HOW TO KNOW IF LASER EYE SURGERY RIGHT FOR YOU?
Laser eye surgery can be an effective and long-term solution for refractive errors. Simply put, you can finally be free from your glasses or contact lenses. But first, you have to know if this type of eye surgery is right for you. It’s completely normal to have some apprehension about laser vision correction, and you probably have a ton of questions. At Burlington Optometry, our optometrists are happy to answer all of your questions and concerns and get the answers you need before you make your decision.
You will first receive a comprehensive pre-operative exam to make sure you are a candidate for the surgery. Many factors can determine candidacy for laser eye surgery such as refractive error, corneal thickness, pupil diameter, eye dryness, or any ocular disease that would eliminate a person’s ability to have LASIK surgery. Book an appointment to find out if you’re a good candidate.
LASIK EYE SURGERY
An ultra-thin flap is created on the eye’s surface during LASIK corrective eye surgery. The surgeon then uses a computer to adjust the laser for your particular prescription. After laser energy is applied to reshape the eye, the flap is replaced to serve as a type of natural bandage.
CUSTOM LASIK SURGERY (HIGH DEFINITION VISION)
Wavefront LASIK creates a highly individualized laser correction of your eye’s surface, guided by precise analysis of vision errors that occur as light rays travel through your eye. Post-operative visits ensure that no complications arise and your vision will be the best it could be for the rest of your life. Should you not be a candidate, the doctor will give advice as to the best alternate way to correct your vision.
