There are a variety of options for people with vision issues and deciding which service is right for you is based upon understanding what is actually wrong with your vision. See your eye care physician to diagnose what is actually going on.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) can be an option if you are farsighted and is a procedure that replaces your eye’s natural lens with an artificial lens. This surgery is almost the same surgery as cataract surgery. What lens you get has much to do with the health of your eye. The good news is after you have RLE you are pretty much guaranteed to never get cataracts.
Corneal Inlay Surgery
If you are having trouble focusing on items up close then you may be a candidate for corneal inlay surgery. The objective of the surgery is to fix your eyes so you no longer need reading glasses.
Small lenses are surgically implanted into the cornea during the surgery which can take less than 15 minutes. While corneal inlay surgery may be a great option for you there are also other options available for treating presbyopia which commonly affects people as they get older.
Laser Blended Vision
When you have one eye that sees well close up and one eye that sees well at far distances you have blended vision. Laser Blended Vision increases the depth of field of each eye. After the surgery both laser corrected eyes will blend their focus to give the recipient a wider range of vision.
Custom Wavefront PRK
Photorephractive keratectomy (PRK) is a laser eye surgery where the surgeon, in a similar way to LASIK vision correction, removes the surface layer of the cornea and reshapes cornea the with the laser. This option is often chosen for people when their cornea is too thin to qualify for LASIK.
