LASIK eye surgery (Laser Insitu Keratomileusis) is a highly successful and popular procedure for vision correction that has been available for about 18 years. LASIK is the quickest and most comfortable of all forms of Laser eye surgery. LASIK is used to correct short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.
For those who can’t have LASIK eye surgery because their corneas are too thin, steep or flat, LASEK eye surgery could be the solution. Instead of creating a corneal flap, the procedure involves the outer layer of the cornea being placed aside whilst the cornea is reshaped. You can find out more about LASEK eye surgery below.
Implantable Contact Lenses
Rather than changing the shape of the cornea, flexible miniature contact lenses are placed between the iris and human lens to enhance the eye’s natural focusing ability. The result is excellent quality of vision for a wide range of prescriptions.
Clear Lens Extraction & Cataract Treatment
Advanced Vision Care is also a leader in clear lens extraction (CLE); a treatment frequently offered to patients of 45 years or older who are unsuitable for implantable contact lens treatments.
