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.
Updegraff Laser Vision has an excellent vision correction alternative for people with moderate to severe nearsightedness, particularly those with dry eyes or thin corneas.
The EVO ICL is an implantable collamer lens. It is a soft lens, like a contact lens, that is surgically placed into the eye. The lens works similarly to LASIK and PRK in that it permanently corrects your vision. Unlike these procedures, however, it doesn’t require cutting or reshaping of the corneal tissue and it is removable.
Good candidates for this procedure are people ages 21 to 45 who are nearsighted and have had stable vision for a year. The ICL is made to help correct patients with low myopia (‑3 diopters) to high myopia (‑20 diopters). It can be a preferred option for people with severe dry eyes or thin corneas.
FDA-approved, ICLs have been available for 10 years. To date, more than 500,000 ICLs have been implanted in patients worldwide, with excellent visual outcomes. The patient satisfaction rate to date is 99%.1
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.
