Low Vision Therapy at Cargo Eye Care of Las Colinas
Did you know there are a handful of vision issues that can’t be corrected with traditional measures like medication, LASIK, corneal reshaping or even eyeglasses and contact lenses?
We call the condition Low Vision and it can be caused by a number of issues including degenerative retinal diseases, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and atrophy of the optic nerve.
Low Vision Therapy begins with a thorough examination of the eyes to determine your precise visual abilities. Our team can then prescribe low vision devices and train you on the proper ways to use them.
Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)
If you have mild astigmatism or are nearsighted due to a misshapen cornea, you may benefit from corneal reshaping. Unlike laser vision correction (LASIK), this type of corneal reshaping is accomplished with special contact lenses that are used to gently reshape the cornea to improve your eyesight.
Note: While this treatment option can be quite successful, it should be noted that the reshaping is not permanent. You will need to continue to wear the lenses each night in order to maintain the results.
If want to see clearly and also want to be free from the hassles of glasses and contacts, LASIK remains one of the most popular treatment options in America today. Millions have taken the plunge!
Imagine your life…without distractions, without hassles…with the freedom to go out and do you – whatever that looks like for you. Whether you’re scaling a mountain or climbing the corporate ladder. Teaching, parenting, serving, traveling…whatever it is you do. LASIK can help you do it better.
Millions of people enjoy improved eyesight due to LASIK technology. During LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis), the team at Cargo Eye Care will use a laser to permanently reshape your cornea.
While LASIK can be a great option for a wide variety of issues including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, LASIK is not always the best option for every person. To discover if LASIK is right for you, schedule an appointment with our optometrist.
