Lasik Eye Surgery
Are you tired of struggling with uncomfortable contact lenses or fumbling with glasses? LASIK is an option that you can consider. Utilizing the Wavefront Technology for Custom LASIK and IFS Intralase (Blade-Free) technology, our highly skilled surgeons have helped thousands of patients achieve outstanding results.
LASIK, which stands for laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is a non-invasive eye surgery that reshapes the inner cornea so that images focus correctly on the retina to improve your vision. The procedure is effective for many patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.
Cataracts are one of the leading causes of vision impairment in the United States. A natural part of aging, a cataract is the clouding of the lens inside your eye. If you are over 55, there’s a good chance that you may have some form of cataracts. Cataracts form slowly over a long period of time, many people suffer from this condition without ever realizing it.
When the lens becomes clouded, it prevents lights and images from reaching the retina. Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing through a foggy window. If left untreated, cataracts can become larger and denser, causing sight to become worse. Eventually, the entire lens can cloud over and cause blindness. More than three million cataract procedures are performed each year in the United States alone.
If you think that you may have cataracts, contact our office to schedule an evaluation.
