Stop Wasting Money on Replacement Glasses!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 2:39 pm

There are few things more annoying than losing your glasses. It can take a long time to pick out the right pair and get the right prescription. Glasses usually are not cheap, and when you lose a pair, it can be a hassle, as well as expensive. Whether it’s your regular daily glasses or your prescription sunglasses, losing your glasses reminds you how reliant you are on them to be able to see.

If you are prone to losing your glasses, you have probably spent hundreds of dollars extra to get replacement pairs, as well as spare pairs to keep on hand. Instead of continuing to spend this money, it’s time to consider getting rid of your glasses entirely by having laser vision correction surgery.

LASIK is an outpatient procedure performed at Boothe Laser Center. It takes just a few minutes per eye, and you will be seeing clearly in just a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Once your eyes have healed, you won’t have to worry about your glasses ever again. LASIK is almost always permanent, and most patients never have to have a repeat procedure.

Rather than lose more glasses and spend more money, invest in a future of permanently clear vision. Come see Dr. William Boothe to review the LASIK procedure and find out if you are a good candidate.

LASIK Results May Not Be Immediate for Everyone

Filed under: Dr. William Boothe — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 2:37 pm

LASIK surgery is an option where you can correct your vision, so that you don’t need contacts or glasses again. Many eye surgeons prefer LASIK over other surgical procedures, because patients experience less discomfort, heal faster, and have improved vision sooner.

However, it’s important to understand that there is no guarantee as to when you will see better after LASIK at Boothe Laser Center. Most patients experience some blurriness immediately after surgery. It’s not unusual for patients to be able to see clearly the following day. However, not everyone has this happen.

Some patients must heal for several days or even a few weeks to fully realize better vision. During this time you will have follow-ups with Dr. William Boothe, who will determine if your eyes are healing properly and if your eyesight is improving as expected.

It’s possible that you may need a second LASIK procedure, if it turns out that your eyes were not fully corrected the first time. This is rare, but it can happen. It will be up to you and Dr. Boothe to review your results and determine if you need further treatment.

The Differences Between LASIK and PRK Surgeries

Filed under: Doctor-Boothe — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 5:09 pm

There are other options besides LASIK for surgical vision correction. One alternative is a technique called PRK. PRK is very similar to LASIK in that a laser is also used to shape the cornea. However, in PRK, the outside of the cornea is shaped to correct your vision. In LASIK, a flap is cut in the cornea and the tissue underneath is shaped.

Why is it that most surgeons prefer LASIK over PRK? It has to do with the recovery time. Because PRK removes part of the exterior of the cornea, patients experience much more irritation and discomfort after the procedure. It also takes longer for it to heal, and longer to regain your eyesight.

While surgeons prefer LASIK for most of their patients, there are some cases where PRK is the better choice. For those that have thin corneas without enough tissue to cut a flap, PRK can often be another option for vision correction surgery.

When you to speak to your surgeon, you can ask any questions you have about both procedures. Dr. William Boothe will review your eye health and prescription at your LASIK consultation, and make a recommendation as to which procedure will be better for you. Come in for your free LASIK consultation at Boothe Laser Center, to see which if vision correction surgery will work to improve your eyesight.

Filed under: dr boothe — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 12:24 pm

Have your glasses ever kept you from participating in sports or physical activities? For most people, the answer to that question is going to be yes. Glasses make it hard to do well in sports or other physical activities, such as hiking, climbing, and boating.

LASIK Is a Simple Procedure, But There are Potential Complications to Be Aware Of

Filed under: boothe laser center — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 12:36 pm

Before you undergo LASIK surgery, it’s important to understand that this procedure has certain risks and complications that can occur. Because it has such a low rate of complications, it’s easy to forget that LASIK is indeed surgery. But it is surgery, and you need to be aware of the risks involved.

Most complications that result from LASIK are minor and usually temporary. These include things such as dry eye after surgery, and light sensitivity. Both of these usually are a result of the flap that was cut in your cornea, and go away as your eye heals.

There is a potential for more serious complications, which are also associated with the corneal flap. If the flap is not been cut correctly, you may end up with astigmatism, which causes blurred and double vision. This can usually be corrected by another LASIK procedure.

It’s important to have a well trained and experienced surgeon perform your procedure, so you can cut your risks of these complications. That’s why Dr. William Boothe is a good choice for your LASIK procedure. Dr. Boothe has performed LASIK over 121,000 times in the last 15 years, and is well-versed in the latest technologies available to make LASIK safer. You can talk to him during your free consultation at Boothe Laser Center, and review your options for permanent vision correction.
