Discover What Laser Vision Correction Procedures Can Help You Toss the Readers

If you use reading glasses, you know the routine. You’re constantly looking for them, breaking them, snagging an extra pair off the rack at the drugstore, and wishing you didn’t have to carry yet another accessory along with your belongings.

Laser Vision Correction Solutions

A consultation with our refractive surgeon provides the expertise you need to determine which type of laser vision correction is suitable for you.

Durrie Vision offers one of the following laser vision correction procedures, dependent on your particular vision needs:

  • SBK Advanced LASIK Surgery
    For patients with presbyopia, a condition that typically affects aging adults and involves the loss of lens elasticity in the eye, SBK Advanced LASIK surgery with Blended Vision is often recommended. This procedure is for patients in their early-to-mid 40s. One eye is treated for distance, and the other is treated for near vision.
  • Refractive Lens Exchange
    Many patients are surprised that there is an alternative to LASIK for adults in their 40s, 50s, and beyond, who are experiencing presbyopia. Much like LASIK, this procedure also provides clearer sight for older adults (typically 40 and older) with farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism.

    If you have blurry, fuzzy vision, or you’re noticing changes in your vision at night, you may be a candidate for refractive lens exchange. While some patients may qualify for LASIK, others may need this type of laser vision correction. Some candidates may ask if they can simply get Advanced SBK LASIK instead, but this would not be a long-term solution if your eyes are already beginning to show the signs of presbyopia and a loss of elasticity. As an additional benefit, patients can even avoid future cataract surgery after a refractive lens exchange procedure.

  • Refractive Cataract Surgery
    For patients with cataracts, Durrie Vision offers an additional solution to remove them. This laser vision correction procedure will also help you get rid of your readers and the frustrations that come with cataracts, farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism.

    If you are noticing yellowed and distorted vision, you may be developing cataracts. However, there is no reason to worry. Cataract surgery no longer involves the processes that you may have heard about in the past. Our quick, effective, technologically advanced surgery provides clearer, sharper vision now. Importantly, cataract surgery may be covered by your private insurance, making the cost of laser vision correction even more appealing.
