Reasons to Consider LASIK Surgery
Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, better known as LASIK surgery, uses a laser to adjust the shape of your cornea. By reshaping your cornea, the refractive error in your vision — your ability to focus light onto your retina — is minimized or corrected completely. The offices of Dr. Evans and Dr. Carter Optometry have been helping Chula Vista residents see better for over 30 years with refractive surgery. You may be a good candidate for this option if you suffer from any of these conditions:
- Myopia: Nearsightedness, in which distant objects can't be seen clearly.
- Hyperopia: The opposite of myopia.
- Astigmatism: Blurry vision in either or both of your eyes.
You need a thorough eye exam to determine whether you will benefit from eye surgery. Some patients do and others don’t, so it’s best to discuss this option thoroughly with a medical professional.
