LASIK surgery yields excellent results, with many patients achieving excellent vision, sometimes better than 20/20. LASIK allows patients to see clearly without wearing corrective lenses, and technological advances in eye care have made the surgery safer and more effective than ever before. #LASIK #LaserVisionCorrection
LASIK has advantages over glasses and other kinds of corrective lenses, though some patients may not be good candidates for laser eye surgery.

If you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, #LASIK surgery can correct your refractive error through the removal of a small amount of your corneal tissue. #LaserVisionCorrection

Astigmatism refers to issues with the lens of the eye or the cornea that cause blurry vision. #LASIK, other #lasereyesurgery options, and corrective lenses can treat it.  #LaserVisionCorrection

#DidYouKnow after the LASIK procedure, vision usually begins to improve the morning after the treatment! #LaserVisionCorrection

#LASIK is extremely effective, but it's important that patients understand the potential risks involved with the procedure. LASIK complications are thankfully not that common thanks to advances in #laservisioncorrection technology and refinements in surgical technique.

If you suffer from presbyopia and do not qualify to undergo other procedures, #monovision can help improve your eyesight with contact lenses, refractive surgery, or intraocular lenses.

iLASIK surgery utilizes an IntraLase laser to create the corneal flap rather than a microkeratome blade. #LASIK

The buildup of internal eye pressure can damage the eye's optic nerve, which acts as the major transmitter of visual information to the brain. Intraocular pressure is referred to as #glaucoma and can eventually lead to vision loss if left untreated. #GlaucomaTreatment

#PhotoRefractiveKeratectomy or #PRK also treats nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but does not require the creation of a corneal flap. #LaserVisionCorrection

#DidYouKnow #cataractsurgery is the only way to eliminate cataracts and involves removing your affected lens and replacing it with an artificial lens, or IOL.

Patients affected by #keratoconus may experience blurry or distorted vision, difficulty seeing in levels of low light such as at nighttime, sensitivity to bright light, sensitivity to glare, rapidly changing eyeglass prescriptions, and clouding vision. #Opthalmology

#PRK, or #photorefractivekeratectomy, is designed to reduce or eliminate your dependency on corrective eyewear.
