What Does LASIK Correct?
Both nearsighted, farsighted and astigmatism patients can benefit from LASIK.
- With nearsightedness, the goal is to flatten the too steep cornea
- With farsighted patients, a steeper cornea is desired
- Our VISX excimer laser can also correct astigmatism by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal-round shape; our laser has an iris recognition monitoring system which ensures your astigmatism is treated to your precise degree
The goal with LASIK is to remove small, yet precise, amounts of corneal tissue to achieve the desired corneal shape so light entering the eyes will land directly on the retina (the back of the eye).
If you are frustrated with the daily hassles of wearing glasses or contact lenses, having LASIK vision correction by Dr. Frank W. Bowden, III, might help you achieve clear vision. In fact, many patients achieve 20/20 or better vision.
