Here at Dr. Shipley & Associates, our expert Petaluma eye doctor and the rest of our dedicated team of staff love to help our patients see as clearly and as comfortably as possible. One great way to improve your vision and end a lifelong reliance on expensive prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses is to invest in LASIK from our Petaluma eye doctor at Dr. Shipley & Associates. LASIK stands for laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis. It may sound complicated, but it is simply a laser surgical procedure that safely and effectively reshapes your cornea in order to correct the refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism that keep you from seeing clearly. With LASIK, you can perfect your vision to the point, in many cases, where daily use of contact lenses and/or prescription eyeglasses simply is no longer needed. Patients love the freedom this gives them in their everyday life, as well as the massive savings they accrue as a result. LASIK has advanced significantly in recent years, and is safer and more effective than ever before. If you are interested in getting LASIK for yourself, the first step is to schedule an appointment with our Petaluma eye doctor here at Dr. Shipley & Associates so that we can determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. We will sit down and discuss the process with you, and will also perform a thorough examination in order to get a better understanding of your current level of vision quality. From there, we can proceed with a more individualized treatment plan.
