The loss of eyesight can be debilitating and usually happens over a period of time. Even if you have perfect vision throughout your young adult life, your vision is still prone to worsening as you get older. Corrective lenses can help you see clearly, but you will need to update your prescription every few years. If you do not want corrective lenses or to update your prescription frequently, Lasik eye surgery may be the best way to improve your vision. Lasik can help you regain your vision without needing glasses or contacts. Our team here at Today's Vision Bulverde in Northeast San Antonio is here to help you determine whether Lasik is right for you.
Lasik is a laser surgical procedure that gently reshapes your cornea, allowing you to see without needing glasses or contacts. This surgery can treat common refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is not recommended for anyone under 18 to have the surgery because your eye's shape is still changing and developing. We also do not recommend Lasik for patients older than 50 as the surgery may not heed the most effective results.
The first step in improving your vision is scheduling an eye exam with our optometrists at Today's Vision Bulverde. We will provide you with the eye and vision care you need. Even if Lasik is not something that will work for your vision, we offer many other corrective vision options at our office. To determine what vision treatment is right for you, give us a call at (210) 307-4749 or schedule an appointment online. Our team is committed to providing you with the quality eye care you need at our San Antonio office.
