The eyes are one of the most sensitive organs in the human body. They are vulnerable to multiple threats, which can negatively affect how they execute their role. Our team at Cape Fear Eye Associates takes eye health seriously and we strive to provide quality treatment for our patients. Our eye doctors in Fayetteville may recommend a refractive procedure to correct a vision problem. Let’s take a look at these procedures and how they can help you see clearly.
What Is a Refractive Procedure?
It is a surgery conducted to correct a vision problem. Our eye doctors deal with some common vision problems that demand refractive procedures. Some of these conditions include:
What to Expect When You Visit Our Clinic
Our ophthalmologists and optometrists have extensive experience and training and will ensure you receive outstanding treatment. In the case of surgery, our ophthalmologists will step in and conduct the surgery.
Modern Testing Equipment
We understand the role played by accurate testing in the treatment process. Eye doctors perform best when they have modern and efficient testing tools at their disposal. Such tools must be sophisticated and modern to diagnose even the most complicated eye condition with accuracy. We have tools like tonometers, phoropters, retinoscopes, and auto retractors to ensure the accuracy of our diagnostics.
When Surgery is the Answer
Several vision problems can be corrected using contact lenses or eyeglasses. Some of our patients choose to receive a refractive surgical procedure to correct their vision. These procedures are safe and the recovery period is brief. Our eye doctors are here for you every step of the way before, during, and after the procedure.
LASIK is the most common refractive procedure used to correct vision. It involves a laser to reshape the cornea in the eye which is used to focus light on the retina. LASIK surgery has been used for decades and the technology has advanced throughout the years. It can be performed on an outpatient basis and often takes less than ten minutes per eye. Our ophthalmologists provide quality surgical services to improve the vision of our patients.
