pinpointed by the customized iDesign eye map, correcting the curvature of the cornea. The flap is then placed carefully back in its original position, and the procedure is over in just minutes.
iLASIK has a high reported satisfaction rate among patients. Greater than 91% of patients with myopia (nearsightedness) surveyed reported they were satisfied with their results. Most patients have noticeably clearer vision within an hour of the surgery, with great improvements over the next day or two. Most patients can return to routine activities, even driving, the day after surgery. Most patients achieve 20/20 visual acuity, and many patients did even better, gaining 20/16 or better. A clinical study of myopia patients six months after surgery demonstrated they experienced significant improvement in clarity, near vision, far vision and night vision, and were better able to perform activities like watching a movie or driving at night. iLASIK technology allows us to treat a higher range of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism than previously capable with prior Lasik procedures.

DISCLAIMER: Patient results may vary. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks that you should discuss with your doctor before you decide to have surgery. Some patients need additional laser surgery to attain desired results. Not all patients are able to give up corrective lenses after surgery. Possible side effects include loss of vision, double vision, increased sensitivity to light, dry eye, reduced night vision and visual irregularities from mild to severe.
