Imagine waking up to see the world with crisp, brilliant clarity. Is it possible to watch television, drive or play sports all without glasses or contacts? With vision correction surgery, you should find a new freedom to do the things you enjoy most. This procedure has been described as life-changing by many of our patients.
Because your eyes are as unique as you are, you deserve a laser that can address the special qualities and features of your eyes and can provide you with the most optimal vision. That's just what Wavelight® Refractive Suite® can do for you. The doctors at Key-Whitman Eye Center have chosen Wavelight® EX500 and Wavelight® FS200 because your safety and results are priorities. The Wavelight® laser has the best outcomes reported to the FDA. It is designed to preserve the natural shape of your cornea, thus giving you the best quality of vision.
Your eye works a lot like a camera; bending light to focus it onto the retina (the back of your eye) for a crisp,clear image. Although the lens inside your eye certainly helps to focus light, the majority of focusing power actually comes from a different part of your eye. The cornea - the clear, protective coating on the surface of your eye - does most of the heavy lifting, making it the main focus of laser vision correction. If your eye has an ideal shape, light will focus precisely where it should on the retina and you will have great vision.
However, if the shape of your eye is even a little off, it can result in light focusing at the wrong spot, leading to distorted eyesight. Conditions treatable by LASIK include Myopia (nearsightedness), Hyperopia (farsightedness), and Astigmatism.
