  • Can I get Lasik on one eye?

    Unilateral (one eye) LASIK is an option. However, the real question is why is the vision "bad" in just one eye. A host of conditions can affect vision in just one eye, and not all of them are improved with LASIK. READ MORE

  • Can Lasik fix myopia?

    Thre are limits, but yes LASIK is most commonly offered to correct myopia (also known as nearsightedness) READ MORE

  • Redness of eye won’t go away

    You need to be examined by an eye doctor, preferably one who focuses on anterior segment or cornea problems. READ MORE

  • How long is an eye retina exam?

    A retina exam requires the eyes to be dilated. If this is the first time you are seeing this doctor, the exam process will likely take at least one hour, sometimes longer. If there is a problem you could be there much longer. READ MORE

  • Can you wear contacts for myopia?

    Myopia is the most common reason patients wear contact lenses. READ MORE

  • Is Lasik surgery safe for the retina?

    Your LASIK pre-op exam should include a dilated retina examination to ensure you have no particular risks. Sometimes, the LASIK surgeon will ask a retina specialist for "clearance" before scheduling the LASIK surgery. READ MORE

  • Why do I see better with my glasses than contacts?

    Hard to definitively answer without more clinical information. One common reason is low astigmatism, which is not corrected by contact lenses and is corrected by glasses. READ MORE

  • Can Lasik fix astigmatism?

    Astigmatism can be corrected by refractive surgery such as LASIK or PRK. There are limits to the degree of astigmatism that can be corrected. READ MORE

  • Can keratoconus be stopped?

    The FDA-approved epithelium on Corneal Crosslinking procedure has been shown to be safe and effective in significantly slowing and, in many cases, stopping the progression of Keratoconus and reducing the need for corneal transplant. In most cases, the earlier the treatment is appropriately applied, the more successful the outcome of preserving functional vision. you can find more good information on the National Keratoconus Foundation website https://nkcf.org. READ MORE

  • Which is better for cataract surgery laser or traditional?

    Traditional cataract surgery and Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) are both safe and effective. For many patients, there is no clinically significant difference in outcome. For some patients, FLACS can be helpful in reducing or eliminating low degrees of astigmatism. For patients electing to have multifocal IOLs, FLACS is sometimes helpful in improving the predictability of the result. Bottom line: Both are safe and effective, which is better for any given patient depends on their clinic presentation and goals READ MORE
