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)
"The staff was extremely professional and exceeded every expectation I had. I’ve worn glasses for ten years and now have 20/10 vision. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has ever thought about getting the procedure done."- T.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2018
"I had a cataract in my left eye, Dr. Wilmarth performed laser surgery to remove it and replaced my lens with. Restora brand multi-focal lens. The results were amazing I had 20/30 vision the day of surgery and better than 20/20 within 1 month. I was so pleased with the results that I choose to have the lens in my right eye replaced with the same Lens! Same results as the left eye 20/20 vision...it's so nice to be DONE with glasses forever!! Dr. Wilmarth and his entire team are very professional, efficient, extremely competent and friendly. I am very confident in their abilities and recommend them for any eye surgery you may need."- L.H. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2018
"An easy and professional Lasik procedure! A great experience for a medical operation and you can't ask for better hands."- D.R. / Facebook / Jan 17, 2018
"Proud to say I can now see 20/15 [that's better than 20/20]! I must be dreaming; I have worn glasses since I was 5 years old and I feel like a brand new me. I came from a negative 6! Thank you Dr Wilmarth!"- J.R. / Facebook / Oct 20, 2017
"Fantastic experience throughout the pre-op, the procedure itself, and the couple of post-op appointments I've had so far. I went in for moderate to severe hyperopia (far-sightedness), so I would get heavy eye fatigue and lose focus when reading text or small print for any longer than a few minutes. After the Lasik, I now have 20/15 visual acuity and can read for hours without eye fatigue. While it is a significant financial outlay, I was not looking for the discount-chain "99 cent store" type of place to operate on my eyes; I was looking for the best of the best, and I can confidently say that is what you get if you go to Wilmarth Eye and Laser. Thank you again doc!Nick"- N.R. / Yelp / Oct 19, 2017
