LASIK in Bucks County

Bucks County LASIK

You can get better vision at all distances without depending so heavily on your eyeglasses or contact lenses. At IC Laser Eye Care, we are proud to perform Bucks County LASIK, the laser eye surgery that revolutionized the improvement of vision.

Your cornea is the part at the front of your eye where light enters. Your cornea is responsible for directing light to the retina. Under normal circumstances, that light will strike your retina at the center, or close to it. If so, your vision is normal. But nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism develop due to the curve of your cornea being such that light is instead directed away from the center of the retina. Corrective lenses work by altering the angle at which light travels between the cornea and retina. Our Bucks County LASIK reshapes your cornea to achieve the same purpose. And it's all done without traditional cutting and stitches. Instead, our eye surgeon uses a special tool that opens up a thin flap of corneal tissue to be opened, thereby allowing laser to reshape your cornea. The flap is then replaced. That's all there is to it. A few minutes per eye is typically all it takes. You will only need topical anesthetic in order to stay comfortable during our Bucks County LASIK. The best case scenario, and one which is not uncommon, is that you will be able to discard your glasses or contact lenses for good. But with a success rate of about 96%, you can feel confident that this procedure will allow you to rely far less on your prescription lenses at the very least. And the surgery can be updated in the future in order to account for changes to your visual needs.

Call our office and let us schedule you for a consultation. If you are a good candidate, you will be able to benefit from our Bucks County LASIK.

Eye Problems Common Among Seniors

Getting older doesn’t always mean failing eyesight, but presbyopia — age-related vision changes — is a common issue for many people over the age of 40. Other eye conditions have an increased risk as you get older, too.

Life After LASIK

The most common laser refractive eye surgery, LASIK generally frees you from the need for corrective lenses. Though you may notice immediate improvements in vision, full recovery takes up to six months.

Help! I Think I Have a Cataract

Cataracts result when the normally clear tissue of your eyes’ lenses becomes cloudy. Left untreated, they can lead to blindness, but cataract surgery is a safe, simple, and time-proven procedure.

Winter Eye Care Tips

The cooler months of winter can take a toll on your eyes, leaving them dry and irritated, even when it’s slushy and damp outside. Contrast that with heated air indoors, and you have a series of challenges to keep your eyes comfy.

Are Floaters a Concern?

You’ve likely noticed odd shapes in your vision, perhaps while looking at a clear blue sky: specks, strings, and squiggles that seem to move as you try to focus on them. They’re commonly called eye floaters. Sometimes, they can be cause for concern.
