LASIK & Laser Vision Correction

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a surgical treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK reshapes the cornea to improve the eyes’ ability to focus. LASIK eye surgery is effective in treating most levels of nearsightedness or farsightedness, with or without astigmatism.


A revolutionary, computer-controlled technology, IntraLASIK or all-laser LASIK, allows our eye doctors to safely and precisely make corneal flaps during a patient's laser vision correction surgery. In traditional LASIK eye surgery, a microkeratome blade housed inside a mechanical instrument is used to create a flap in the cornea (the outer layer of the eye). The Beverly Hills Eye Associates were one of the first in the country to use an IntraLase® laser to make the corneal flap.

The level of precision possible through IntraLASIK reduces patient anxiety and significantly reduces complications commonly seen with the traditional LASIK vision correction approach. Based on each patient's vision needs, the surgeon customizes all IntraLASIK procedures. Remarkably accurate and safe, all-laser LASIK has changed the way doctors and patients think about vision correction surgery. The precision of the Intralase allows us to program the depth of the corneal flap with much greater accuracy than can be done with a mechanical blade. Traditional LASIK eye surgery has had great results and relatively few complications. Some of the complications that occur can be linked to the creation of the flap using the microkeratome. IntraLASIK enables patients who were previously considered high-risk to obtain vision correction surgery.

This procedure makes a very thin flap preserving as much of the corneal tissue as possible after the LASIK procedure is finished. Because the Intralase laser can be programmed to make a flap of any desired size, orientation and depth, the flap is customized to optimize your results. Take our LASIK Self-Test to find out if you may be a candidate. We treat patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Culver City, Santa Monica and close-by areas.

IT WAS PERFECT! Three simple words that sum up the outcome of a remarkable experience. From the moment I was prepped for cataract surgery in November, from the time I was measured and examined by your wonderful staff, and from my first meeting with you, I knew I was in excellent hands from the surgical procedure you were going to perform on my eyes.

Is cataract surgery just a routine operation these days? I needed cataract surgery and Peter Cornell was very highly recommended, so I went to him. Modern technology has made this surgery almost routine, but eyes are highly individual, so be careful! Careful I was in choosing Dr. Cornell, and careful he was in treating my case.
