LASIK for Clearwater, FL, Residents Who Don’t Like Wearing Glasses
LASIK was introduced in 1992, and since then, more than 8 million Americans have undergone this vision correction surgery to eliminate their need for eyeglasses or contacts. If you are a Clearwater resident who wants to enjoy a more active lifestyle free from worrying about losing your eyeglasses or having enough contact lenses on hand, why not consider LASIK? With technological advancements, LASIK has grown safer and more effective at treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism—the three main types of refractive errors. St. Michael’s Eye & Laser Institute, located just up the road from you, is a family-owned and -operated clinic that has maintained a 100% success rate with LASIK.
A Comfortable Environment for Vision Care
Named an Alcon Center of Excellence for our leading-edge use of vision technology, we are also known for our personalized and compassionate eye care. We understand that medical procedures can be a source of anxiety for some, so we will keep you relaxed and comfortable from the moment you step into our facility. You can count on that.
A Safe Procedure
LASIK is a safe and painless outpatient procedure with a low rate of complications and risks. After the procedure, your eyes may feel gritty, scratchy, or itchy, but that usually goes away completely within a few days. Usually, patients can expect improved vision—without glasses or contacts—immediately after the procedure. Many patients are able to drive within a week, with vision continuing to improve and stabilize over the next three to six months.
We Also Perform Epi-LASKI
Epi-LASIK is an updated version of LASIK that results in reduced eye discomfort and faster healing. It provides more stability for the cornea and is a better alternative for some patients. To find out if you are a good candidate for either LASIK or epi-LASIK, contact St. Michael’s Eye & Laser Institute to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from all neighborhoods in Clearwater.
