Could You Benefit from LASIK?
LASIK, (laser in situ keratomileusis), involves using a specialized laser instrument to reshape the cornea in front of the eye to improve vision for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. While most people have significant vision improvement, keep in mind that not everyone emerges with perfect vision.

Why are regular of regular eye exams important
Eye exams for children play an important role in ensuring normal vision development and academic achievement of all kids.
Vision is closely linked to the learning process. Children with undetected vision problems often will have trouble with their schoolwork. Many times, children will not complain of vision problems simply because they don't know what "normal" vision looks like.
Vision screenings are limited eye tests that help identify people who are at risk for vision problems. These are the brief vision tests performed by the school nurse, a pediatrician, other health care providers or volunteers.
The eye test that you take when you get your driver's license renewed is an example of a vision screening.
Treatment plans following your eye exam can include a prescription for glasses or contact lenses to correct refractive errors, vision therapy or strabismus surgery for binocular vision problems, medical treatment for eye disease or simply a recommendation that you have your eyes examined again within a specific time frame.
Your eye doctor also may recommend that you take eye vitamins or vision supplements to maintain good eye health or to help alleviate specific problems like dry eyes.
No matter who you are, regular eye exams are important for seeing more clearly, learning more easily and preserving your vision for life.
