DO YOU QUALIFY FOR LASER VISION CORRECTION?

PRK, LASIK and their laser vision correction variants are all FDA approved for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia for patients that wish to be unburdened of a dependence on glasses and contact lenses. A comprehensive, thorough examination is effected during your initial consultation to insure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. The exam rules out anything that may disqualify you from benefiting from the treatment. Some conditions that may disqualify a patient include but are not limited to: a visually significant cataract, unusually thin, or unusually shaped corneas, retinal conditions that hinder one’s visual acuity and are not correctable with glasses or contacts, etc… Once all of these have been ruled out, the diagnosis can be limited to either nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia. These manifest as a consequence of the shape of the eye, where the eye is too long or too short (nearsightedness and farsightedness, respectively), or where the cornea is shaped more like a football than a baseball (as is the case for astigmatism). Presbyopia, the age-related inability to focus on near that develops as we reach our fifties can also be addressed with laser vision correction. Dr. Belmont will discuss the LASIK or PRK procedure that is best suited for each patient and explain in detail what to expect during and immediately following the treatment as the patients heal post-operatively. There is no sensation in the course of undergoing a LASIK or PRK procedure and typically, most patients are able to return to work and driving in a matter of days.
