It’s a new year and everyone is busy making new goals and resolutions. If you are one of the millions of people who experience vision problems related to myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, or cataracts, there is a convenient way to improve your vision to help attain your goals this year. Feinerman Vision Center offers one of the more popular corrective procedures, which is laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, also known as LASIK eye surgery. The procedure is quick, and should not take more than 30 minutes. The laser used for the surgery is a narrowly focused beam of light that can be accurately pulsed onto the surface of the eye to vaporize small amounts of tissue.
Feinerman Vision Center has the latest equipment in laser technology called an excimer laser from Technolas Perfect Vision. Excimer lasers use a mixture of gases that are excited through the use of electricity. This is a type of cool laser, meaning it does not generate heat. It is also very precise—critical to minimizing residual damage in surgery. The excimer laser is also very safe, and its targets do not absorb radiation that comes from the particles used to create the laser. Patients are usually awake and placed under a local anesthetic during the short procedure. Once the cornea, or surface of the eye, is replaced after surgery, it begins to heal almost immediately. Many common vision problems can be corrected with LASIK, such as: myopia, hyperopia, and a condition called astigmatism that occurs when the shape of the lens is oblong instead of round. Standard eyeglasses can limit your range of activities and scope of vision, while contacts require daily care and extra expenses such as yearly exams, solution, and eyedrops.
LASIK surgery provides you with a greater scope of vision without the inconveniences of daily cleaning routines. You can be sure your vision is at its best by having one of the county’s best doctors help you achieve your potential. Doctor Feinerman is the first ophthalmologist in Southern California to receive a certificate of excellence from Technolas Perfect Vision for advanced control eye tracking. According to Eye Doc News Ophthalmology online, advanced control eye tracking is an FDA-approved technology for LASIK eye surgery that allows lasers to compensate for any eye movement during a procedure. This technology maximizes the laser’s efficiency, while minimizing any discomfort to the patient. So why not try a hassle-free alternative that doesn’t require a daily cleaning routine and gives you a larger scope of vision?
The year has just begun, so it’s not too late for a fresh start with hassle-free clear vision. Enjoy the benefits of LASIK surgery today so you can begin making the most of your new year.
