If you’re familiar with LASIK, the laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, you know it’s a great way to reduce or eliminate your dependence on prescription lenses. It’s not for everyone, but here at 2020 Vision Place, we offer consultations to determine if you are a good candidate for Tamarac LASIK. You will be able to ask any questions that you have, and our optometrist will do an exam and make sure that you are prepared to move forward.
The surgery works by reshaping your cornea so that light will strike your retina closer to the center, which is the basis of more ideal vision. When you not seeing as well as you want to at any distance, it’s because light is instead striking toward the front or back of your retina, which is the result of a misshaped cornea. Because of the use of lasers, no stitches or bandages are needed. Tamarac LASIK has a success rate of 90%, which means you can be confident in the results. It’s also painless and the healing time is very quick. Most patients begin to experience better vision the next day or even later the same day as surgery. Many people find that they don’t need their glasses or contacts at all anymore, but at minimum, you should be able to find you need them far less than you used to. Another benefit is that as your vision changes over time, adjustments can be made to the surgery, even years after Tamarac LASIK was first performed.
Our Tamarac LASIK consultation lets you take the necessary time to consider your decision, and to be fully informed about all the pros and cons as they relate to your unique situation. Any surgery, even one done with lasers and as safe and effective as this, should not be just rushed into. Let us help you to feel assured that you’re doing the right thing. Call our office and we will schedule a consultation for you.
