At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, we offer comprehensive ophthalmology services to for residents of Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, and surrounding areas of Denver Colorado.
Laser Vision Correction: What Procedure is Right for You?
Glasses…contact lenses…daily cleaning solutions…
Dr. Alan Margolis has helped thousands of people gain the freedom to live life without corrective lenses through two types of vision correction procedures:
- LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis): corrects refractive errors of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism often helping people achieve 20/20 vision
- PRK (photorefractive keratectomy): corrects refractive errors of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism with similar results of LASIK for people with thin corneas
When it comes to vision correction, a procedure that is effective for one person may not be right for you – even if you seemingly have the same eyeglass prescription. The right procedure for you will depend on several factors:
- Corneal thickness
- Presence of eye disease or eye conditions
- Strength of your glasses prescription (refractive error)
- Tear film assessment
- Medical condition
- Vision goals
The only way to find out if clear vision without glasses is a possibility for you is by scheduling a free LASIK Consultation with us. You can learn if having LASIK or PRK in Lone Tree is right for you. There is no obligation and you will leave our office knowing more about your own eye health. The decision on how to proceed will be entirely up to you.
