Living with vision impairment can be a bit of a hassle. Some people can easily get annoyed with having to rely on glasses or contact lenses to see clearly and comfortably. If you are tired of taking care of glasses frames or constantly ordering contacts, then LASIK surgery may be the right solution for you. Here at Park Professional Eyecare we can provide any interested and eligible patients with LASIK surgery in the Bronx. If you are interested, simply call us to schedule a consultation to learn more about LASIK and whether LASIK surgery is right for you.
Vision impairments, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, are all caused by irregularities in the shape of the eye’s cornea. The cornea is the clear portion of your eye that is just over your pupils. The cornea acts very much like the lens of a camera, only on your eye. Just like a lens, the cornea is the portion of the eye where light is filtered and its shape can greatly affect how images are received by your retina located at the back of your eyes. Different vision impairments affect the cornea differently. For instance, patients who are nearsighted have corneas that are more conical, making it difficult to see objects at a distance. Patients who are farsighted have corneas that are flatter and have issues seeing things that are close up. LASIK surgery can easily correct such issues by reshaping the cornea using a laser, making it smoother and more dome shaped to reduce your reliance on prescription lenses. If you are interested in LASIK surgery in the Bronx, visit us here at Park Professional Eyecare for an exam and consultation to determine whether LASIK surgery is a possibility for you. A thorough eye exam will help you and our LASIK surgeon whether your eyes are suitable to the surgical procedure.
