What is it?
Laser vision correction surgery, such as LASIK and other similar treatments, has made huge advancements in recent years and has grown in popularity thanks to its safe, effective approach. Laser vision surgery is no longer feared as a procedure that may cause pain or is experimental, but one that can restore vision and change a person's life in a matter of minutes. Laser vision procedures can eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses and allow a person to have crystal clear vision for years. Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Stephen Wilmarth has over 35 years of experience in assessing the eye to determine if laser vision correction is an option for treatment, as well as many years of experience performing laser treatments such as LASIK. If patients are considering permanent vision correction, it’s important to see an experienced LASIK surgeon. Please call Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center in Roseville, CA today to receive a complimentary consultation.
Objective of the Procedure
Overall, the objective of laser vision correction is to restore a person's eyesight to the highest level possible and eliminate the need for corrective lenses. Before receiving treatment, Dr. Wilmarth will first determine the overall health of the eye and check for diseases, infections, or other conditions, as well as measure the thickness of the cornea and discuss any previous surgeries or eye operations. Issues found will be treated prior to performing any kind of laser procedure. Patients must also be over 18 years of age and possess stable vision for at least a year prior to the treatment. Laser vision correction addresses these specific issues that are common among patients who wear glasses and contact lenses:
- Nearsightedness (myopia)
- Farsightedness (hyperopia)
- Loss of near vision with age (presbyopia)
