LASIK - candidacy qualifications/eligibility in Hamilton

LASIK Hamilton

Many people are perfectly happy wearing prescription glasses or contacts to help the quality of their eyesight on a day-to-day basis, but not everyone falls into that category. If you happen to be one of these people, then you may be interested in LASIK surgery. For more info on LASIK Hamilton, we here at IC Laser Eye Care can help.

Most vision problems are caused by imperfections in the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear tissue that rusts just over your pupil. The curvature of this tissue affects the quality of your eyesight, a bit like the lens of the camera affects the quality of the image produced. If the cornea is too flat then objects close-up become difficult to see, and if the cornea is to conical then objects and the distance or too difficult to see. That is a simplified version of how the shape of the cornea can affect eyesight, but there are different types of imperfect shapes and different ways in which the shape of the cornea can affect a person’s eyesight in a specific way. Regardless, prescription lenses aim to correct these problems by providing the eyes with an additional set of lenses. LASIK, on the other hand, looks to change the shape of the cornea itself. Here at IC Laser Eye Care, one of our eye specialists can take a close look at your eyes and determine whether you happen to be in eligible candidate for LASIK Hamilton.

Since this specific type of laser surgery involves slicing through the cornea, people with certain conditions may not be able to undergo the surgery because of scarring or previous injuries to their eyes. This is necessary to determine before moving further with laser surgery. If you were interested in learning more about this procedure as well as whether you happen to be a candidate for LASIK Hamilton, call us here at IC Laser Eye Care.
