Vienna Eyecare Center in Vienna provides consultation and treatment for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures
Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Vienna Eyecare Center in Vienna. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.
Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)
Orthokeratology is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight.
When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results.
Myopia Management for Children
Myopia usually begins during early childhood and can progress throughout adolescence. Myopia is a major concern as it drastically increases risk of eye disease such as retinal tears, glaucoma and retinal degeneration. There are evidence-based treatments that can slow down a child’s myopia progression. Our doctors can review myopia management options and discuss which are best suited for your child.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.
While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Dr. Snively will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of refractive surgery best fits your needs.
Vienna Eyecare Center has the experience and equipment necessary to provide consultation and treatment for the vision correction procedures and surgeries detailed above at our office in Vienna. Schedule an appointment with Richard Snively, O.D., and we will be in touch with you shortly.
