There are many people who live with some sort of vision impairment from day to day, whether it be nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. While plenty of these individuals are completely complacent while using glasses or contacts when it comes to seeing clearly, there are many who do not like the fact that they have to rely on these methods of vision correction. If you find that you feel much the same way, then we here at North Country Optical can provide you with a LASIK evaluation in Plattsburgh to discuss another alternative.
While glasses and contact lenses can be convenient, they can still be a hassle. Taking care of glasses, paying for replacements and making sure that they do not get broken can be tiresome. Switching between different frames depending on your needs can also be annoying and often difficult to deal with. People who have contact lenses need to maintain their lenses regularly, make sure that they are clean and must be careful not to tear up a new pair. Though there are plenty of people out there who do not mind having to do these things on a fairly regular basis, there is nothing unusual about wanting to break out of these routines. Here at North Country Optical, we can offer you an alternative to relying on glasses and contacts. With a LASIK evaluation in Plattsburgh, you can find out whether this surgery is right for you. If it is, it may change your life. LASIK surgery aims to reduce your reliability on corrective lenses by reshaping your entire cornea. The cornea is the clear portion of the eye over the pupil where light is filtered through the eye. The way that light is filtered through the eye determines how clearly images are received by the retina and processed by the brain. If LASIK can reshape your cornea so that images are seen clearer and crisper, you may not need to wear corrective lenses at all.
If you are interested in an alternative to glasses and contacts, then we here at North Country Optical want to help. Call us today to schedule your LASIK evaluation in Plattsburgh today to find out whether this surgery is right for you.
