Laser Vision Correction May Be Right For You
Innovations in technology are allowing more people to qualify for laser vision correction than ever before. Generally speaking, anyone who sees well with glasses or contacts and has not had a significant increase in their prescription in the last 12 months is probably a good candidate. People with certain medical conditions may not be good candidates.
The specialists at Vance Thompson Vision will help you evaluate your options with an extremely thorough eye exam and consultation, where we also get to know more about you, your expectations and your lifestyle. All of these factors play an important role in choosing the laser or implant vision correction technique that’s right for you.
The LASIK procedure is the right answer for most patients who are considering refractive surgery to improve their vision. However, in patients with higher degrees of nearsightedness or farsightedness, the cornea may be too thin to allow full refractive correction.
In these cases, surgical implants may be the best alternative. These special devices are placed in the eyes to improve their focusing ability.
