LASIK Surgery Los Angeles
LASIK is a popular laser eye surgery that is used to improve or correct vision in people with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Our Los Angeles LASIK surgery expert can help you determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
The cornea is the clear part of the eye that allows the light passing through to be clearly focused on the retina in the back of the eye. If the cornea is not properly shaped or has suffered from certain age-related issues, it can lead to refractive errors in which the light is unable to be focused properly. LASIK is used to reshape the cornea and improve vision. Our expert in LASIK surgery in Los Angeles can provide you with further information about the procedure so that you can decide if it is right for you.
Los Angeles LASIK Surgery
Our Los Angeles LASIK surgery expert often recommends LASIK for patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism or have other refractive errors because it offers numerous benefits. More than 95 percent of patients enjoy dramatically improved vision after their LASIK procedure, and the results are virtually immediate. You will not need bandages or stitches, and numbing drops will keep you comfortable and pain-free as your eyes heal.
Many patients no longer need glasses or contacts at all after undergoing LASIK, and most have a dramatic reduction in their dependence on contacts and glasses. If our expert in LASIK surgery in Los Angeles determines that you are a candidate for the procedure, we will examine your eyes carefully. Measurements will be taken to determine your corneal thickness and refraction, and your cornea will be mapped and your pupils dilated. You will then meet with the surgeon to map out your treatment plan and schedule your appointment. You may need to stop wearing contacts for a few days or a few weeks before surgery, and your eyeglass prescription may need to be reviewed.
If you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism and you want a permanent solution, we can help. Contact our eye doctor in Los Angeles today to learn more, or to schedule your appointment.
