    RevitalVision After Cataract Surgery

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Cataract surgery is used to replace eye lenses that have been damaged by cataracts. When an affected lens is replaced by an artificial intraocular lens, the patient regains clear vision.

    If you have had cataract surgery, RevitalVision offers you a way to improve your result by retraining your vision systems. Learn more about RevitalVision, a non-surgical training program, by watching this video.

    RevitalVision can also help patients who have noticed a decline in their vision quality, who have had LASIK, or who have reduced night vision. Clear Advantage in Portsmouth offers the RevitalVision program to assist our patients in improving their vision. Call Clear Advantage today at (603) 379-6817 to schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors.

    How Do Your Eyes Work?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    The human body is a complex and fascinating machine with thousands of parts and systems that must work together seamlessly. Your eyes are no exception—although they are only an inch in diameter, your eyes have several parts which must work in unison to focus and filter light, allowing you to see the world around you.

    • The Cornea

    Light enters the eye through the cornea, which is a thin, clear layer that covers the eye’s outer edge. The light that comes through the cornea is refracted, or bent, as it enters the pupil.

    • The Iris

    The colored portion of the eye, called the iris, can contract and dilate to change the size and shape of the pupil, which is the black center of the eye. As the iris forces the pupil to open or close, the amount of light entering the eye changes.

    • The Lens and Retina

    Behind the iris and pupil lies the lens. The lens of the eye functions much like the lens of a camera. Light focused by the lens is projected onto the retina at back of the eye. The retina is the part of your eye which contains photosensitive cells, called rods and cones. Cone cells help you to see in bright light and provide clear central vision. In addition, cone cells are good at helping you see color and details. Rod cells assist in peripheral vision, help you see in situations with limited light, and perceive movement. The light captured by the retina is transformed into an electrical signal that is sent to the brain through the optic nerve. The brain then uses the information from the eye to produce an image.

    If your vision isn’t crystal clear or if you are tired of wearing glasses or contacts, it’s time to consider LASIK surgery. Contact Clear Advantage and meet with an ophthalmologist to discuss your candidacy for LASIK eye surgery. Make an appointment by calling (603) 379-6817.

    A Look at Life After LASIK

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Anyone who wears contact lenses or eyeglasses understands the hassle associated with these vision correction options. Contact wearers must purchase and use specific cleaning solutions, storage devices, and eye drops. Eyeglass wearers must frequently clean their lenses, carry both standard eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses, and carefully protect their glasses with bulky cases. LASIK eye surgery, on the other hand, offers a permanent, easy solution for achieving clear vision.

    Greater Convenience

    Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. You must fumble in the dark to find your corrective lenses so you can safely navigate your way to the bathroom. After LASIK surgery, you’ll awake to clear vision without any blur or hassle. LASIK surgery also simplifies activities such as swimming, as you’ll have no glasses or contacts to keep track of. These are just a few of the situations which demonstrate the convenience of life after having LASIK surgery.

    Lower Health Risks

    Wearing contact lenses carries a risk of eye infection. Daily care is essential to keeping contacts clean. Even with regular cleaning, there is a possibility of infection, which can put your eyes and vision in danger. LASIK surgery corrects vision permanently, eliminating the risk posed by wearing contact lenses.

    Fewer Expenses

    The cost of LASIK eye surgery exceeds the initial cost of eyeglasses or contacts. However, over time, you’ll spend less money by having LASIK surgery. LASIK surgery has a one-time cost, while wearing glasses or contacts requires repeat costs over your lifetime. Eyeglass frames have to be replaced every few years, while their lenses must be changed whenever your prescription changes. Contacts are typically disposable and have to be purchased on an ongoing basis. In addition, contacts require special cleaning and storage solutions, which are additional expenses.

    Learn more about LASIK surgery by calling Portsmouth’s Clear Advantage at (603) 379-6817. Our experienced ophthalmologist can meet with you to discuss how LASIK eye surgery can help you correct your vision. We also offer other vision correction solutions.
