One of the most frequently performed laser vision correction procedures available, LASIK uses laser energy to reshape the cornea and allow for a sharper focus on objects at near or far distances. LASIK can also help patients suffering from astigmatism. This innovative treatment can significantly improve your vision and reduce or eliminate your reliance on eyeglasses and contact lenses.
PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy offers many of the same benefits as LASIK and can serve as an alternative for patients who may not be candidates for LASIK. This treatment also utilizes a laser to reshape the cornea for better vision. Patients with corneas that are too thin for LASIK may qualify for PRK vision correction.
Refractive Lens Exchange
Refractive Lens Exchange involves the replacement of the eye’s natural lens with an artificial lens implant. Often used in cataract surgeries, Refractive Lens Exchange procedures can also benefit patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction. Advanced intraocular lens implants can improve a variety of vision conditions to help you focus more clearly on near or far objects without heavy dependence on corrective eyewear.
