With summer quickly approaching people turn to lasik for the freedom it affords

Posted on May 07 2011 by Lawrence Zweibel

Whether you like to swim, hike, go boating or visit the beach freedom from glasses and contact lenses is a definite plus.    

It's no wonder that at North Shore Eye Care we have seen a big influx of patient's desiring lasik.  Known for the excellent vision that it affords recent studies have shown that lasik results have continued to improve over the past decade.  One large study performed at TLC involving 11,727 over a 10 year period confirms this.  In the year 2000 75% of all patients achieved 20/20 vision at the 3 month mark.  In 2009 this percentage increased to 93%.  This raised the curosity of the people performing this study.  While it is known that very few people can read the 20/15 line even with their best pair of glasses or contacts they found that in 2010 63% of their patients could read this line following lasik.

Our experience at North Shore Eye Care parallels this experience.  These results are attributable not only to the expertise of our surgeons but to newer technological improvements such as bladeless flap creation thanks to modern femptosecond lasers as well as customvue corrections using wavefront technology.

All people wishing to avail themselves of this wonderful new technology are welcome to come to one of monthly lasik seminars where $1000 is discounted from the price of the procedure for all attendees.  Or simply come for a free consultation.  You will be impressed with the quality of care offered at North Shore Eye Care, the Lasik surgeons of the New York Mets and the eye team physicians of the Islanders.
