Individuals who struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, an inability to read, or other vision problems can find relief through LASIK. The Eye Center, a Columbia, South Carolina eye clinic, provides top-quality laser eye correction surgery. Their team of qualified and highly skilled ophthalmologists is a pioneer in the field of corrective eye surgery.
Reliance on prescription eyewear can reduce the quality of life for many people, especially those who are highly active and play sports. LASIK can help reduce a patient’s need for glasses and contacts. In some patients, the use of glasses and contacts is eliminated.
A painless procedure with few risks, LASIK is recommended for patients aged 21 and older who have experienced little change in vision over the last year. While those with auto-immune disorders and other health concerns may not qualify, consulting an eye doctor can help a patient determine their eligibility.
During the procedure, an ophthalmologist uses a laser to remove microscope areas of tissue to reshape the cornea, which increases its ability to focus. As a result, Dr. Matthew Clary and his team of qualified ophthalmologists in Columbia, South Carolina, have noted that patients experience better vision within minutes.
LASIK is also beneficial to contact wearers who suffer from dry eyes or allergies. Such conditions can make wearing contacts difficult and unbearable. Patients who receive LASIK surgery also save money. Eyewear, such as contact lenses, glasses frames, and other expenses like contact solutions and visits to eye doctors, can cost money, which adds up over the years. LASIK is a one-time expense, reducing a patient’s need for corrective lenses, saving them money.
For individuals struggling with everyday tasks such as reading, typing, driving, working, and playing sports because of vision problems, LASIK surgery can drastically improve their quality of life. Corrective laser eye surgery is quick and painless. The risk of side effects is low, and patients can resume normal activities almost immediately.
