Laser vision correction
is now in its second decade of helping patients reduce or eliminate their
dependence on glasses and contact lenses. As testimony to its life changing
benefits, thousands of ophthalmologists and optometrists around the world
have become so impressed with the results of laser vision correction that
over one million procedures are now performed each year. At Nolan Eye &
Laser Center our patients continuously tell us they appreciate our
commitment to being on the cutting edge of this exciting technology.
Heavy patient demand for
laser vision correction has inspired surgeons and laser manufacturers to
make tremendous advancements in both Excimer laser technology and surgical
technique. When laser vision correction was first performed in 1988, only
low to moderately nearsighted patients without astigmatism could be treated.
Today, with the second and third generation Excimer lasers, very low to
moderately high degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
can be effectively treated. And for many patients that had large pupils,
thin corneas or other contraindications for laser vision correction, newer
surgical techniques now allow them to enjoy the benefits of clear vision
without dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Only a few years ago these
patients would not have been good candidates for laser vision treatment.
