If you have any kind of vision impairment, then you are not alone. Millions of people live with some sort of vision impairment, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism that require that they wear some kind of visual aid in order to see clearly. While many people are content relying on prescription eyeglasses or contacts, there are also people who find this necessity to be tedious at times. If you feel the same way, then you will want to know more about the LASIK consultations and Tamarac eye care that our optometrist here at 2020 Vision Place can provide for you.
Most vision impairments are caused by imperfect or irregular corneas. The cornea, is the clear, curved part of the eye that rests just over the pupil. Acting very much like the lens of a camera, the way that the cornea refracts the light that passes through it determines how clear the images you see happen to be. An eye with perfect 20/20 vision has a cornea that is perfectly dome shaped, whereas a cornea that has a vision problem will differ. For instance, a person who happens to be nearsighted will have corneas that are more conical in shape, someone who is farsighted will have corneas that are flatter than usual, and an individual who has astigmatism may have corneas that are a bit of both in places. What visual aids like prescription glasses and contacts do to help these conditions is provide an additional magnified lens for the eye in order to make up for the difference in the lens shape. But out optometrist here at 2020 Vision Place may be able to provide you with an alternative option. With complete Tamarac eye care, our optometrist can check up on your overall eye health and determine whether laser eye surgery may be right for you with any LASIK consultations.
