Individuals consider the option of refractive surgery and EPILASIK for a variety of very personal reasons.While EPILASIK does not promise perfect vision, it does hold the promise of reducing one’s dependence on contact lenses or glasses, which will allow many people to more freely pursue their hobbies, sports activities or career options.
Sports Enthusiasts – from weekend warriors coming on bikes from Camarillo,Fillmore,OjaiOxnard,Port Hueneme ,Santa Paula,Simi Valley,Thousand Oaks,Ventura, to professional athletes from Moorpark , many wish to be reduce their need for contacts or glasses for safety or performance reasons.
Mothers of Young Children – many women express concern about the safety of their children if they should lose their glasses or contact lenses — while playing in the surf or trying to escape a burning building, for example. EPILASIK may even reduce the anxiety produced by simple tasks, like finding one’s way through the house at night.
Frequent Travelers – for those who spend a considerable amount of time on the road, being less dependent on glasses or contacts promises numerous advantages, from safety (ability to read evacuation signs) to convenience (less to pack).
We remind all patients that EPILASIK is a surgical procedure, and like all such procedures, there are risks involved. We also suggest that you review information you find elsewhere through additional research and then discuss this information in depth with your ophthalmologist.
