Your eyes are as individual as you are. As a result, your suitability for corrective laser eye surgery will need to be assessed in a free consultation before a decision can be made on the procedure.
Laser vision correction can treat a very high degree of short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism.
At your free consultation, one of our experienced laser-trained optometrists will perform an in-depth eye examination – including many additional tests not conducted during a standard eye examination – using state-of-the-art equipment to determine if you are a suitable candidate for corrective laser eye surgery.
If you need laser vision correction to see things clearly at a distance, you are short sighted. Without glasses or contact lenses your distance vision is blurred.
If you need corrective laser eye surgery to read or see things close up, you are long sighted. Depending on your age, you may have problems focusing on distant objects too.
Astigmatism occurs most commonly where the cornea is oval like a rugby ball instead of spherical like a football. Most astigmatic corneas have two curves; a steeper curve and a flatter curve. This causes light to focus at more than one point in the eye resulting in blurred, doubling of or ghosted vision. Many long and short sighted people often have a degree of astigmatism.
