Cook & Hayden Vision Care Center in Brighton, MI provides treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.
Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)
Orthokeratology, Ortho-K for short, refers to a process involving specially designed contact lenses. The contact lenses, worn while you sleep, reshape the corneal surface in your eyes. It’s an excellent choice for people who are nearsighted and no longer wish to wear corrective glasses or daily contacts but are not yet interested in Lasik surgery.
Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis, otherwise known as laser eye surgery or LASIK, has been a part of the repertoire of many skilled ophthalmologists for years. It involves using laser technology to adjust the shape of the cornea to correct vision issues such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Patients from all walks of life have reported excellent results after having LASIK performed, but like other surgeries, the quality of pre-care and aftercare are essential components of lasting good results.
