LASIK_for_farsightedness.jpgAre you farsighted (see better at a distance) and wondering if LASIK will help?  The answer is yes, in most cases.  LASIK is approved by FDA for treatment for farsightedness. 

LASIK is a form of eye surgery that changes the curvature of the cornea with the use of lasers.  By changing the curvature of the eye, you change the way light enters the eye and changes the way your eye focuses.

There is a limit to the actual amount of farsightedness that can be treated by LASIK. The curvature and thickness of your eyes are some of the variables that determine whether or not your vision can be treated with LASIK.

A consultation and pre-operative eye exam with the expert staff at Great Plains Eye Specialists in Rapid City can help you decide whether LASIK is the right treatment for you.  For more information on LASIK for farsightedness, please call our office.
