Are you tired of wearing glasses all the time or wrestling with contacts daily? How would you like to wake up and be able to see you alarm clock clearly?
Most people have probably heard about LASIK, the refractive eye procedure that can help treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It has become a popular procedure for more people to get the eyesight they have always wanted without the need for glasses or contacts.
LASIK is great for persons over the age of 21 years old, who have healthy stable eyes, are in good general health and who are not pregnant or nursing. During your consultation, we will sit down with you to discuss your lifestyle, goals, your expectation of treatment and perform a full dilated exam to find out if LASIK is the right procedure for you.
The most frequently performed laser vision correction procedure is LASIK. LASIK stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. The surgery is quick and painless and designed to change the shape of the cornea so when light enters the eye it is projected onto the retina properly for excellent vision. The surgeon lifts a thin flap of tissue on the outer surface of the cornea, then the cool beam of the excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying cornea. The flap is then replaced and bonds without the need for stitches.
