Determining If LASIK Eye Surgery Is Right for You
How does Lasik Work?
LASIK eye surgery permanently reshapes the cornea with a laser to allow light to focus clearly on the retina. Lasik can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with great accuracy. Lasik can reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses and contacts, and can be life changing!
Why Progressive Eye Care for Lasik?
Trying to make sense of refractive surgery jargon can be confusing. We’ll take the time to explain the terminology – things like the difference between “conventional LASIK” and “custom LASIK” and PRK. We’ll tell you about “blade free” Intralase and help you understand the risks and benefits of all these options.
Because we're not a Lasik-only practice, we provide unbiased evaluation and recommendations based on what is best for You! When you decide to move forward, we coordinate with our surgeons to ensure the best outcomes possible.
If our advanced screening indicates you are a good candidate, we arrange your surgery with one of our affiliated surgeons. We provide pre-operative testing, post-LASIK follow-ups, and ongoing care after surgery.
Other Surgical & Non-Surgical Options
Those who are not LASIK candidates may be candidates for other vision correction alternatives. PRK is an option for some. In other cases, cataract surgery is a better options. Others may benefit from “clear lens extraction” or “intra-cameral lens implants” which place lenses inside the eye. With these options, many who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery. New multifocal lens implants are also available which offer an option for people to replace their bifocal glasses.
Ortho-K is a non-surgical approach to vision correction which is another great alternative to Lasik.
