Our procedures include:
- LASIK and iLASIK with the IntraLase™ method

The Wilmer Eye Institute is repeatedly ranked as one of the top eye care centers in the nation in surveys by U.S. News & World Report and Ophthalmology Times. Wilmer has been a leader in laser vision care. We developed some of the earliest lasers for vision care and pioneered laser removal of corneal scars and laser treatment for corneal diseases. Wilmer participated in the first clinical trials of laser correction for nearsightedness, farsightedness and wavefront technology and continues to participate in clinical trials for approvals of new, advanced excimer laser software and technology. Wilmer is helping to develop the next generation of laser vision correction procedures.
Wilmer's laser surgeons are full-time faculty members of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and are highly trained cornea experts who can help you understand laser vision correction and its impact on your long-term visual health.
