As a resident of Orange County Lasik is a common vision correction procedure many of my friends and family members have received, including myself. Before Lasik, I can remember how frustrating glasses and contacts are. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was about 14 years old. Large frames and thick lenses were never attractive. I can openly admit they did get better over time (in terms of design) but as I’ve always been active, wearing glasses were never convenient. My optometrist then recommended contact lenses. I went through a few different brands and types (daily, monthly, etc.) and even though it was easier than eye glasses, they still needed to be cleaned; they often tore, irritated my eyes, and needed to be replaced. After a while, I started looking for a better solution. According to a friend who also lives in Orange County Lasik Surgeon s are highly trained and perform the procedure with advanced equipment that ensure precision. With the right Lasik Surgeon Southern California residents can receive 20/20 vision or better and with results being permanent, the hassle of every having to use contact lenses or eye glasses is completely eliminated. Many of my friends and family have recommended Lasik surgery as being convenient, affordable, and effective.
An eye care professional that can perform a Lasik procedure is also most likely to perform a cataract replacement procedure. Cataracts refer to the clouding of the clear lens in the eye, making it difficult to see. With the skill set of an experienced Cataract Surgeon Orange County Cataract patients can replace the lens with a custom cataract lens as needed. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the eye and the cloudy lens is then broken up and removed, a lens is then inserted through the same incision and positioned permanently. Surprisingly, patients heal much quicker than they expect with minimal discomfort or pain associated with their procedure and often, patients return to daily activities the following day. Most patients will still need to wear glasses when reading or working on the computer following the procedure.
