LASIK Or Implantable Contact Lenses?

Having eye-sight problems can be quite frustrating and debilitating.  If you are considering laser eye surgery in Miami then consider all your options.  One might think it’s just a choice between LASIK procedures or implantable contact lenses, but it really isn’t that simple.

Each eye treatment is unique and your eye specialist will advise you on which treatment option is best suited to your particular condition.  By booking an appointment to see your eye specialist you can ascertain the severity of your condition and learn more about which treatment plans are available to you.

What Does Each Procedure Treat?

Understanding each laser eye surgery procedure is the best way of knowing what your options are based on your condition.  Below we explain what each procedure is designed for and what you can expect.

  • LASIK.  This procedure makes use of the most advanced laser vision correction technology available. This refractive laser eye surgery is used to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness among other things.
  • Implantable Contact Lenses.  This procedure is best suited to those who do not qualify for laser eye surgery or who have inadequate corneal tissue.  The lens that is inserted into the eye between the iris and the natural lens helps to focus light correctly on the retina which improves vision. 

When visiting your Miami eye specialist you should be advised on both of these procedures in detail.  For your convenience, financing options are available for these procedures at The Laser Center of Coral Gables.
