Please call today to book your FREE LASIK consultation
LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is the most frequently performed surgery in Cleveland and the rest of the United States to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our Skyvision Centers surgeon, Dr. Darrell White, has been performing LASIK since 1995 right here in Cleveland!
LASIK involves the use of a very special type of laser, the EXCIMER LASER. Its original use was developed by IBM to etch patterns on microchips!
LASIK has become the treatment of choice for many patients because they recover so quickly and typically have very few, if any, side effects or complications. In fact, most LASIK patients notice an improvement in their vision right when they sit up after the surgery!
Are You Tired of Reading Glasses?
As anyone who has struggled with the on and off hassle of readers knows, having the ability to focus on the details of life is priceless. Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay improves near and intermediate vision by simply reshaping the front part of the eye. Raindrop® is a small transparent disc called an inlay. In a quick, LASIK-like procedure the Raindrop® is designed to help you regain your near vision without the need for reading glasses.
What is Presbyopia and how is it treated?
As we age, blurry near vision is one of the first things we may notice. Reading glasses become a constant companion for many people. You might need to hold restaurant menus out far from your eyes, and have trouble reading text messages on your phone. This blurry vision, or near vision loss is called presbyopia. It happens to everyone.
Historically, many people have had to adapt to presbyopia by using reading glasses or getting bifocals. However, there are new FDA approved technologies for getting rid of reading glasses. The Raindrop® Corneal Inlay is one of those solutions. Raindrop® restores your near vision and allows you to read again without losing your distance vision.
Is the Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay for me?
People who have experienced age-related loss of vision and are dependent on reading glasses for close-up daily tasks such as using cell phones, reading, using a computer, etc.. should be evaluated for Raindrop®.
