Eye conditions seriously affect your lifestyle, and come in many different forms including astigmatism, myopia, farsightedness and nearsightedness. Fortunately, new advances in refractive surgery make it possible to completely fix some problems and greatly improve others. With LASIK, laser surgery is used to precisely repair areas of the eye that control light refraction to the retina. During the procedure, the ability to focus the vision is restored as a thin flap is pulled back from the front of the eye and necessary corrections are made. After LASIK, the eye heals quickly on its own.
Here at Red Deer Eye Care, we ensure that your surgery is as successful as possible as we walk you through the entire process. LASIK is an increasingly popular alternative to contact lenses or glass, and we are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve the process for our patients. As refractive surgery advances, we are excited to provide these options to our patients.
