What Should You Expect?
Realistic expectations are important. The goal of laser vision correction is to reduce your dependence on glasses or contacts – it does not always create perfect vision. Some patients still need occasional reading or driving glasses after the procedure. There are many benefits to laser vision correction, but there are also risks. This is why we use the most advanced technology available to minimize risk and maximize accuracy. After evaluating your eyes, the experts at Vance Thompson Vision can help you make an informed decision.
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.
