Am I a candidate for iLASIK?

istock 1147641999 1 Patients who struggle with refractive errors such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, including problems such as astigmatism, may be tired of dealing with contact lenses and eyeglasses to maintain proper vision. In situations such as this, patients in the areas of Mesquite, NV and St. George, UT may want to ask an eye doctor about the benefits of procedures such as the iLASIK treatment. 

What is iLASIK? 

iLASIK is a specialized type of laser eye surgery that is designed to create better vision without the use of blades. Instead, the iLASIK treatment utilizes a femtosecond laser that creates the corneal flap during the procedure. Additionally, iLASIK utilizes three-dimensional mapping of the patient’s eye to find imperfections and easily reshape the cornea to give patients perfect vision after the treatment. Dr. Sharon Richens of Richens Eye Center is the only location in the Southern Utah area that provides iLASIK surgery for patients.
