Vision Correction: What Surgery is Right for You?
Glasses…contact lenses…daily cleaning solutions…
These are the daily hassles that many people endure in order to see clearly and function in their daily lives. These visual aids help people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism. However, if you are very active, wearing lenses can hinder your performance and prohibit you from participating in certain activities. The ongoing maintenance of glasses, frames and contacts can also be a costly nuisance.
At Great Plains Eye Specialists
We have helped thousands of people gain the freedom to live life without corrective lenses through different types of vision correction surgeries:
- LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis): corrects refractive errors of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism often helping people achieve 20/20 vision
- PRK (photorefractive keratectomy): corrects refractive errors of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism with similar results of LASIK for people with thin corneas
- EVO ICL™: corrects refractive errors of nearsightedness and astigmatism with the insertion of a tiny lens inside your eye
- Reading Glasses Alternatives: several options to correct presbyopia: the gradual stiffening of the eye lens that occurs to most people over age 40
- Custom Lens Replacement (Clear Lens Exchange): corrects severe farsightedness or presbyopia by removal of your eye lens so it can be replaced with a clear lens for improved vision
When it comes to vision correction
A surgery that is effective for one person may not be right for you – even if you seemingly have the same eyeglass prescription. The right surgery for you will depend on several factors:
- Corneal thickness
- Presence of other eye diseases or eye conditions
- Type of refractive error
- Strength of your glasses prescription (refractive error)
- Tear film assessment
- Medical condition
- Vision goals
