Restoring Eye Sight with Scleral Contact Lenses
There are contact lenses available for virtually every vision problem including astigmatism, presbyopia, postsurgical and keratoconus. At Natural Vision we are committed to providing the best contact lens technology to help you see your world.


LASIK Overview

 

LASIK (Laser-assisted-in-situ-keratomeulis) reduces your dependency on glasses or contacts by reshaping the front of your eye. This creates more clear, Normal Vision.


 

First, your eyes are anesthetized with drops. Then, using a highly sophisticated tool called an auto-shaper, the doctor creates an extremely thin natural cover on the front of your eye that will provide a protective layer for area reshaped by the laser.

The cover is lifted to allow the laser to gently reshape the front of your eye for about 30 to 60 seconds. Then the natural cover is placed back down, and within a few minutes, the eyeís cells begin to re-adhere to the cover and healing begins.


How Long till I Can See (Healing time)?

Because the natural cover provides a protective layer for the area shaped by the laser, healing is very quick. (No stitches are needed!) Within a day or two, most patients see naturally more clearly than they ever have, without glasses or contacts.

 


 

What is PRK?

PRK or Photorefractive Keratectomy is a procedure in which the front of your eye is reshaped so that you can see more clearly without glasses or contacts.


What Happens in PRK?
  

In PRK, first your eyes are anesthetized with drops. Then the doctor uses an Excimer Ultraviolet Laser to gently reshape the front of your eye for about 30 to 60 seconds.

Is there Any Pain?

After the procedure, the doctor will place a contact lens over your eye to protect it from the elements, unlike the LASIK procedure, with PRK the very surface of your eye is trying to heal, so there may often be pain for the first 24 to 48 hours. You will be given a regimen of drops to follow for a few weeks to help manage this. Finally, you will return for several post-operative visits.

How Long Till I See Clearly?

Because the very surface of your eye has been operated on, it may take any where from a week to several months before you achieve your final vision correction as your eye heals.
