Laser Vision Correction is an elective procedure that is probably one of the most emotional decisions you will ever make. Keep in mind that routine surgery is only routine when done routinely. We encourage you to make an appointment with us here in Seattle , Washington for consultation with knowledge you will gain on this website.
A review of the anatomy of the eye and some history on refractive surgery can help to define your understanding of laser vision correction. The eye is just like a camera. Because of differences in the cornea , the lens or just the length of the eye we may be nearsighted (myopic), farsighted (hyperopic), have an astigmatism or just need reading glasses (presbyopic). With advances in technology and the skill of our surgeons we are able to make microscopic changes in the cornea to refocus your eye.
Laser vision correction has become the most popular surgery to date for many reasons. With the right surgeon, equipment and team the procedure can be relatively painless and extremely successful. The technology developed more than 2 decades ago when IBM needed to etch information on a microchip. When this laser technology was applied to corneal tissue it was realized how precise the excimer laser could be.
In the comfort of our outpatient facility in Seattle , Washington we use only topical numbing drops for the less than 10 minutes per eye procedure. A tiny cool beam of laser is applied to the front surface of the eye to gently reshape the cornea. As you are escorted out of the laser suite most patients already notice improved uncorrected vision. Typical results are good vision in a day and great vision in a week.
Let us decide if you are a good candidate for laser vision correction and then we can customize your treatment plan.
