Bronx eye surgeon
Are you simply tired of having to reach for your glasses the first thing in the morning in order to be able to see clearly? If so, you may have already begun to think about getting LASIK surgery. This type of laser treatment will allow you to be able to see clearly without eyeglasses or contact lenses. If you would like to meet with our Bronx eye surgeon regarding getting LASIK surgery, we hope you will contact us today at our Vision Center of New York.
At our vision practice, our Medical Director is Dr. Gary R. Fishman. We are very happy to be able to provide LASIK surgery for all of our qualified patients. In order for our patient to have LASIK surgery, they must first be pre-qualified for this procedure. This is because LASIK surgery may not be successful for every patient, or, it may even make certain patients’ vision worse. However, once a patient goes through the pre-qualification process, our Bronx eye surgeon will be able to safely perform the LASIK eye surgery.
LASIK surgery will reduce the patient’s need to wear glasses or contact lenses; in fact, many patients do not need to wear corrective lenses at all after the treatment is completed. LASIK surgery is approved by the FDA, and is a safe and extremely effective treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During LASIK, a laser will be used to actually change the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear covering over the front of the eye. A tiny flap will be cut in the cornea with a laser, through which the surgery is performed. During your LASIK pre-evaluation, the thickness of your cornea will be measured to make sure it is thick enough to withstand this surgery. Once the flap in the cornea is cut, pulses from a laser will reshape the cornea so that the exact needed refraction will occur. If you would like to meet with our Bronx eye surgeon regarding this exciting laser surgery, contact our office today. Most patients do qualify for this surgery, and if they do not, they often qualify at a later time. To qualify, it is important that you are over 18 years of age and that you have not had any vision prescription changes over the past two years.
Are you tired of your vision care constantly getting in the way of your life? While eyeglasses and contact lenses are the simplest forms of optical care that can treat patients of all ages, these forms of care are not the right choice for everyone. In fact, these methods can work to hold patients back from career paths and life and even leading the active lifestyle many of us long for. Fortunately, advanced optical care provides more options than ever before. Your eyes can now receive care which can give you clear vision naturally with just one treatment. The only way to find out if laser vision correction is right for you is to book a consultation with your local 10461 LASIK surgeon at the welcoming offices of the Vision Center of New York.
10461 LASIK Surgeon
Laser vision correction is one of the most advanced methods of optical care in use today. In the past, LASIK was far more limited in the types and levels of vision correction which were able to be treated. Today, however, laser optical correction surgery can work to correct mild to severe levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Only patients who are 18 years of age or older are eligible for LASIK, and must not be pregnant or nursing for at least three months before surgery is scheduled. The way LASIK works to correct your eyes can only be understood with knowledge of how optical conditions develop. Vision problems are caused by imperfections in the shape of your corneal curvature. These deviations from the natural form of a flawless sphere cause blurred vision at a certain range. Laser vision surgery works to correct these problems by reshaping the corneal curvature in this simple yet effective procedure. Your consultation with your local 10461 LASIK surgeon works to answer any and all of your questions which you may have about your care. Your eyes must be perfectly healthy in any other form than your current vision problem, requiring numerous tests in order to insure LASIK surgery is right for you. The procedure itself requires a small incision into the epithelial layer, and only minutes beneath the laser to be completed. Local anesthetic and additional calming agents are used to keep patients comfortable for ease of care to achieve a lifetime of perfect vision.
For the very best in laser vision correction, be sure to visit your 10461 LASIK surgeon with the state of the art practice of the Vision Center of New York.
