Vision Correction Procedure
What Procedure is Right for You?
Glasses…contact lenses…bifocals…reading glasses…
These are the daily hassles that many people have to endure in order to see clearly. These visual aids help people who are nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism or need reading glasses (presbyopia). However, if you are very active, wearing lenses can hinder your performance and prohibit you from participating in certain activities. Wearing reading glasses can show your age and simply be a nuisance.
At Charleston Cornea & Refractive Surgery we have helped thousands of people gain the freedom to live life without corrective lenses through a variety of vision correction procedures including:
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.
KAMRA™ Inlay: corrects presbyopia to reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses.
When it comes to vision correction, a procedure that is effective for one person may not be right for you – even if you have the same eyeglass prescription. The right procedure for you will depend on several factors:
- Corneal thickness and shape
- Presence of eye disease or eye conditions
- Strength of your glasses prescription (refractive error)
- Tear film assessment
- Medical condition
- Vision goals
The only way to find out if clear vision without glasses is a possibility for you is by scheduling a free LASIK Consultation with us. You can learn if having LASIK, PRK or the KAMRA Inlay in Charleston is right for you. There is no obligation and you will leave our office knowing more about your own eye health. The decision on how to proceed will be entirely up to you.
