Eye surgery in Seattle
Laser vision correction with LASIK here at the office of Dr. Sheldon Cowen provides permanent improvement for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, with results that allow you to stop relying so heavily on your contacts or eyeglasses. Some patients are able to discard their corrective lenses entirely.
Our eye surgery in Seattle
is safe, quick, and effective. It involves the reshaping of your cornea, so that light will travel between it and your retina more efficiently. When your vision is less than ideal, it is typically a sign that light is striking your retina at the front or back, instead of at or near the center, as is the case with normal vision. With astigmatism, your corneal shape leads to light being refracted unevenly. Our eye surgery in Seattle changes all of that. And it does so without the need for stitches or bandages. Lasers give you significantly fewer complication possibilities. The entire process takes only a few minutes per eye, it's done right here at our office, and you can go home right afterward. Nothing could be simpler or give you more benefit for such minimal effort. Are you a good candidate for LASIK? Most patients at least 18 years or older do qualify. When you come in, our eye surgeon will examine your eyes and take a medical history to make certain that you're eligible. The procedure is done under local anesthesia in the form of eye drops. Success is achieved in about 96% of cases, which is an outstanding number that should inspire confidence that you will see the outcome that you want. You should notice that your vision is better by the next day, or maybe even later the same day.
