Laser Vision Correction
- LASIK Brooklyn
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 on because of the shape of the cornea. By using a high-powered laser, an eye surgeon can alter the shape of your cornea to improve your vision. LASIK is a very safe procedure with excellent outcomes for most patients.
Several types of vision-correction eye surgery are available at our Brooklyn office. LASEK eye surgery, not to be confused with LASIK eye surgery, 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. During your consultation, your eye surgeon 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 developed, it has been in use much longer than the more popular LASIK procedure. However, it is still used and may offer several key benefits.
