Eye surgery in Philadelphia

How well do you see right now? If you're wearing glasses or contacts, the answer is probably a positive one. What if you could get the same level of vision without them, or at least without having to use them all the time? At IC Laser Eye Care, we offer that with our LASIK eye surgery in Philadelphia. Improve your vision at all distances significantly, and stop depending on your corrective lenses so heavily.

Refractive issues include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. What causes them? Changes to the curve of your corneas result in ineffective transfer of light to your retinas. The light should hit at the very center, or close to it. Instead, you end up not being able to see up close, far away, or at all distances in the manner that you used to. Your eyeglasses or contact lenses correct that by altering the angle that light travels between your cornea and retina. Our eye surgery in Philadelphia, though, changes the curve of your cornea, creating a long term solution. With LASIK, light will not land a lot closer to the center of your retinas. For some fortunate patients, there is no longer any need at all for prescription lenses. For everyone else, they will only be needed occasionally. The difference is noticeable. LASIK is suitable for many people, but anyone 18 and over should come in for an examination and consultation to determine eligibility. Our eye surgery in Philadelphia features no stitches, no bandages, and no scarring. About 96% of the procedures are successful. Best of all, the entire thing is done right here at our office, with just a few minutes per eye being required. You should notice better vision by the next day, or even later the same day as surgery.

You might be an ideal candidate for our eye surgery in Philadelphia. To make sure, book an appointment at our office. Call us today.

Is Glaucoma Hereditary?

While doctors don’t fully understand the reasons why increased intereye pressure affects the optic nerve, they have established that certain genes are related to glaucoma, so the serious eye condition can run in families.

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.
