Need For Glasses
Wearing glasses can sometimes be frustrating. You may need to wear glasses to allow you to see properly. They are often needed when the light rays are not focused onto the retina. Depending on the severity, you may need glasses some of the time or all of the time. As we get into our 40’s, most of us need glasses for reading and other up close activities.
Contact lenses are an option to reduce your need to wear glasses. It is a lens that sits on the eye that allows you to see clearly. Contact lenses need to be fit properly by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist. At the Eye Surgery Institute, we provide full service optical services.
Dr. Cindy Wang and I can perform a comprehensive eye examination and a contact lens fitting. We can spend the proper time needed to teach you how to insert and remove the contacts and how to care for them properly. Sometimes you may need to try different types and brands of contacts to find the ones that work best for you.
Lasik is an elective surgical procedure and the goal is improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses. We use a laser to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. The purpose of Lasik is to reshape the cornea so that the light rays entering into the eye are focused onto the retina.
Determining if you are a candidate for Lasik requires a comprehensive eye examination. Dr. Cindy Wang and I will perform a thorough exam to determine the general health of your eye and if you are a candidate. I am a board certified ophthalmologist and will perform your surgery.
