While contact lenses and eyeglasses are reliable vision correction options, 20/20 Image Eye Centers offers consultation services for another great alternative in the form of LASIK. Your eye doctor explains that this procedure is a surgical way to reshape your impaired cornea, resulting in improved visual acuity.
Here are some of the many benefits LASIK provides:
Sharper Visual Acuity
LASIK involves using a laser excimer to create a thin flap on the surface of your cornea. Your eye specialist will then retract this flap and remove or rearrange the unnecessary tissue causing your refractive error. Afterward, your eye doctor will position the flap back in its original place, and you’ll enjoy sharp vision.
LASIK is a relatively short procedure, taking approximately 15 minutes per eye. After a day or two, you will already experience improvements in your vision. At 20/20 Image Eye Centers, your trusted eye doctor will refer you to our partner ophthalmologists and LASIK surgeons upon confirming through evaluation that you’re a good LASIK candidate.
Improved Quality of Life
LASIK is a great way to regain independence over your activities of daily living. With your improved eyesight, you’ll have an easier time accomplishing your daily tasks. You’ll enjoy naturally sharp vision since you won’t have to rely on your prescription eyewear.
Studies have shown that LASIK effectively prevents the worsening of most refractive errors, giving you many years of improved vision. It’s also positively associated with a reduced dependence on corrective eyewear, contributing to its high approval rate. Don’t forget to visit your eye doctor for a follow-up eye exam sometime after the procedure so we can evaluate its effectiveness.
