As a LASIK surgery center, we want to help as many patients as possible with their vision problems. You shouldnâ€™t have to suffer through the holidays with vision-correcting contacts and glassesâ€”consider IntraLase LASIK surgery instead.
More than 150 million people in the United States wear glasses to assist with their vision and another 36 million Americans wear contact lenses. More than $15 billion is spent on eyewear every year. The Atlanta Vision Institute is helping patients who need their vision corrected with the Gift of Vision promotion. It will allow you to be as festive as you want this year with 20/20 vision.
In the United States alone, more than 32 million people over the age of 40 suffer from myopia, or nearsightedness, which is the most common refractive problem in the eye. Patients who are nearsighted have eyes that donâ€™t bend or refract light correctly, which causes close objects to look clear and distant objects to look blurry. Over 12 million Americans age 40 and older are afflicted with hyperopia, or farsightedness. Patients who are hyperopic can see far away objects clearly but canâ€™t focus on things that are close to them.
AstigmatismÂ is a prevalent refractive error that happens to one in three people in the United States. It is often seen combined with other vision problems like nearsightedness and farsightedness. Patients suffering from astigmatism have blurry vision because of an imperfectly rounded cornea.
LASIK surgeryÂ is capable of correcting and improving all of these common vision problems. During LASIK surgery, Dr. Ashraf uses a laser to remove corneal tissue and reshape the cornea in order to change how light is focused on the retina. Almost one million refractive surgeries are performed each year in the United States, and almost 96 percent of patients have the vision they want after their LASIK procedure. It is an extremely quick surgery with a very fast recovery time.
The Atlanta Vision Institute is running the Gift of Vision promotion for patients through the end of December. When you purchase IntraLase LASIK surgery for yourself, you will be able to give a free IntraLase LASIK surgery to someone else. This special encourages patients to help others who also have vision problems to achieve their ideal vision, without the need for contacts or glasses. In order to be eligible for the promotion, you must print and fill out the form on our website.
