North Texas Eye Care Elective Refractive Surgery

Cataract

If you are experiencing clouding, glare, or halo in your vision, you may have cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the natural crystallinelens which leads to a decrease in visual accuity. If you are noticing any of the signs and symptoms of cataracts, please make an appointment with our office for a consultation. We can evaluate the density and severity of the cataracts and also provide direction in choosing the correct replacement intra-ocular lens for you. Our ophthalmologist provides the newest and latest technologies in regards to intra-ocular lenses (Crystalens, Calhoun, Tecnis, Trulign, Nano-flex, and Acrysof Toric). After cataract surgery, many patients do not require future eyeglass correction.

Lasik

If you are interested in having crystal clear vision without using your glasses or contact lenses, we can determine if you would be a candidate for customized LASIK. LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a procedure in which an ophthalmologist uses a laser to re-shape the cornea to provide clear vision for patients with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism (abnormally shaped corneas). If you are interested in a LASIK consultation, please make an appointment with our office. After completing the surgery with our ophthalmologist, we will be your post operative care physician.

PRK

PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, is an elective refractive surgery to correct myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism. Unlike LASIK, PRK removes the outermost layer of the cornea (epithelium) to re-shape the cornea. Often times this can reduce the common side effect of dry eye syndrome post elective refractive surgery. If you are interested in a PRK consultation, please make an appointment with our office. After completing the surgery with our ophthalmologist, we will be your post operative care physician.
