Laser Vision Correction
Laser vision correction is performed by Ophthalmic Partners for many types of vision problems experienced by patients in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the surrounding communities.
WHAT IS LASIK?
LASIK surgery is the most common solution used to correct refractive errors. Custom PRK (Surface Ablation) is similar to LASIK but uses some modifications for how the laser is applied to the corneal surface. Patients who are not good candidates for laser vision correction have other options, such as the phakic intraocular lens, to treat vision problems with implants. Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is effective for older individuals with presbyopia. Corneal inlay surgery may also be used to improve vision.
These safe and effective technologies have been used for many years, and the procedures are fast and virtually painless. Laser vision correction continues to be the most common elective vision procedure performed. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis and takes about 15 minutes per eye. Vision improvements can be seen within 24 hours.
Laser vision correction technology continues to advance, with new developments and improvements added regularly. Contact Ophthalmic Partners to book a consultation and learn how laser vision correction can improve your eyesight. A thorough eye exam will be performed to evaluate eye health, and the curvature of your cornea will be mapped. If you are a suitable candidate for laser surgery, the eye doctor will explain the procedure, including any preparations needed. Laser vision correction can dramatically improve your quality of life, with most people achieving 20/20 vision after surgery.
