Laser Eye Surgery | Tampa, St. Petersburg, ClearwaterLaser eye surgery is capable of correcting a wide variety of eye problems. In many cases the results are so good that the patient is able to stop wearing glasses after having a procedure done. Needless to say, laser eye surgery, also known as the LASIK procedure, is very popular.
Many people choose lasik eye surgery to correct nearsightedness or farsightedness, and it’s great for fixing these conditions. Laser surgery will also correct presbyopia – the condition that makes it hard for older people to read things at close range. All of these problems involve the eye’s ability to focus, so the basic principle for repairing them is the same. The laser is used to reshape the cornea so that light entering the eye is properly focused instead of blurry. Recovery is quick, and many patients notice an improvement the next day. Full results become evident after several days.
Other Applications of Laser Eye Surgery
There are many other uses for laser eye surgery. It can even be used to correct conditions that were once considered either hopeless or hard to repair. Glaucoma, dry eye syndrome, diabetic eye disease, floaters, astigmatism and even optic nerve disorders are often suitable targets for the laser. This development allows laser-using surgeons to offer hope to more people than ever before.
