Glasses and contacts are certainly effective ways to correct vision problems, and have been for a long time. However, anyone who has worn them for an extended length of time can tell you that they can be cumbersome, from slippage or breakage of glasses to the hassle of cleaning contacts daily and constantly replacing them. It used to be that there was no alternative, but now with laser eye surgery, there is.
The laser eye surgery procedure, also known as LASIK, involves creating a flap in the cornea (the transparent tissue covering the eyes) and then using a laser to reshape it. Reshaping the cornea corrects how light is focused on the retina. After the cornea has been reshaped, the flap is put back in its place where it will seal itself and heal.
A consultation with a laser eye surgery professional, such as an ophthalmologist like Dr. Al-Ghoul, will be required to determine whether a laser eye surgery procedure will be best for your case. To book a consultation, contact Clarity Laser Vision today.
