Cornea and Laser Refractive Surgery – New York
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most commonly performed vision correction surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Garrana uses an excimer laser to re-shape the cornea so that images are focused to the correct spot on the retina. The success rate for LASIK is excellent and most patients achieve 20/15 vision or better. LASIK involves little or no discomfort or pain either during the procedure or through the recovery process, and eyesight improvement is almost immediate. Patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia are all candidates for LASIK. If you want to decrease your dependence on corrective lenses, LASIK might be the solution for you.
Dr. Garrana and her staff of expert clinicians provide a range of eye care services, including general eye exams. Regular and thorough eye exams are an important part of maintaining good overall eye health. With regular eye exams, your doctor can detect problems sometimes before noticeable symptoms begin to occur. Early detection gives you and your doctor the best chance to successfully treat these problems. Additionally, eye exams are necessary to prescribe proper corrective lenses or contacts, and serve as a way to determine eligibility for laser refractive surgery. Regular eye exams are the key to preserving good vision for life.
