You can enjoy sharper and clearer vision if you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or any combination of those visual issues. LASIK reshapes your cornea, the miscurvature of which is the cause for your less than optimal vision right now. Misshaped corneas lead to light entering your eye and then hitting your retina off center. Under normal circumstances, light passes through your cornea and hits your retina in the middle. This produces normal vision. Any improper curvature leads to reduced visual acuity at various distances. The laser works to reshape your cornea and restore more ideal vision. The result is far less dependence on your eyeglasses or contact lenses. And for some patients, it is entirely possible that you won’t need prescription lenses at all anymore. If that seems like an exciting prospect, it all starts with our LASIK consultation in Mansfield TX.
