Patients for whom glasses or contact lenses don't work to correct for their myopia, often consider a LASIK procedure. The curvature of the cornea (the front surface of the eye) is modified to reduce or eliminate the nearsightedness
The surgeons we refer to use the most advanced laser technology to reshape the cornea so that rehabilitation time is minimal and risk for complication is low. Older LASIK technology is less expensive to perform but results tend to be less predictable. Eye Care Associates work closely with offices that perform LASIK and often do the post-op care following the procedure. If you have questions, feel free to call us. A few simple diagnostic tests can help determine if LASIK is right for you.
