Our Rohnert Park LASIK represents the most modern and popular way to improve your vision. Here at Dr. Shipley & Associates, it’s not difficult to get all of the benefits that come from getting laser eye surgery. You have come to the right place, because our eye surgeon is highly skilled and experienced in performing this procedure. LASIK works by reshaping your corneas with lasers and thereby correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Those vision issues occur because the shape of your cornea has permitted light to strike your retina at the front or the back, instead of directly as with normal vision.
Start by scheduling a consultation at our office. You’ll find out if you’re a good candidate for our Rohnert Park LASIK. We will take a full medical history and discuss any risk factors of yours that might affect the success of the surgery. You will also get a complete eye exam, which includes checking your corneal thickness, internal eye pressure, and other diagnostic tests. Be sure to bring your eyeglasses or contacts with you. Stop wearing your soft lenses for three days before your visit, or three weeks in the case of hard lenses.
Eye drops will be administered as your local anesthetic so that you will be numb. Our Rohnert Park LASIK begins by opening a thin flap of your cornea with the laser. Our eye surgeon can then get underneath your corneal tissue to reshape it. The flap is then restored. No stitches and no bandages are required. You may experience some dryness in your eyes afterward, and this is perfectly natural. You will get medicated eye drops to combat that, and also to protect against inflammation or infection.
Our Rohnert Park LASIK is simple, safe, and very effective in correcting your visual deficiencies. Results are good in up to 96% of cases, meaning you can have full confidence in this surgery. Some patients are able to completely discard their glasses or contact lenses. And nearly all will find they have far less need for them than before. It’s an exciting prospect. And one you can take advantage of. Call us today and schedule an appointment.
