Taking care of your eye health is incredibly important, but unfortunately eye health often goes overlooked.

With routine exams, you can effectively find the root cause of a vision problems early on and make sure that you get the treatment you need. With the help of our Mansfield eye doctor here at Heritage Eye Care you can consider things such as cataract and LASIK eye surgery and find out more about whether these procedures are right for you.
Many people have vision impairments, meaning that they cannot see perfectly without the help of prescription lenses. By using eyeglasses or contacts, many people can improve your eyesight on a daily basis, however there are plenty of those who do not like relying on prescription lenses in order to see clearly. For those looking for an alternative, LASIK surgery is an option. Prescription lenses aim to correct vision problems by providing the eye with the magnification it needs to make up for any differences in the shape of the cornea. LASIK surgery, however, looks to improve eyesight by reshaping the cornea completely. Using a precision laser, the procedure slices through the cornea and allows it to heal in a way that it is more even when completely healed. This can help reduce your reliance on prescription lenses and help improve your eyesight on a daily basis. Here at Heritage Eye Care we can also help individuals who suffer from cataracts and may need to have their corneas completely removed and replaced with an artificial lens. The procedure is similar to that of LASIK, and our Mansfield eye doctor is here to provide you with the examination you need to see if you are eligible as well as with the co-management required to prep you for the procedure as well as provide aftercare.
