Laser Vision Correction
Begin to enjoy life to the fullest by breaking free of your dependence on corrective lenses. By utilizing the latest laser vision correction technology and a unique approach, Sawyer Eye Center helps you gain the freedom you’re seeking with clarity.
Why Can't I See Clearly?
When we see, light rays pass through the cornea, the clear outer covering of the eye, and focus on the retina at the back of the eye. If the cornea is not correctly shaped, the light cannot properly focus on the retina and a refractive error occurs causing nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Glasses and contact lenses can correct refractive errors while LASIK can eliminate the need for corrective lenses altogether by permanently reshaping the cornea.
An Advanced Approach to Clear Vision with SMILE
Sawyer Eye Center was one of the first in the country to offer SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticule Extraction) – the newest minimally-invasive procedure to correct myopia (nearsightedness). The latest laser vision correction from ZEISS may be your ticket to glasses-free, contact-free clear vision.
LASIK is the safe and effective treatment for correcting common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK can eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses by permanently restoring your vision.
Using the same excimer laser as LASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) removes a small portion of tissue from the front of the cornea to correct your vision. Unlike LASIK eye surgery, no flap is made causing some people to refer to the procedure as “surface LASIK.” This procedure may be recommended as a better option to achieve outcomes similar to LASIK.
