Many people have some sort of vision impairment problem that keeps them from seeing with 20/20 vision on a regular basis. Some of the more common vision conditions may include nearsightedness, far sightedness and astigmatism. Each of these vision impairments is treated with the help of glasses or contacts, but many people do not like relying on either method to see every day. If you are looking for a solution other than glasses or contacts that can help improve your vision, our ophthalmologist in Henderson can provide you with implantable contact lenses here at NV Eye Surgery.
Technology is constantly advancing. New methods of vision correction are being developed all the time, so there are plenty of new ways to fix your poor vision. One of the more popular surgical methods used to rectify vision impairments is LASIK surgery, but LASIK can have certain side-effects for patients who are nearsighted. Nearsightedness is also known as myopia. This particular vision impairment is caused by the shape of the cornea, which happens to be more rounded and conical than it should be. An eye with no vision impairment has a cornea that is perfectly dome shaped. A cornea that is more conical will filter light differently than intended, which is what makes it more difficult for patients with myopia to see objects that are far away. Here at NV Eye Surgery, our ophthalmologist in Henderson can provide interested patients with implantable contact lenses instead. Dr. DeBry can offer nearsighted patients an alternative to LASIK surgery that does like have the same side-effects. You will be fitted with a Staar Visian ICL, or implantable collamer lens that is specifically designed for individuals with myopia.
