It is not at all uncommon to suffer from some kind of vision impairment problem. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, there are millions of other people out there living with the same condition every day. Because so many people have vision problems, vision correction is so readily available, but it is also why there have been advances in the field as well. If you want to explore options of vision correction that go beyond that of prescription lenses, then you may benefit from seeing our eye doctor here at Throggs Neck Optical and discussing LASIK in the Bronx.

Vision correction appliances like glasses and contacts provide a magnified lens that can help your eyes focus on objects, providing clear vision that your eye cannot achieve on its own. But how does this work? It helps to first understand how the eye works. Most vision problems come from an irregularly shaped cornea. The cornea is the clear portion of the eye directly over the pupil. A lot like the lens of a camera, the cornea is the portion of the eye that refracts the light that passes through it. The shape of the cornea determines just how light is refracted through it, just as a camera lens can be adjusted in order to make things are varying distances blurry or in focus. An eye with perfect vision will have a cornea that is dome-shaped, but any changes in this shape will alter how images are seen by the eye itself. The distorted result will appear blurry and out of focus, which is how it may look when you are not wearing corrective lenses. The lenses themselves try to make up for this difference in shape, but LASIK in the Bronx aims to change the shape of the cornea itself instead. Here at Throggs Neck Optical our eye doctor can use state of the art laser technology to reshape the cornea and make it more dome-shaped.

Before going through with this surgery, you will first need to have a complete evaluation conducted by our eye doctor here at Throggs Neck Optical to determine whether your eyes are healthy enough for the procedure.
