LASIK in Philadelphia

LASIK in Philadelphia

If you've grown weary of wearing glasses or wearing contacts all the time, and you would like to have a more permanent solution for your nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism, the answer is our LASIK in Philadelphia. It's safe, quick, and effective. And with a success rate of over 95%, you can have confidence in the results of it. At IC Laser Eye Care, this is our specialty. Depend on us for expert care.

This laser eye surgery will not necessarily eliminate your need for corrective lenses entirely. It may, but what you can be sure of is that it will allow you to rely far less on them. Our LASIK in Philadelphia reshapes your cornea so that it directs light more efficiently to your retina. The reason that you need glasses or contacts in the first place is that the shape of your cornea is causing light to land toward the front or back of your retina, or in the case of astigmatism, to refract more in one direction than the other. Correcting the shape of your cornea makes your eyesight more normal. So are you qualified to get our LASIK in Philadelphia? You need to be at least 18 years old and there are certain other points of eligibility that will be determined from taking a full medical history. One such point is that you can't have had any previous corneal surgery. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes per eye. Thanks to lasers, there are no stitches and no bandages required. You'll start to notice vision improvement by the following day, or possibly even later the day of surgery.

Now that you know that such a great option is available, why not benefit from it. Call our office and we will book an appointment for you to come in for an initial examination and consultation.

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.
