Many people live with some kind of vision impairment. Vision problems – such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism – can easily be treated with the use of vision correction. Though glasses and contacts are very commonly used, many people wish they did not have to rely on such methods in order to go about their day comfortably. If you feel the same way, then we here at Dr. Shipley & Associates can provide any interested patients with Santa Rosa laser vision correction, or other eye surgeries and corrections.
Laser vision correction can change your life. Laser surgery aims to improve vision by reshaping the cornea. Vision impairments are often the result of an irregularly shaped cornea to begin with, so altering its shape can help limit your reliance on glasses or contacts. The cornea acts as the lens of the eye. Light is refracted as it passes through the cornea, so the shape of the cornea will affect how light travels through the eye and is received by the retina. If the cornea is at all misshapen, the resulting image will be blurry. For instance, an individual who is farsighted has a cornea that is flatter than its intended dome-like shape. Because the shape of the cornea is flat, objects that are nearer to the individual will appear blurry and out of focus. Alternatively, someone who is nearsighted will have a cornea that is more conically shaped and will have difficulty seeing objects at a distance. Santa Rosa laser vision correction with our doctors here at Dr. Shipley & Associates aims to fix such conditions by reshaping the cornea and restoring it to its intended dome-like shape.
If you are interested in any eye surgeries or corrections, our eye doctors here at Dr. Shipley & Associates will gladly meet with you for a preliminary exam. They will determine whether you are eligible or healthy enough for any laser vision correction or other eye surgeries. Our Santa Rosa laser vision correction has never been easier. Our doctors will do their best to determine whether you are eligible for the procedure and will oversee the entirety of your surgery in order to guarantee the best results.
