There are a number of tests that your eye doctor may conduct during your normal routine eye exam to ensure your vision is at its best. Visual Acuity Test: A Visual Acuity Test is a routine part of an eye examination performed to determine the smallest letters a patient can read on a standardized chart that is 20 feet away. You will be asked to remove your contact lenses or glasses and gently cover one eye with the palm of your hand while reading aloud the smallest line of letters you can read on the chart.
In just a few short years, LASIK, or laser in situ keratomileusis, has become one of the most popular and well-known vision correcting procedures. LASIK is a good option for people who are myopic (nearsighted), hyperopic (farsighted), or who have an astigmatism (irregular curvature of the cornea, causing blurriness). LASIK surgery works by creating a thin flap on the cornea, then gently lifting the flap and applying a laser light to reshape the cornea, enabling you to once again have clear, sharp vision.
LASIK is subject to risks associated with other types of procedures. It's essential that you understand as much as possible about the potential risks of any surgical procedure so that you can make an informed decision. The chance of having a serious vision threatening complication is much less than 1%. To our knowledge, there have been no cases of blindness following LASIK anywhere in the world. As with any medical procedure, there is no guarantee that you will have perfect vision or that you will not need distance or reading glasses again.
