Being visually challenged, whether due to poor eyesight or conditions like glaucoma, can be a frustrating and concerning thing to deal with. However, eye surgery can help you improve your eyesight and, in turn, your daily life, too. Find out more about eye surgery, what it can do for you, and when it becomes necessary with your eye doctors at Brandon Eye Associates in Brandon and Plant City, FL.
What types of eye surgery are available?
Eye surgery can treat several conditions affecting the vision, including glaucoma, cataracts, and retinopathy. Eye surgery may also correct aesthetic issues like crossed eyes, known medically as strabismus surgery. LASIK and PRK surgeries can permanently correct the vision and make the patient see clearly without relying on glasses or contact lenses. Eye surgeries are usually highly successful and have a short recovery time.
Do I need eye surgery?
If you have a condition which affects your eyes or vision, you may benefit from eye surgery. However, not everyone is a good candidate for every eye surgery. Your doctor will help you make the decision to undergo eye surgery based on several factors, including the severity of your condition, your age, your overall general health, and your medical and family history. After taking everything into account, your doctor must also ensure that you are committed to your recovery and willing and/or able to take the necessary precautions or wear the necessary eye protection.
