Being able to see clearly and comfortably on a daily basis is something that people with any kind of vision impairment need to consider every day of their lives. When it comes to attaining that perfect 20/20 vision, prescription lenses come to the rescue. With glasses or contacts, people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, can finally see clearly, but not everyone likes having to rely on these tools every day. If you feel the same way, then you might want to consider Port Richmond LASIK
. You can meet with our ophthalmologist here at IC Laser Eye Care to discuss LASIK surgery and whether or not this treatment option is right for you.
Port Richmond LASIK
When it comes to vision impairment, there are thankfully many options available when it comes to attaining perfect vision regardless of any issues. Most vision impairments result from irregularities with the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear part of the eye that rests just over the pupil. The cornea acts very much like the lens of a camera does, and just like a camera lens the curvature has a lot to do with the quality of the images that are produced or perceived. An eye with perfect vision will have a cornea that is perfectly dome shaped, whereas an eye with a vision impairment will be different. For instance, a person who is nearsighted will have corneas that are more conical in shape than usual, and a person who is farsighted will have corneas that are flatter. There are areas in between, but any differences in the shape of the cornea will result in blurry vision to some degree. Prescription glasses or contacts aim to correct this blurriness by providing an additional lens for the cornea with which to see clearly. But here in Port Richmond, LASIK
aims to correct the issue by completely reshaping your cornea in order to produce clear vision. Here at IC Laser Eye Care, our ophthalmologist can examine your eyes and determine whether or not this surgical procedure is right for you.
