Are you tired of wearing glasses? Hate struggling with contacts that make your eyes hurt and itch? There may be a better solution than spending a large part of your day using corrective vision products. In fact, you may be a great candidate for LASIK procedures, which is a laser surgery that corrects a variety of vision ailments. However, LASIK may not fix all eye problems, and not all people will be good candidates for the procedure. Our LASIK exam will evaluate your total eye health, the severity of any conditions and the likelihood that your condition will be helped by LASIK surgery. Good candidates for LASIK surgery generally meet the following criteria:
- They are at least 21 years of age.
- They are in “good general health,” meaning they are free of health problems such as uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune diseases or that they are not taking any medications that will compromise the immune system.
- They should be free of eye diseases such as keratoconus, glaucoma, cataracts, corneal disease and
- They have disclosed any and all eye conditions and eye problems to their physician prior to the initial examination.
- They do not have any eye infections or injuries.
- They are not nursing or pregnant.
- They do not suffer from the condition known as dry eye.
While most think of glaucoma as a disease, it’s actually a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve. Because it’s a group of diseases, symptoms may be wide-ranging, from underlying problems that you don’t notice to noticeable changes in your vision. Lebanon Optometric Center and Breese Family Vision Center provides evaluation and treatment for all types of glaucoma. We provide medicinal treatments and may be able to recommend you for laser surgery.
Types of Glaucoma
- Chronic (Open-Angle) Glaucoma
- Normal Tension Glaucoma
- Acute (Angle Closure) Glaucoma
- Secondary Glaucoma
Dry Eye Evaluation
Do you suffer from eyes that chronically itch, water or feel irritated? This could mean that you have dry eye, which is a condition that causes the eyes to feel dry all of the time, causing chronic irritation that can range from mild to severe. Dry eye can develop because of heavy use such as intensive reading, TV viewing, dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, and more. We can provide treatments to stimulate natural tear products and control the inflammation of your eyes, which quell the symptoms and allow you to see irritation free!
