If you need glasses or contact lenses to get through your daily activities, you know the downside of having to deal with glasses or contact lenses daily. Whether it’s glasses or lenses:
There have been many advances in vision correction, so you can choose from many types of glasses or contact lenses, but that doesn’t change the fact that you still depend on them every day.
If your vision limitations are caused by a refractive error, you could consider the alternative of LASIK surgery. Refraction refers to the bending of light rays as they enter your eyes.
In a perfectly shaped cornea (the front surface of the eye), light rays bend at just the right angle to focus on your retina (the back inside surface where images are formed, as on a camera film). From the retina, the optic nerve picks up the image information and takes it to the brain, which interprets it, finds the right name for it, and tells you, “That’s a daffodil.”
Many of us have imperfectly shaped corneas. Maybe they’re too short, too long, too flat, too steep, or have tiny irregularities on them.
This causes the light rays to bend at the wrong angle.
LASIK vision correction surgery corrects the shape of your corneas, so that the light rays will bend at the correct angle and focus sharply on the retina. It’s a short, safe, and painless procedure and gives permanent vision improvement.
You might see advertisements for LASIK at “$399.99 per eye!” or some such amount. Those facilities may indeed offer a lower price, although you’ll probably incur extra expenses in the end (“hidden costs”). But they make up for the lower fees by cutting corners:
A highly trained LASIK surgeon like Dr. Khanna in Orange Country, California, will carefully select his LASIK patients and give them as much time as necessary to ensure the best possible results. If you qualify, your outcome will be astonishing. You’ll notice the difference immediately! You’ll wonder why you didn’t get around to freeing yourself up sooner from those glasses or contact lenses.
If you would like to learn more about LASIK and whether or not you’d be a good candidate for this procedure, please contact Dr. Khanna at the Institute of LASIK & Refractive Surgery today to schedule your LASIK appointment.
