Can LASIK Improve My Peripheral Vision?

One advantage of LASIK eye surgery that isn’t often talked about is its ability to improve your peripheral (side) vision. When you are wearing glasses, your visual field is limited: you can only see clearly through the center of your glasses lenses. If you have a particularly high prescription, you are probably already aware of the fact that you need to turn your head in order to clearly see objects that are not right in front of you.

LASIK corrects the entire surface of your cornea, allowing for a complete range of vision. You will no longer have to worry about missing something that lies outside of your primary visual field. This can improve your driving safety, sports performance, and other common skills.

Using Custom WaveFront technology, Dr. Khanna can precisely map the unique contours, imperfections, and characteristics of your individual eyes. This ensures the laser treatment takes every flaw into account when correcting your vision. Some people walk away from LASIK eye surgery with vision that is even better than the 20/20 standard.

If you have further questions about LASIK, please contact The Khanna Institute today or call (877) 254-2662 to schedule a free LASIK screening. We serve patients in Beverly Hills, Westlake Village, and surrounding areas of Los Angeles.
