Are you tired of using prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses to see clearly each day? Do you feel your eyes getting weaker and weaker year after year? Are your eyes constantly irritated from your lenses or glasses? If these are questions that apply to you, you should schedule an appointment with our Plattsburgh optometrist here at North Country Optical to learn more about LASIK corrective eye surgery. LASIK stands for laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis. LASIK is a two-step surgical process. The first step involves creating a flap in the cornea, and then using a special excimer laser to reshape the cornea, which then improves your vision and makes it so that you no longer need to use contact lenses or eyeglasses to see clearly each day. The amazing excimer laser is so precise that it can reshape living tissue without causing any damage at all. The surgery is designed to remove only the cells that are necessary to correct your vision, and leaves everything else in tact. LASIK has been used for many years now, and an incredible amount of patients’ lives have changed as a result. Many patients now have 20/20 vision because of their LASIK surgery.
If LASIK sounds like an option you are interested in, you will be pleased to know that our Plattsburgh optometrist co-manages LASIK surgery. You can visit us at North Country Optical for an evaluation so that we can see if you are a good candidate for LASIK, and if you are, we will we there to work with you both pre-op and post-op. If you end up not being a viable candidate for LASIK, our Plattsburgh optometrist also recommends the Visian ICL, or implantable collamer lens, which is a lens that is permanently implanted over your natural lens and permanently corrects your vision that way. Our Plattsburgh optometrist would be happy to make more personalized recommendations for you after a visit to our office.
