For people who have any kind of vision impairment, being able to see clearly is a matter of constant concern. Luckily, there are plenty of ways in which a person can treat vision problems like nearsightedness and farsightedness. For the most part, people trust their vision problems to be resolved with regular use of prescription lenses of some sort, often relying on optical tools such as eyeglasses and contacts, but there are other methods as well. For people who are tired of relying on their optical tools, LASIK may be a viable option. Here at IC Laser Eye Care we can provide eligible patients with LASIK in Hamilton and change the way they see for the rest of their lives.
Most vision problems result from inherent imperfections in the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear, curved portion of the eye that rests just over your pupil. It acts very much like the lens of a camera, and in much the same vein, the clarity and curvature of an eye’s cornea will affect how clearly the images you see will be. A person with normal, 20/20 vision will have corneas that are more or less evenly dome shaped, though the more this shape differs, the more difficulty they will have focusing on objects around them at varying distances. For instance, a person with flatter corneas than normal will have some difficulty seeing things up close and a person with rounder or more conical corneas than normal will have difficulty seeing far away. Prescription lenses help by providing eyes with an additional lens with which to focus more accurately, but there are other ways in which you can achieve better vision. Here at IC Laser Eye Care we may be able to provide you with LASIK in Hamilton. LASIK surgery is a unique procedure wherein a precision laser is used to gently and accurately slice through your corneas and allow them to heal in a manner that will essentially reshape them. Once you recover from the procedure, you will be able to see clearly without the aid of optical tools.
LASIK in Hamilton can help you reduce your reliance on things like glasses or contacts in order to see clearly, so if you would like to learn more and make a step in the direction of changing the way that you see the world around you then call us here at IC Laser Eye Care today.
