98104 Eye Surgeon
Vision problems are very common, and they vary from person to person as well. The state of your vision in the quality of your eyesight may also change throughout your lifetime, so annual exams are always important to remember and to keep up with. For the most part, vision impairment problems are treated with the use of prescription lenses of some kind, whether they be glasses or contacts, but there are other procedures that you might want to consider as well, including eye surgery. Eye surgery that is used to help improve your vision is also known as LASIK surgery and our 98104 eye surgeon
Dr. Sheldon Cowen is here to provide interested patients with the comprehensive evaluations that they need in order to determine whether or not they are eligible for this particular procedure.
Though most people are fine wearing glasses or contacts in order to see clearly every day, there are others who may not like having to rely on optical tools in order to see well. Whether this means wearing glasses or having to constantly renew your supply of contacts, there are alternative options available to you. One of these alternative options is LASIK surgery, but not everyone can undergo this particular surgical procedure so it is imperative that you see an eye doctor that can provide you with the overall evaluation that you need in order to find out whether you happen to be a candidate. Most vision problems derive from imperfections in the shape of the cornea. The cornea is a bit like the lens of the camera, but for your eye instead. Like a camera lens, the cornea is clear and curved and is the portion of the eye that rests
just over the pupil. Like the lens of the camera, the clarity in curvature of the cornea will affect the way that light passes through it, thus affecting how light is refracted and how the images you see are perceived by your retina and your brain. Glasses and contacts provide your eyes with additional lenses there which to see through, allowing you to see clearly and comfortably, but surgery or other procedures like LASIK can help to improve your vision by reshaping the cornea itself. With the help of our 98104 eye surgeon
Dr. Sheldon Cowen you can find out whether the surgical procedure is an option for you. Some individuals may not be able to undergo laser eye surgery because of the overall health of their cornea or because of damage that their corneas may have experienced in the past. There a number of other conditions that our eye surgeon can help cross off your list, if you happen to be eligible for this particular procedure Dr. Cowen can help get you ready and can provide you with the treatment you need.
Even though vision impairment problems are fairly common, you don't have to treat your impairment the common way. LASIK surgery is becoming increasingly more popular and the technology used in order to perform the surgery has significantly advanced as well, making it easier and safer than ever before.
