Wearing eyeglasses or struggling with contact lenses for your nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism can become a hassle after a while and many people wish they could just wake up one day with perfect vision? Well, it’s not just a dream any more people are now able to shed their glasses and take out their contact lenses forever and see clearly. At Park Professional Eyecare Dr. Ralph Paternoster, OD can help patients regain near perfect vision without any corrective lenses through laser eye surgery such as Country Club LASIK.
Out of the various types of laser eye surgery for vision corrections the most popular and effective form of refractory surgery is LASIK vision correction. Country Club LASIK uses a laser to precisely change the shape of the patient’s cornea, which is the curved front of the eye that focuses light on the retina. The reshaped cornea allows the entering light to form a clear image on the retina. The LASIK procedure is an outpatient procedure that is done in the office and it takes only a few minutes to perform the actual procedure. Depending on your individual needs LASIK can be performed on one eye or both eyes during the same session. LASIK is extremely safe and most people achieve 20/20 vision after the procedure.
An ophthalmologist performs refractory eye surgery, but Dr. Paternoster will co-manage the pre and post-op care. First he will conduct an evaluation of your vision needs to see if LASIK or some other form of refractory surgery is best for you and discuss all the details with you. Our doctor will coordinate the details of the procedure with the surgeon. Within a day or two most following the procedure the patient’s vision will be fully corrected. Dr. Paternoster will follow-up by monitoring your eyes and vision after the surgery. Make an appointment for a to see how you can have clear vision without glasses or contacts.
