Vision Treatment & Correction
LaCroix Eye Care is an excellent resource when it comes to providing treatment and consultation for vision correction surgeries and procedures.
“Vision correction” refers to a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. Below is a list of some of the most common vision correction procedures available.
Cataract Surgery is one of the safest (and most commonly performed) operations around the world. There is also a fairly new advancement in cataract surgery, called LensX, which involves using lasers. Here is a simple slideshow to help guide you through how laser cataract surgery works, as well as how it compares to traditional cataract surgery.
Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)
Orthokeratology is a procedure for correcting nearsightedness (called “myopia”) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses worn overnight. Because the effects of these contacts are only temporary, patients must continue wearing the lenses regularly at night to maintain clear vision during the day.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure performed using a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic, you may benefit from this type of procedure. And while millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Contact Us today to schedule an exam to determine if LASIK is an option for you.
Low Vision Therapy
“Low vision” refers to a partial loss of vision that cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery. Common causes of low vision include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, inherited retinal degenerative diseases, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy.
Low vision therapy typically includes an evaluation of the patient’s visual abilities, prescription of low vision devices and training in their use. The goal is to maximize the use of the patient’s available vision for reading, writing, hobbies and work-related tasks such as working at a computer.
