If you have a refractive vision error, you know how difficult it can be to find the right form of corrective eyewear. While you can wear contact lenses or eyeglasses to correct your vision, more and more people are opting for LASIK surgery. Exquisite Eye Care provides Houston, TX families with effective LASIK corrective surgery that can deliver perfect eyesight. LASIK surgery eliminates the need to wear glasses or contact lenses while giving you 20/20 vision in each eye.
How LASIK Surgery Works
LASIK can correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, which occur when the eyeball or cornea is abnormally shaped in one or both eyes. The improper shape causes the eye’s natural focal point to miss its marks, which results in vision problems. Our eye doctor can check each eye and ensure you are a candidate for LASIK. The cornea must be big enough for us to remove parts with a laser to restore the focal point and perfect vision. LASIK involves using a small laser to reshape your cornea.
Short Recovery Period
LASIK takes just a few seconds in each eye and does not cause extensive damage or injury to the eye. The recovery time is fast, painless, and mostly amounts to nothing more than a little eye discomfort. Our optometrist can prescribe eye drops to relieve any minor eye discomfort that you might experience. After recovery, your vision will be improved and is often is 20/20 in each eye.
Who Can Get LASIK?
Our optometrist can do a relatively simple check of the corneal tissue in each eye to ensure you have enough for the LASIK procedure to sculpt. If one or both eyes do not have a large enough cornea for the laser to manipulate, then a LASIK procedure cannot correct the focal point and give you perfect vision. Corrective lenses are a viable alternative option. If you do have enough corneal tissue, then our eye doctor can schedule the procedure at your convenience and deliver a truly life-changing procedure.
