Posted May 16 2011 12:07pm
Many men and women seek vision correction not only to receive clear vision but to keep eyes healthy and strong. Typically, eye glasses and contact lenses are enough to keep clear vision but can be cost hundreds of dollars to maintain. With Laser Eye Surgery South Bay residents can receive clear vision without the use of eye glasses or contact lenses. With results being permanent, Laser Eye Surgery or “Lasik” has become one of the most effective ways to receive clear vision and eliminate the hassle of alternatives. A Lasik procedure is completed by creating a corneal flap to access the cornea and then reshaping it with laser technology to receive clear vision. The procedure is completed by a Torrance Eye Surgeon who can explain, in detail, how the procedure is completed, what to expect before and after the procedure
For some patients, vision correction may not only come in the form of contact lenses or lasik surgery, but may come in the form of eyelid surgery. As we age, the skin naturally wrinkles and begins to droop, and for some patients the drooping may occur more aggressively on the forehead and eyelid area of the face. The eyelid drooping can become heavy and obstruct vision. In the South Bay Eyelid Surgery may be performed by an eye surgeon who can reduce the drooping of the eyelids to provide a clear range of view easily. An eyelid surgery may also be performed for cosmetic purposes as it draws the attention back to the eyes and can provide youthful, yet natural results.
As many eye surgeons not only provide eyelid surgery for vision correction but for cosmetic purposes as well, many also offer other facial rejuvenation treatments. With Botox Torrance residents can smooth the look and feel of fine lines and wrinkles in the face with a Botox treatment that takes about 15 minutes to complete. Results are visible immediately with full results after a few hours. Botox is effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and lips. Treatment is recommended to be repeated every 4 to 6 months to maintain youthful looking results.
