    A Look at the Procedures We Offer

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Advances in vision corrective laser surgery and therapeutic eye-training programs have produced dramatic and rapid vision improvements for many patients. LASIK eye surgery, RevitalVision, and Visian ICL are just some of the state-of-the-art procedures we offer to help patients improve or restore their vision.

    LASIK

    LASIK eye surgery is effective for correcting most cases of astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. In this procedure, a laser creates a corneal flap that is gently moved out of the way to expose the inner tissue of the cornea. Then the Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217z excimer laser reshapes the patient’s cornea using short and cool beam pulses. The actual laser treatment usually takes less than one minute per eye to complete.

    Bladeless LASIK

    Bladeless LASIK is a great alternative for those patients who don’t qualify for a standard LASIK procedure due to dry eyes or thin corneas. Instead of cutting the corneal flap with a laser blade, bladeless LASIK uses the ultra-precise DaVinci Femtosecond laser to create a layer of millions of overlapping air bubbles over the cornea. This method helps form a round shallow area that can be lifted to expose the designated treatment area. For its enhanced precision and safety, bladeless LASIK is the procedure of choice for organizations such as the military and NASA.

    RevitalVision

    RevitalVision is a computer training program designed to improve clarity of vision through neural vision therapy. This procedure trains your brain and your eyes to resist the natural process of presbyopia, a gradual reduction of the ability to focus on close objects.

    Visian ICL

    Visian ICL can treat nearsightedness in patients who are not good candidates for LASIK. In this procedure, a phakic intraocular lens is implanted to permanently correct the eye’s refractive power and give the patient clearer vision at all distances.

    Four Facts About LASIK

    Last updated 5 years ago

    LASIK eye surgery has proven to be an effective way to reduce patients’ dependence on glasses and contact lenses for over a decade. If you are considering LASIK surgery to address a vision impairment issue, take a moment to look over these four facts about the procedure:

    1. LASIK Is Not for Everyone

    LASIK cannot correct everyone’s vision impairments. Pregnant women, children under 18, and people with certain eye disorders are not good candidates for LASIK eye surgery.

    1. LASIK Complications Are Rare

    A ten-year study of LASIK patients conducted by the American Academy of Ophthalmology found the surgery poses no long-term complications in patients. In the decade following the procedure, a majority of patients reported enjoying 20/20 vision, and 97% say they would recommend the procedure to others. 

    1. LASIK Has Worked For Millions of Patients

    Since its introduction in the late 1970’s, more than 17 million people  have been treated for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with LASIK surgery. An estimated 600,000 LASIK procedures are performed each year.

    1. LASIK Is a Low-Pain Procedure with an Overall Easy Recovery

    No needles are needed to numb the treatment area—only a few anesthetic eye drops are required. If you do experience  discomfort afterwards, it’s usually mild and  can be alleviated with ibuprophin. Most patients are able to return to work  the day after the procedure without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

    For more information about bladeless LASIK eye surgery, contact Clear Advantage. Our staff is home to one of the most experienced LASIK vision correction surgeons in New  England,  Dr. N. Timothy Peters, who has performed over 15,000 LASIK procedures to date. Call our Portsmouth office today at (603) 379-6817 for more information. 

    Who Can Benefit from the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL)?

    Last updated 5 years ago

    If you have a high nearsighted (myopic) prescription and you’re considering your options for corrective eye surgery, then you might want to learn about Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery. This operation is more complex than LASIK eye surgery but can also be more effective for some patients. In this article, we’ll go over some of the basics of this operation:

    •  Have your eye history evaluated

    Before you can undergo a vision correction surgery, you will need a complete evaluation to determine your vision acuity, cornea shape, and your previous eye health history to make sure the Visian ICL is the best choice for you. In many cases, LASIK eye surgery is the most ideal form of vision correction surgery, so be sure to educate yourself as much as possible.

    • Make Sure You Don’t Suffer from an Eye Disease

    If you suffer or have suffered from an eye disease such as iritis, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy, then the Visian ICL might not be the best choice for your eyes. These eye conditions are generally associated with other health factors that should be addressed before you undergo surgery. These conditions might also prohibit normal eye and vision development, which would make eye surgery unnecessary. However, there are many other vision corrective products and procedures that can increase your vision acuity.

    •  Weigh your options depending on the size of your prescription

    People who suffer from high myopia (-5.00 to -20.00), or nearsightedness, are the most ideal candidates for the Visian ICL surgery. This surgery involves implanting a thin, plastic lens behind the iris, or colored portion of your eye, and in front of the natural lens of the eye (crystalline lens) so that light reaches the retina properly. This premium procedure is approved by all branches of the military and is designed for patients who have prescriptions not treatable through laser vision correction.

    If you would like to know whether ICL surgery is right for you, then contact Clear Advantage in Portsmouth. Call us at (603) 379-6817 to make an appointment with us today.
