Laser eye surgery has helped millions of people, just like you, see clearly independent of glasses or contact lenses. LASIK, SMILE® and PRK can enable people to resume their active lifestyles again without the aid of glasses and contact lenses. Imagine being able to work out without the inconvenience of your glasses slipping. Picture waking up and being able to see the alarm clock first thing in the morning. Envision life without the hassle of putting lenses in each day free and free of the worry they will dry out as the day passes. If you are ready to say good-bye to all of these annoyances, Laser Vision Correction is just the thing for you.
Because The Cataract Surgeons are the refractive eye care experts, Dr. Shelby, and Dr. Coleman perform a variety of vision surgeries to improve eyesight. In addition to being the only medical facility in Louisiana to offer SMILE®, they also perform two other laser vision correction procedures; LASIK and PRK. They know eye surgery isn’t a one size fit all, and because of this, they treat patients on the case by case basis. That’s why they have trained extensively in the use of several different techniques and sought out only the best technology to bring to the Ark-La-Tex.
Laser vision correction is a type of refractive surgery. The goal of any refractive surgical procedure is to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. In laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK, SMILE®, and PRK the cornea is the clear ‘window’ in front of your pupil. Reshaping this surface allows images that enter the eye to focus properly on the retina (the sensitive layer of tissue lining the back of the eye that allows you to see objects and images).
If you live in the Shreveport area and want to undergo a minimally invasive procedure to improve your eyesight, SMILE® LASIK could be perfect for you. Contact The Cataract Surgeons today to learn more about SMILE® LASIK and whether this new procedure could be beneficial for you.
