Since the late 1980’s Ophthalmologists have been providing correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism initially using various corneal based procedures including Radial Keratotomy and Astigmatic Keratotomy. More recently other Laser based corneal procedures have been used including LASIK, SMILE, LASEK, and PRK. The lasers used have also gone through numerous changes. These laser-based procedures have been very successful and extremely accurate.

Notwithstanding the above, there are still patients who are not the best candidates for LASIK and PRK. These patients may have thin or irregularly shaped corneas or are near or past the prescription limits of LASIK and PRK. Some patients may, for various reasons, be more suited for newer procedures. These newer procedures include Implantable Contact Lenses or Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL) and Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE).

Cataract Surgery has also changed recently to include not simply removal and replacement of the cloudy human lens (cataract) but also various methods to reduce the need for glasses after cataract surgery (Advanced Cataract Surgery). These methods include Limbal Relaxing Incisions, Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (Panoptix, Restor, Rezoom, and Symfony) or Accommodating Intraocular Lenses (Crystalens). There are other accommodating Intraocular lenses that are still under investigation at this point. There are also Intraocular Lenses that can be adjusted after they are implanted like the Light Adjustable Lens.

Modern Vision Correction constitutes the use of one or a combination of these procedures to customize a procedure plan individualized for each patient. With these customized plans we at Davis Vision Center can provide help for most all age groups from ages 18 to 90+ and anywhere in between.
