Laser vision correction is a permanent procedure that can change the way you view the world! This exciting technology has the ability to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contact lenses whether you’re nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.
Over 16 million laser vision correction procedures have been performed in the US in the past 16 years. Based on the patient data submitted for FDA approval, 100% of the patients treated experienced improvement in uncorrected vision (vision without glasses or contacts). Most people return to normal activities within two to three days. The vast majority of patients who have had the procedure are able to pass a driver’s test without glasses or contacts.
We understand how important this decision is for you and how difficult it is to sort out all of the information. That is why Dr. Steck, Dr. Woody, Dr. Nowell and Dr. Tanner, as your primary eye doctors, are your resource for information on all of you options in vision correction, whether your choice is glasses, contact lenses or surgery.
Should you choose laser vision correction, we can perform your pre-procedure evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate and which procedure is best for your visual condition. We work closely with your laser surgeon to develop a treatment plan for your vision, and we will be assisting at the laser center the day of your procedure. We will monitor your progress during the first year following your surgery, to assure you receive the best results from your procedure.
We believe experience counts, which is why we have been involved in the care of laser vision correction patients for over fifteen years. Our doctors have some of the most experience in the Southeast in achieving excellent results with laser vision correction. In fact, Dr. Steck and Dr. Nowell both have personal experience,with their lasik surgeries being performed by Dr. Jonathan Woolfson in January 1998 and May 2013, respectively. They both still enjoy 20/20 distance vision today!
