What is Laser Vision Correction?
If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, laser
vision correction can reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses and contact lenses using an
Over one million laser vision correction procedures have been performed in more than 52 countries starting
more than a decade ago. Excellent results and an exceptional safety record have made this the procedure of choice
for most suitable candidates.
Laser Vision correction uses a cool laser beam of light to gently reshape the front surface of your eye. This
is an outpatient procedure, with the treatment itself taking only a few minutes. Patients are usually back at
work within one to three days.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates are at least 18 years of age, in good general health, and have good eye health with no diseases
such as cataracts or glaucoma. A screening with your eye doctor is the best way to determine if you are a candidate
and what your probable outcome will be.
What kind of results can I expect?
Although no one can promise patients "perfect" or 20/20 vision, most laser patients no longer need glasses or contacts
to drive, play sports, watch movies and TV, or participate in careers requiring excellent vision such as police and fire departments.
Even those who are severely nearsighted, astigmatic, or farsighted can be treated - and achieve outstanding results.
