LASIK is an eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism—all of which are often caused by a focusing errors that can be corrected by changing the shape of the cornea.
In RLE the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with a silicone or plastic intraocular lens (IOL). The replacement IOL is of a power to correct most, if not all, of the patient’s hyperopia or myopia.
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness in this country and every year, thousands of diabetic patients become visually impaired because they seek treatment too late. An annual eye exam can help.
Regular eye exams are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration cause no symptoms and
early intervention can prevent vision loss.
