If you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, a combination, or even all of those vision concerns, you can continue to rely on your corrective lenses, or you can take advantage of LASIK in Clermont
. It's a highly effective, quick, and safe procedure that is done without traditional cutting. Here at Claremont Family Eyecare, we want our valued customers to benefit from the state-of-the-art LASIK surgery that reshapes your cornea and gives you longterm vision improvement.
The cornea is at the front of your eye. If its curve is not shaped properly, the result is that when light is directed to the retina at the back of your eye, it will strike not at the center, which is associated with normal vision. Instead, light will hit toward the front or back of the retina, leading to challenges seeing at various or even all distances. Glasses and contacts work by redirecting the light so that it results in improved vision. Well when you get LASIK in Clermont, the idea is the same, except that your cornea is surgically altered so that it is curved more ideally. Most patients who are at least 18 years old and not pregnant will be good candidates for it. You can come in to our optical store and be pre-screened so that you will know if you qualify to have this eye surgery done. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have. The procedure itself begins with a thin flap of your cornea being opened and folded back so that the surgeon has access to reshape the corneal tissue with the laser. Afterward, the flap is put back and resealed. No bandages or stitches are needed. Improved vision usually is noticed the next day or later the same day as having LASIK in Clermont
The success rate is about 96%, which is very impressive. You can either reduce greatly your need for glasses or contacts, or be able to discard them completely. Call us and arrange an appointment to come in and be evaluated.
