Refractive vision problems like myopia and hyperopia make it hard for people to see objects located far from them or near them, respectively. These problems can affect a person at any stage of life and are the most common vision defects in both men and women.
The main reason for development of these refractive vision problems is a natural change in the shape of the eyeball. This changing shape inhibits the lens from properly focusing light rays on the retina, instead either focusing in front of the retina (nearsightedness) or behind it (farsightedness).
Until a few years ago, the only treatment available for these visual issues was to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. Nowadays, there are other treatment options available that can help you restore your vision completely. LASIK eye surgery is one of those methods.
At Roholt Vision Institute, we use state-of-the-art systems for performing LASIK eye surgery. After LASIK surgery, you can throw away your glasses or contacts for reading or seeing distant objects. Your vision will become totally normal and you will be able to see the world clearly with your own eyes. If you’ve had glasses or contacts since you were a kid, your vision will likely be better after LASIK than you ever remember it being.
LASIK surgery is an out patient procedure; you will be able to go home the day of the surgery. You will be asked to rest for a week, and then will be able to resume your daily activities.
If you’re tired of wearing glasses or contacts, it’s time for LASIK eye surgery at Roholt Vision Institute.
