Custom LASIK Vision Correction
In astigmatism, the cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball. Patients with astigmatism have distorted vision because light rays are refracted unequally through the misshapen cornea. Of all myopic patients, 50% or more have astigmatism as well. Astigmatism is very precisely corrected with Laser Vision Correction, and especially with Custom Wavefront.
Hyperopia is the medical term for farsightedness. Hyperopia occurs when an eye is too short for the cornea's curvature, and light rays entering the eye focus behind the retina. The term 'farsighted' means that you are able to see 'far' objects clearly without correction, but objects nearer appear blurry
Presbyopia is the normal process of aging, where the natural lens of the eye loses some of the flexibility that characterizes a younger eye. As a result, the eye has more difficulty adjusting from distance vision to close vision. This normally occurs around the age of forty and is usually corrected with the aid of reading glasses or monovision.
A procedure that is painless, taking a picture of your eye that maps the surface of the cornea, also a part of our complimentary consultation.
A painless test performed to measure the corneal thickness, also a part of our complimentary consultation.
The cornea is the clear, front part of your eye that is reshaped by the Excimer Laser in Laser Vision Correction.
