In eyes with normal vision, the cornea bends (refracts) light precisely onto the retina at the back of the eye. With nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism, the light is bent incorrectly, resulting in blurred vision. Lasik is a type of refractive surgery that shapes the cornea to correct that refractive error.
The goal of LASIK is to correct the blurred vision and improve your desired sight. This surgery will be done right here at River View Surgery Center by one of our surgeons.
River View Surgery Center follows strict guidelines to provide safe high-quality care. Our highly trained surgeons and staff put patient safety and concerns at the top of our list. Our ophthalmologist will work with you on your expectations and goals for corrected vision. Not everyone is a candidate for Lasik so our ophthalmologists and staff will review and work with you on options for the best outcomes.
We follow the American Academy of Ophthalmology in education and standards of care. We encourage you to learn more about Lasik on their website.
