Hundreds of thousands of people around the world are enjoying more freedom in recreational activities, performing more comfortably at their jobs, and experiencing a higher quality of life as a result of vision correction surgery.
Is it important for you to see better on your job without the aid of corrective eyewear? Do you long to be able to read the clock when you wake up without fumbling for your glasses? Do you want to see well enough to take care of yourself in an emergency? The goal of vision correction surgery is to reduce or eliminate your need for corrective eyewear.
At Stokes Vision Correction Center, we employ the latest technology, including advanced laser surgery, backed by years of experience, to help you achieve improved vision for your lifestyle.
UNDERSTANDING VISION CORRECTION SURGERY
LASIK is the most common laser vision correction procedure performed today. This procedure is performed by creating a thin flap and then utilizing an excimer, or computer controlled ultraviolet (cold) laser, to sculpt the underlying cornea into a new shape. This corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, thus eliminating or reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses.
We offer standard treatment options as well as the most advanced, customizable, options available. You and your physician can decide which option is best for your individual needs.
