Our LASIK surgery is a bladeless option for restoring great vision to those who have required glasses or contacts in the past. This can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Bladeless LASIK surgery is incredibly comfortable and can restore vision without any side effects. Most patients have no discomfort during or after the procedure. We use state-of-the-art technology to improve the precision and accuracy of traditional LASIK surgery even further.
With cataract surgery in the Leland, NC area, we can replace the lens of an eye that is losing its vision due to cloudiness or haziness. Patients may also complain of yellowed vision, difficulty reading and sensitivity to lights. Surgery can restore vision by replacing the faulty lens with a new one. In some cases, patients may even find that they do not need to wear corrective lenses anymore following surgery.
Dry Eye Treatments
Dry eyes are an incredibly common condition that can actually manifest themselves in several different ways. Some of our eye care patients come in complaining of very dry eyes that feel as if they have gravel in them. The white area of the eye may appear red and irritated, and the individual may even complain of difficulty seeing at times. They may have to wear glasses because contacts cause too much discomfort for them. On the other hand, some of our patients come in complaining of very watery eyes. Surprisingly for them, they may also be diagnosed with dry eyes that may manifest themselves with a watery reflex to wind or other irritants. However, watery eyes do not sufficiently make up for the lack of tear film consistent with a dry eye diagnosis.
Many eye conditions must be treated quickly if you want to avoid dangerous consequences, such as increasing eye discomfort or even rapidly deteriorating vision. Our eye care services provide you with everything from education about eye health to surgical treatments to restore vision. At Live Oak Ophthalmology, which serves Leland, NC and the surrounding areas, our goal is to give you excellent quality of life through great vision.
