Genstler Eye Center is pleased to offer a 100 percent Blade-Free LASIK procedure for a safer, pain-free experience and more precise vision correction. This next generation of laser vision correction makes it possible for many of our patients to achieve better than 20/20 vision.

 

LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) corrects high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism using a laser to change the curvature of the eye. Compared with other methods of vision correction, Blade-Free LASIK results in fewer side effects and complications. In fact, most of our LASIK patients notice a significant improvement in their vision soon after surgery.

Flexible Spending Accounts!

Flexible spending accounts (FSA) allow use of tax-free money to reimburse for eligible medical expenses, like LASIK. Remember, FSA enrollment periods are brief and yours may open soon. Speak with your employee benefits advisor at work now. You may have money in your FSA account that you need to spend before the end of your benefit period. Consider using funds in your flexible spending account for LASIK!

Clear Lens Exchange

As we age, the lens inside our eye loses its ability to focus both near and far. We start to develop what is called presbyopia, better known as "short arm disease!" You may find that your arms can't stretch far enough to read the newspaper anymore. Most people who experience presbyopia have to wear bifocals or reading glasses.

 

A clear lens exchange corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia. A clear lens exchange uses some of the same successful techniques as cataract surgery to replace the eye's natural lens with a customized artificial lens that corrects your vision.

 

Patients undergoing a clear lens exchange tend to enjoy short recovery time, minimal discomfort during and after surgery and the ability to resume normal activities without the dependence of glasses shortly after surgery.

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive keratectomy reshapes the outer layer of the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The procedure uses the same laser as the LASIK procedure.

 

Although LASIK is more common these days, PRK is a good alternative for patients who cannot undergo LASIK surgery because their cornea is too thin. While LASIK patients have less discomfort and obtain good vision more quickly after surgery, improvement with PRK is gradual and takes weeks or even months to achieve the visual outcome goal. Our skilled doctors can help you assess which procedure is right for you.

Cataract Surgery at My Age?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside your eye. Most of the time, it is caused by the changes of natural aging but sometimes it results from an eye injury. A cataract is not a film over the eye and neither diet, vitamins, eye drops or lasers will correct it. The only way to correct a cataract is surgery.

 

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed medical procedure in the world. In fact, the doctors at Genstler Eye Center perform more than 1,500 cataract procedures every year! We are proud to offer our patients the most advanced technology to restore their full range of vision.

 

Patients undergoing cataract surgery tend to enjoy short recovery time, minimal discomfort during and after the procedure and the ability to resume normal activities without the dependence of glasses shortly after surgery.

 

It's important for you to know all of your options for cataract surgery. During your cataract procedure the doctor will replace your natural lens with one of the following types of artificial lenses:

 

Lifestyle Lens

This lens will allow you to see things at a distance (watching TV), at an intermediate range (computer work), and at near range (reading the newspaper), reducing the need for glasses. You may still need glasses for some near activities, such as reading a prescription bottle.

 

Toric Lens

Astigmatism is due to an irregularly shaped cornea (front surface of the eye). Astigmatism causes distorted vision, which can be corrected at the time of surgery with a toric artificial lens. You will have sharp vision but will still need glasses for certain activities.

 

Standard Lens

This lens will help you focus at a distance (watching TV or driving) or at a near range (reading a newspaper or book). It cannot focus at more than one distance, so you will need glasses for most activities.
