How Can We Provide the Eye Care You Need?

After coming in for an eye exam, our team will talk about the vision correction options that can help you. We offer a wide range of eye care services to meet this need. Vision correction is a term used to describe a variety of surgical procedures and techniques we have available to help improve your vision quality. Some of the services we offer are below.

LASIK Vision Correction

LASIK, which stands for, "Laser-assisted in Situ Keratomileusis" is one of the vision treatments we offer. LASIK is a type of laser eye surgery. In it, we safely change the shape of the cornea. The odd shape of your cornea is often what causes reduced quality of vision. This may help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Many people using LASI no longer need to wear prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.

When you come in to see our team, we'll talk about how well this type of vision correction can help you. We will need to perform a full eye exam to ensure you qualify for this procedure. We'll talk about the process and what you can expect. LASIK only takes a few minutes to complete but offers life-long benefits to many patients.

Low Vision Therapy

Low vision is a type of vision loss that cannot be improved upon significantly. Once your vision is lost, it cannot be restored. However, those who have low vision may be able to get some help. We often diagnose patients with this condition if we can no longer improve your vision through eyeglasses, contact lenses, surgeries, or medications. This is often the end stage for those suffering from conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, degenerative eye diseases, macular degeneration, optic nerve atrophy and glaucoma.

Low vision therapy can give you some resources, though. We'll work with you to help you to learn how to get the most out of your limited vision. Our goal is to ensure you can do as many tasks as you would like to, such as read and write.

Corneal Reshaping

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, is another type of vision correction that is available to those who do not wish to pursue the use of LASIK or otherwise does not qualify for it. This procedure can fix many types of vision loss by reshaping your eye overnight. You'll wear a specialized contact lens that shapes the cornea to improve vision. During the day, you will not have to wear contact lenses or glasses but will have near perfect vision. Ortho-K is only used at night and has a limited length of time to offer this benefit.
