Most focusing problems are due to the shape of the eye. If the cornea is too steep or too flat in curvature, this can create short-sightedness or long-sightedness and other distortions in vision.
What we do with laser vision correction, is use a special laser to smooth off and reshape the surface of the eye to correct those focusing problems.
You may think that LASIK or Vision Correction is expensive, and while it isn’t cheap, you might be surprised to learn how much money you save when compared to a lifetime of buying glasses or contacts. LASIK will prove a superior investment over the course of 20 years, and you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.
*This is just an estimate and may vary from each individual’s lifestyle.
If you have a high prescription, thin or abnormally shaped corneas or persistently dry eyes, Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs) may be just the thing.
ICLs are flexible plastic lenses that augment your natural lens and correct the eye’s refractive – or focusing - issues. They are practically invisible and, once implanted, are designed to continue to do their job for decades.
Even better, many patients like the idea that ICLs are reversible/removable if desired.
