LASIK AND PRK VISION CORRECTION IN COLUMBUS, OHIO

Vision Correction

Are you tired of having to reach for your glasses first thing in the morning or being dependent on your contacts? If you are interested in freedom from glasses and contacts we offer Lasik and PRK for vision correction and treatment of glaucoma and diabetes.

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. A mechanical microkeratome (a blade device) or a laser keratome (a laser device) is used to cut a flap in the cornea.

PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. PRK was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure.

Laser vision correction can provide you with equivalent or possibly even better vision than with just glasses or contact lenses alone.

While an expensive up front cost, over time, laser vision correction can save you money that you would have spent on replacement frames, or new contacts.

As of December 2013, it is estimated that over 2.8 million Americans have had a LASIK procedure since the beginning of 2011, with just over 916,000 American adults having an initial LASIK procedure during the 12 month period ending in December 2013. Every year, an estimated 600,000 people get LASIK, according to the FDA.

The best candidates for laser vision correction are adults with a stable prescription — their eyes aren’t worsening. Many medical conditions, including cornea disease, unstable diabetes and various types of arthritis reduce the chances of a successful procedure.
