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
"Recently I underwent successful cataract surgery performed by Dr. James Tucker. I couldn't have been more pleased with Dr. Tucker's professionalism, his willingness to address my questions and concerns, and the empathy and care he demonstrated throughout the process. Dr. Tucker is a credit to his profession and a skilled practitioner I would highly recommend."- R.B. / Yelp / Apr 03, 2019
"I can read the back of a medicine bottle, emails on my computer, the TV 10 feet away and street signs a quarter mile away, all without the glasses I’ve always worn. This miracle is due to the fact that Dr. Wilmarth removed my cataracts and implanted lens. I’m so thrilled to see vivid colors again. This was a life-changing event for me. Dr Wilmarth and the staff was wonderful."- L.W. / Yelp / Aug 26, 2020
"Excellent service and surgical team. Dr Wilmarth is a very skilled MD. I went from wearing a glasses prescription of -5.00 in both eyes to 10/15 visual acuity which is better than 20/20! Being legally blind one day to no longer having to rely on glasses or contacts is a dream come true. I was definitely nervous about lasik correction but the staff made me feel comfortable every step of the way. The surgical technicians, staff, office and surgery center are all pristine! Thank you Dr Wilmarth!"- J.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
