Refractive Surgery Consultation

There are many choices when it comes to correction of refractive, or focusing , errors of the eye. Sometimes it is glasses or contact lenses and occasionally surgery is the best option.

LASIKLASIK, one form of refractive surgery, is an option for vision correction without needing to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser to significantly reduce near and farsightedness as well as astigmatism.

Recently, other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called Phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

If you are interested in refractive surgery, please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery. If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon who is most appropriate for your case. In addition, we provide post-operative care for refractive surgery.
