LASIK / PRK
For over 20 years, the doctors at Eastside Eye Physicians have performed thousands of refractive surgical procedures that help free our patients from glasses and contacts.
Refractive errors of the eye that are amenable to surgery include:
- Nearsightedness (myopia)
- Farsightedness (hyperopia)
- Astigmatism (irregular curvature of the cornea)
While glasses and contact lenses may work well for many people, a significant number of individuals either have intolerance to contact lenses or find that wearing glasses and contacts interferes with their appearance, lifestyle or quality of vision. Refractive surgery is a good alternative for these people. Our doctors will discuss the pros and cons in depth with you, noting that the goal of any refractive procedure is to decrease dependence on the use of glasses and contacts.
