Here at IC Laser Eye Care, we’re dedicated to helping you to achieve the very best vision that you’re capable of, in the most efficient manner possible. When you have typical refraction issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, the most common way of correcting them is with a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, for a more permanent solution that lets you enjoy improved vision without the need for corrective lenses, turn to our Philadelphia eye care and our LASIK and other refractive surgery options.
By far, the most popular procedure for correcting eyesight is LASIK. It has helped millions of people just like you, and it boasts a success rate of over 90%. It allows our eye surgeon to eliminate traditional cutting, along with stitches and bandages. It’s an extremely safe process that begins with numbing your eyes with anesthetic eye drops so that you are experiencing maximum comfort during the surgery. You will be awake for it, and it is done on an outpatient basis, taking less than an hour from start to finish. A small flap of corneal tissue is opened so that access can be gained to the area to be worked on. Our Philadelphia eye care reshapes your cornea with the laser, after which the flap that was opened is then closed and sealed. It’s really that simple. Your cornea will now direct light to the center of your retina, which is associated with more normal vision, instead of toward the front or back, which is when you have difficulties seeing at various or even all distances. Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK, so we are pleased to also offer Phakic Intraocular Lenses, Intrcorneal Ring Segments or Intacs, Wavefront/Zyoptix, Lasek, Conductive Keratoplasty, and Photorefractive Keratectomy, as well as LASIK with IntraLase.
Schedule an examination and consultation with our Philadelphia eye care to find out which refractive surgery is ideal for you. Soon you could be experiencing a level of vision that you couldn’t imagine right now.
