Find Out About LASIK Care in Metuchen
LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) is a very popular option for people who want to enjoy clear, crisp vision while leaving their glasses or contact lenses behind. As the name implies, LASIK uses special lasers to reshape the cornea, the clear covering of the eye, correcting abnormalities in the shape of the cornea so patients see better without corrective lenses. In Focus Eyecare is a leading provider of LASIK care in Metuchen, offering comprehensive preoperative evaluations and postoperative care to help men and women feel confident in their procedure and in their vision and eye health. If you’re considering LASIK, here’s what you need to know.
How does LASIK work?
LASIK uses very precise delivery of laser energy to shave off super thin layers of your cornea, reducing or eliminating irregularities that interfere with clear vision. The procedure is performed right in your eye surgeon’s office on an outpatient basis, which means you’ll be able to go home shortly afterward.
How can a Metuchen optometrist help me decide if LASIK is right for me?
In general, LASIK can be a good choice for most people with refractive vision problems like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism (a condition that causes objects at all distances to appear blurry). But some people, like those with very thin corneas or very steep corneas or some chronic eye conditions, may not be the best candidates for the surgery. During your initial consultation appointment, your Metuchen optometrist will perform a comprehensive eye exam including a very careful examination and evaluation of your corneas, as well as a thorough review of your medical history. to determine if LASIK is a good choice for you.
