LASIK Surgery Procedure
LASIK surgery is a unique procedure designed to rectify farsightedness and nearsightedness in patients with blurry or troubled vision. By tweaking the cornea slightly, our experienced eye doctors can improve your vision. For nearsighted people, the goal is to flatten a too-steep cornea. For farsighted people, on the other hand, our goal is to achieve a steeper cornea.
Cataracts are caused when protein begins to build up over the lens of the eye, making your vision cloudy and blurred. The cataract itself will prevent light from passing through the eye clearly. In some cases, you may lose your eyesight entirely or the entire eye. Age appears to be the most common cause of cataracts, though congenital reasons and trauma are close behind it.
To ensure our LASIK surgery and cataract treatments in Dover, DE are the best in the region, we perform ongoing training for all eye doctors and are equipped with the latest tools.
