FREEDOM FOR YOUR EYES
Laser eye surgery is a long-term solution to vision correction. For many people, being free from glasses and contact lenses makes many activities and even daily living much easier. Not having the hassle of contact lenses and glasses makes everything from seeing the alarm clock in the morning to staying up late at night with friends less complicated. Life is fast and busy in the new millennium; laser eye surgery gives you one less thing to worry about. 98% of patients are satisfied with their vision after laser eye surgery.
Made For You
Our eyes are as unique as the rest of our body. Laser eye surgery is a premium procedure that takes your unique differences into account. Each laser eye surgery plan is customized to the patient for optimal correction. Astigmatisms and small differences in the surface of the eye are calculated and corrected giving you the best outcome. The following spectacle scripts are treated :
Short sightedness (Myopia ) : under -6.5
Astigmatism : under -4
Farsightedness (Hyperopia): under +2
If your spectacle refractive error is higher than the above , there are alternative corrective surgery solutions. The excimer laser removes tissue with microscopic precision , sculpting the cornea in a pain free procedure.
In general, the following criteria should be met before considering laser eye surgery:
• You are older than 21 years.
• Your vision has been stable for 2 years.
• You don’t have any medical conditions that would inhibit normal healing (auto immune conditions)
Having an allergy to contact lenses or pre-existing dry eye does not exclude you from considering laser eye surgery. If you are not a candidate for laser eye surgery we will advise you of alternative procedures including PRK.
