To ensure that you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery, one of our experienced doctors will perform a thorough complimentary LASIK consultation and exam.
Our process is designed to help you make the best possible decision for your vision. From consultation through post-procedure follow up, our doctors and specialists are with you every step of the way.
LASIK is a quick, painless, reliable surgical option for correcting a number of vision-related issues. They include:
Nearsighted people have trouble seeing at a distance but tend to have better vision up close – hence “nearsighed.“ With this condition, the cornea is curved too steeply, and sometimes the eye itself is irregularly-shaped. Either way, the end result is that images get focused in FRONT of the retina, rather than ON the retina itself. When treating nearsightedness, the LASIK procedure evens out the curvature of the cornea which returns the focusing of images to the retina, where it belongs.
Astigmatism is the inability to focus clearly at ANY distance, due to an irregular or misshapen cornea. With astigmatism, light rays focus at different points on the retina causing images to overlap and blur vision. Just like with nearsightedness or farsightedness, LASIK can correct these issues by reshaping the cornea and forcing light to focus on the retina, thus restoring perfect vision.
