"Get The Vision You've Been Dreaming of" at a Price You Never Imagined

 
NORMAL EYE
  • The normal eye works very much like a camera: the cornea and the lens of the eye focus the image of a distant object on the retina, which captures the picture just as the film of the camera. The cornea provides most of the focusing power, and cannot change its shape.  
  • WHICH EYESIGHT PROBLEMS CAN BE CORRECTED BY LASIK?
  • MYOPIA In the myopic eye the cornea and the lens are too steep and/or the eyeball is too long. Therefore the image is focused on a point in front of the retina (Vision forming back part of the eye) and is seen as a blur. Only by moving up close to the object will its image be shifted on to the retina and seen clearly. The Laser ablation reduces the curvature of the cornea allowing you to regain normal eyesight.
  • HYPEROPIA In the hyperopic eye the cornea and the lens are too flat and/or the eyeball is too short. Therefore the image is focused on a point behind the retina (Vision forming back part of the eye) and is seen as a blur. The Laser ablation increases the curvature of the cornea allowing you to regain normal eyesight.
  • ASTIGMATISM In astigmatism image is formed at two different points inside the eye. In the normal eye the surface of the cornea is round like a soccer ball ( Spherical). With astigmatism the cornea is slightly oblong like a rugby ball (American Football). This means that images of different orientations are focused at different parts of the eye and that the image on the retina is blurred. After Lasik the cornea is spherical again allowing you to regain normal vision.
