Laser Vision Correction
LASIK eye surgery is the most common option for improving vision in individuals suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. These types of eye conditions are brought as a result of the shape of the cornea. By using a high powered laser, an eye surgeon can alter the shape of your eye to create the proper dimensions. The result is improved vision. LASIK is a very safe procedure with good outcomes for most patients.
Correcting your vision through eye surgery is often possible through one of several types of surgical procedures. Brooklyn LASEK eye surgery, not to be confused with LASIK, is a type of refractive eye surgery done to improve conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This procedure is a combination of LASIK and PRK. When you see your eye surgeon, he or she may recommend this procedure.
PRK Vision Correction
Photorefractive keratectomy, also known as PRK, is a type of eye surgery used to correct many types of vision limitations. Those who suffer from nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism may see a significant improvement in their vision after having this type of eye surgery. As one of the first types of laser eye surgery used, it was used long before the more popular LASIK eye surgery procedure. However, it is still used and still offers a number of key benefits.
