Vision Correction

Vision-Correction

Due to technological advances, you have more options than ever before in vision correction procedures. Each option has one goal in mind…to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses, reading glasses, and contacts. Most of our Vision Correction options are performed while you recline and relax in our onsite AAAHC accredited surgical suite.

VISION CORRECTION SERVICES WE OFFER

LASIK and PRK are FDA-approved laser-assisted eye surgery procedures intended to reduce dependence on eyeglasses or contact lenses by reshaping the cornea so that light rays focus more precisely on the retina giving clearer vision.

Our Advanced Technology

At FSN Eye Center, we use advanced technology to individualize your vision correction. CustomVue Wavefront technology is groundbreaking because it has the potential to improve not only how much you can see, but also how well you can see. With custom LASIK, your eye’s ability to focus light is measured, and a 3-D map is created that demonstrates irregularities. The information contained in the map guides the laser in customizing the treatment to reshape your eye’s corneal surface so that these irregularities can be corrected. Traditional LASIK procedures cannot treat these irregularities.


ICL

ICL

The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) gives you the freedom to live a life uninhibited by the day-to-day demands of glasses and contacts. Your favorite activities and new adventures are on the horizon in usually a few short days. The Visian ICL procedure is a popular alternative to LASIK and PRK since it does not eliminate any corneal tissue and can be removed. During the procedure, the VIsian ICL is surgically implanted inside the eye, where it resides with no maintenance. For most patients, Visian ICL provides permanent freedom from eyeglasses or contact lenses.

The Visian ICL provides High Definition Vision, which is sharper and clearer than most other forms of vision correction. Patients with nearsightedness and/or astigmatism may be candidates for this next generation in vision correction.

Lasik

LASIK

LASIK is the most common and well-known vision correction surgery. During LASIK, your surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea to improve the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina. The surgeon will create a thin flap in your cornea and apply the laser treatment beneath.

PRK

PRK

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a laser eye surgery used to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. It is a no flap alternative to LASIK. During PRK, your eye surgeon uses a laser to deliver a pulsing beam of ultraviolet light on the surface of the cornea, not underneath a corneal flap as in LASIK, to reshape the cornea.

CLE

CLE

Clear Lens Exchange (CLE) may be a better option than LASIK, PRK, or Visian ICL refractive surgery for people with presbyopia (loss of near vision) and high hyperopia (farsightedness). Clear Lens Exchange replaces your eye’s clear natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens to correct your distance and near vision, reducing your need for reading glasses or bifocals.
