Imagine being able to work, drive, and play sports without having to depend on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK may make this a reality for you. You and your eye doctor can determine whether you’re a good candidate for LASIK.
Clear vision depends on how well the cornea and lens project light onto the retina. Light rays must be refracted (bent) to focus on the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive nerve layer that lines the back of the eye, which transmits what we see to the brain.
If the cornea or eye shape is abnormal, vision can become blurry because light does project properly on the retina. An abnormal cornea shape can be corrected by LASIK, which, in turn, corrects the vision problem. Refractive errors can include myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism (an irregularly shaped cornea which causes blurring). These can all be fixed with LASIK surgery.
The goal of LASIK surgery is to eliminate a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Please contact us today at 920.727.8280 to set up your free consultation!
