LASIK Eye Surgery
Imagine being able to work, drive, read the clock, play sports – do just about everything – with much less dependence on your spectacles or contact lenses. A procedure called IntraLase (bladeless LASIK) could make this a reality for you. The result can be a dramatic change in your vision – and your lifestyle.
The success of LASIK depends mainly on your eyes. LASIK may be right for you if your vision has not changed for at least 1 year, you are over 21 years of age, and you have myopia (nearsightedness) or mild to moderate astigmatism. Although Hyperopia (farsightedness) is approved for LASIK, there may be more regression and future vision changes with these patients.
As with any surgery, there is risk. More common risks include over or under correction which might need more treatment, night glare, and the fact that results may not be long lasting. Although current data does not support any eye concerns with LASIK, long-term effects are not known. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a screening with our optometrist to determine your candidacy for this procedure, please contact our office at your earliest convenience.
