LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.

While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Dr. Snyder will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.

 

Cataract/Clear Lensectomy

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens, which leads to a progressive blurring or dimming of vision. It is the world’s leading cause of blindness and among the most common conditions related to aging – by age 65, you have a 50 percent chance of developing a cataract, and, by age 75, it jumps to 70 percent.

A cataract starts out small and initially has little or no effect on vision. As the cataract progresses, it becomes harder to read and perform other normal tasks. In the early stages,  may recommend stronger eyeglasses and adjusting your lighting to reduce glare. When cataracts disrupt your daily life, Dr. Snyder may recommend cataract-removal surgery, which is one of the most frequent and successful procedures done in the U.S.
