LASIK Eye Surgery Life-Changing Vision Correction
LASIK has become one of the most well-known eye surgeries in recent years, and for good reason. The significant vision improvement that LASIK can achieve allows many patients to do away with glasses and contact lenses altogether. Imagine being able to drive, work on the computer, and play with your children without the need for corrective lenses.
At Pearl Street Eye, our LASIK surgeons use the most advanced laser technology and the most modern techniques to correct our patients' sight. If you are considering LASIK surgery, we invite you to contact us today.
How Does LASIK Work?
Most common vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are caused by misshaped corneas. The cornea refracts light through the eye and onto the retina. When it is irregularly shaped, light does not refract properly, and your vision suffers.
During LASIK surgery, an eye surgeon uses a laser to reshape the corneal tissue. When the eye's tissue is corrected, the patient's vision becomes clearer.
How Is LASIK Performed? A Procedure Timeline
LASIK surgery takes about 15 minutes per eye.
Other Featured Procedures
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is another form of laser eye surgery that serves as an alternative to LASIK. Similar to LASIK, PRK is a corneal surgery that uses a laser to reshape the corneal tissue. However, instead of folding back a corneal flap, the front portion of the lens is removed entirely. This can better suit patients with thin corneas.
Cataracts are common in older adults. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens that causes the vision to become blurry. During cataract surgery, one of our eye doctors will use a laser to expose the natural lens. Then, the lens is broken up and removed using ultrasound technology. Finally, the doctor will replace the lens with an advanced prosthetic.
Another alternative to LASIK for patients with nearsightedness or astigmatism is Visian ICL™ treatment. The Visian ICL is a prosthetic lens. During surgery, one of our eye surgeons can safely insert the ICL behind the iris. This is a unique corrective surgery because it does not involve the removal of any natural tissue.
I truly enjoyed my eye exam with Dr. Cushing, I have never been happier with an eye exam than the one I had with him. He nailed my contact lens prescription. I will definitely be referring all my friends to Pearl Street Eye.
THIS OFFICE IS UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP
I saw Dr. Cushing recently for an eye exam and it was incredible.
The new technicians and doctor took great care of me and my eyes.
I am so glad this place has finally reopened.
Protect Your Eyesight Why Regular Eye Exams Are Important
Even if you are satisfied with your vision, it is still a good idea to undergo regular eye exams with highly trained optometrists. During a basic eye exam, our doctors may notice signs of medical conditions that you might not have noticed. For example, glaucoma is a condition that can lead to blindness, but it usually does not affect your vision until it is too late to properly address.
When you join us at our office for the first time, we encourage you to come prepared with a summary of your medical history and any corrective lenses you are currently using.
