Every Eye is Unique

As you enter your 40s, your eyes will begin the natural aging process where the lens of the eye becomes less flexible and clouds over time. The first stage of this process is called presbyopia, which prevents your eye from focusing on things close to you. As the lens continues to age, your vision will continue to worsen. The lens will eventually become cloudy which is called a cataract, this makes it harder for light to enter the eye. For people with clear vision, the cornea and lens bend light so it focuses properly on the retina.

It has become the most popular option at 43Vision because it can address many different vision issues. It treats nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia – reducing or eliminating the need for readers and bifocals.

Blended LASIK

for Nearsightedness and/or Astigmatism

For nearsighted patients who are not yet ready for Lens Replacement, Blended LASIK can be quite effective. It is safe, gentle, and the results are proven. For this procedure, one eye is corrected to see things up close and the other to see at distance. Your brain will use the information from both eyes to create a clear and complete image.

LASIK After Cataract Surgery

for Freedom from Glasses after Cataract Removal

Having cataracts removed is necessary in order to keep your vision clear and colorful, but after treatment your eyes can still have nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is safe and gentle, and can help reduce your dependence on glasses. It is also the treatment we have spent the past 25-plus years perfecting.
