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.

What Makes a Good Candidate for Laser Vision Correction Surgery?

Filed under: boothe laser center — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 2:18 pm

Millions of people have had their eyes permanently corrected through LASIK. And one of the reasons why the results are so successful in those that undergo the procedure is that doctors are good at screening out those who will not respond well to the treatment. Because though LASIK is effective for many, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure.

In order to have LASIK, you must be at least 18 years old. This is so your eyes will have stopped growing. You also must have a stable prescription. If your eyesight has changed at all in the last year, you will not be able to have LASIK. But if it’s been stable for over a year, you may be ready.

It’s also important that your eyes be in good health. If you have any eye related diseases, such as cataracts, diabetic eye complications, or any other vision issues, you’ll need to tell your surgeon about them. They will decide if LASIK is still appropriate, or if there is another avenue to pursue.

You can discuss all of this at your free consultation at Boothe Laser Center. If it turns out after your consultation with Dr. Boothe that you are a good candidate, then you can schedule the procedure and be on your way toward clear vision without corrective lenses.

Filed under: boothe laser center — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 2:54 pm

When you are considering making any changes to your vision, it’s always a good idea to examine what the risks are. After all, this is your eyesight, and you want to make sure that you are going to protect it.

With eyeglasses, there are very few risks involved. There is a chance of breaking your glasses, especially if you participate in impact sports. You also run the risk of getting the wrong prescription and developing headaches and eye strain as a result.

Contact lenses are popular option for those with blurry vision who don’t like to wear glasses. However, contacts carry more of a risk to your vision. They can cause discomfort and can transmit bacteria into your eye, if handled improperly. This can lead to an infection, which, if not treated properly, can permanently damage your vision.

LASIK vision correction surgery is fast becoming a popular alternative to glasses or contacts. Because it’s surgery, it has its own set of risks. Although, the risks are fairly low and generally are temporary. When you undergo LASIK, there’s a chance that your eyes might be corrected too much or not enough, resulting in having to undergo LASIK a second time to fix the problem. You also run the risk of developing dry eyes, though this usually will disappear when your eyes finish healing. Some patients also report that they experience glare or halos at night. Again, most patients find this goes away naturally when their eyes heal.

No matter what you decide to do, you should review your options at Boothe Laser Center. Dr. William Boothe has treated thousands of patients, and is one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the world.

The Problem with Contact Lenses

Filed under: boothe laser center — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 3:02 pm

Modern contact lenses can be comfortable to wear, and can help you see better when you are nearsighted or have astigmatism. But you have to be careful when you wear contacts. If you aren’t careful about keeping your hands clean when you handle your lenses, you run the risk of getting harmful bacteria in your eye. This can lead to an eye infection. If left untreated, eye infections can end up damaging your vision permanently.

Besides infections, contacts can dry out your eyes, over time, and become uncomfortable. Many people find that, after several years of wearing contacts, they have to go back to glasses for a while. That’s not what you expected when you first got contacts.

You can get rid of these problems with contacts by having your eyesight permanently corrected with LASIK vision correction surgery. This procedure can help you see clearly, usually good enough to pass your driver’s license eye exam. You’ll find that, without contacts, you’ll have few complaints of dry, tired eyes.
