Eye Care Specialist in Arlington

LASIK is the laser eye surgery that has revolutionized vision correction. For nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, you can expect impressive results all without the traditional cutting, stitches, and bandages that you would associated with surgery. Here at A Visual Affair, we’re pleased to offer this remarkable procedure that has a success rate of well over 90%.

The point of LASIK is for our eye care specialist in Arlington to reshape your corneas with the help of laser technology. The reason this is necessary is that it is a misshapen cornea that leads to vision problems such as not being able to see well up close, far away, or having blurry vision at all distances. When your cornea is ideally shaped, light enters it and is directed to reach the retina at or very close to the center. That is normal vision, Our eye care specialist in Arlington will open up a small flap of corneal tissue and then use the lasers to reshape your cornea more perfectly. The flap is then put back. It’s all that simple and only requires a few minutes per eye, from start to completion. LASIK is performed under local anesthesia, administered in eye drop form (no injections, so no worry). You’ll be able to go home right after, and your vision should improve by the next day or possibly as soon as later the day of surgery. You will have to rely far less on your eyeglasses or contact lenses, and you may even be able to discard them entirely. More good news: LASIK can be updated, even years later, to account for continued changes in your vision.

To find out if you’re a good candidate for LASIK, all you need do is arrange an appointment to come in for a consultation and examination by our eye care specialist in Arlington.
