LASIK Vision Center Marine Park

If you are tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses, you may be thinking about having your vision corrected with LASIK surgery. Many patients who want to have LASIK surgery come into our LASIK vision Center Marine Park, Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, because they know that they will receive excellent eye care.

At our vision practice, patients can receive expert LASIK eye surgery which will allow them to see clearly without wearing prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is important that patients are prescreened before they are approved for this eye surgery. When patients who are qualified have this vision procedure, they generally have excellent results. However, if you are not a good candidate for the procedure, your vision may not be improved or may even be made worse by this surgery. For this reason, we make sure that all of our patients who have the surgery are prescreened and determined to be excellent candidates for the procedure. Our four expert ophthalmologists are Dr. Jacob Ackerman, Dr. Adam Lish, Dr. Dennis Metz and Dr. Jacob C. Shafran. LASIK eye surgery is generally performed on both eyes at a time on an outpatient basis. The patient only needs to receive local anesthesia to the eyes in the form of eye drops. The eye surgery takes a very short amount of time and most patients are able to return to work the very next day. In order to be a good candidate for LASIK surgery, you will need to be over age 18, have not had any vision prescription changes over the past two years, and have excellent eye health. At our LASIK vision center Marine Park, our patients are always very excited to have this eye surgery which will make them able to see perfectly clearly without being dependent on any type of lens prescription.

For an appointment to come to our LASIK vision Center Marine Park to meet with one of our expert eye surgeons, simply contact us today.
