Whether you have just recently started wearing glasses or contact lenses or have done so for your entire life, one of the most annoying and expensive chores you face is your annual eye examination followed by the inevitable year-to-year prescription changes. Let’s be honest. Stylish frames are a pricey proposition, and your lenses can become increasingly costly as your prescription increases or you move into bifocal or progressive lenses. Is there a better way to spend your hard-earned money and save precious time? At Magruder Laser Vision, we offer a variety of solutions to this annual dilemma, and one of them might be perfect for you! And it’s not just about Orlando LASIK.
You may not have considered corrective vision procedures before, but Doc Brock wants you to know that the time has never been better to explore the options available that will allow you to restore your vision and unchain you from the hassle of year-to-year prescription changes. The following are some options.
Refractive Lens Exchange
If you are reaching for those readers more and more often as the years pass by, you may be the perfect candidate for refractive lens exchange (RLE). This procedure eliminates the need for year-to-year prescription changes for good. RLE removes your natural lenses and replaces them with high-quality prescription lenses. These lenses can provide clearer vision for patients suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia. The procedure is painless, and patients notice immediate improvement with minimal to no down time.
Permanent Contact Lenses
Also known as implantable contact lenses (ICL), permanent contact lenses are surgically implanted, and the procedure is performed similarly to cataract surgery. This procedure prevents a patient from getting cataracts because the natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear implant. This allows the patient to experience clear vision instead of waiting for the progression of cloudiness and decreased vision until a cataract is ready to be removed which can take years.
Photorefractive keratectomy is used to treat a variety of vision problems from farsightedness to astigmatism to presbyopia (nearsightedness). Sophisticated laser technology removes exceedingly small amounts of surface tissue from the cornea. The laser targets this surface area (LASIK targets the underside of the cornea) which eliminates the need for the flap that is made during a LASIK procedure. PRK is often a solution for patients who are not viable candidates for Orlando LASIK.
Don’t wait until your next annual eye exam to find out that you need another year-to-year prescription change. Instead, check in with Doc Brock at Magruder Laser Vision to see if you are a viable candidate for Orlando LASIK, RLE, ICL or PRK. Call today to schedule your free consultation: 407-706-4472.
