Evaluating Options for Lasik Vision Correction Procedures
Feb 12, 2019 Columbia, S.C. – Dependence on eyeglasses, or contact lenses due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism can be a challenge. But, these can be changed with Lasik correction procedures. The most common method is laser vision correction which reshapes the cornea to adjust the eye’s focusing ability. There is no universal method that works for everyone, so the best approach is to find a clinic and have a thorough examination with an Ophthalmologist who will discuss the best options available.
Dr. Beau T. Bryan of The Eye Center in South Carolina specializes in laser eye correction. Dr. Bryan excelled in ophthalmology residency at Texas A&M/Scott and White Eye Institute in Temple, TX. He has some of the highest examination scores in the country and has a passion for providing the best surgical eye care for patients. Dr. Bryan is a member of the of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Christian Ophthalmology Society.
According to Dr. Bryan, the most common procedures for laser vision correction are methods such as Advanced Surface Treatment and Epi-Lasik which reshapes your cornea for enhanced vision. An alternative option is Implantable Collamer® Lens (ICL) which is a procedure that uses a contact lens inside of the eye.
