If you are tired of dealing with the daily problems associated with glasses or contacts then perhaps you should consider LASIK here with us at Dr. Shipley & Associates where we can offer you free LASIK consultations right here in Santa Rosa. Living day to day with any kind of vision impairment can be a hassle. Whether you wear glasses or contact lenses, either one of these vision correction methods requires some degree of daily upkeep and regular maintenance. For those who wear glasses, they can cause glare and discomfort, may not always sit on your nose comfortably or need repairs. Contact lenses can become uncomfortable after periods of time and can easily become dry in certain climates. Not only that but they are subject to rips and tears as well.
There is a solution to all of these issues. LASIK surgery can help provide you with the vision you want, giving you perfect vision and lessening your reliance on the use of vision correction devices such as glasses or contacts. Most vision impairments – such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism – are caused by an irregularity in the shape of your cornea. For example, people who are nearsighted have corneas that are too conical whereas people who are farsighted have corneas that are flatter. The cornea is the working lens of the eye and filters light best when it is more perfectly dome shaped. Any differences in shape will alter the way that light is filtered through the eye, resulting in blurry vision and the inability to focus properly. LASIK surgery aims to correct vision problems by reshaping the cornea with the use of the latest laser technology. If you are interested in undergoing LASIK, we here at Dr. Shipley & Associates can provide you with a free LASIK consultation to see of this procedure is right for you.
LASIK unfortunately is not for everyone. Patients who have weak corneas or have suffered from certain eye injuries may not be able to have LASIK surgery done which is why a free LASIK surgery consultation here with us in Santa Rosa at Dr Shipley & Associates is so beneficial to you.
