About Laser Eye Surgery


About Laser Eye Surgery at Center for Sight serving Fall River, Massachusetts and greater Providence, Rhode Island

By Keegan Johnson, M.D.

During the past four decades Laser Eye Surgery has become a useful and important tool for many types of eye care for the doctors at Center for Sight in Fall River. Patients and eye doctors have witnessed significant changes in Laser Eye Surgery that have resulted from advances in technology and evolution of improved surgery procedures.  In many cases, the creation of new vision correction procedures and eye disease surgical treatments have helped to preserve or even enhance vision. This has allowed the development of Laser Vision Correction, including Bladeless LASIK for common vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.  Laser treatment options are also available for complex eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal vascular disease, glaucoma and as an adjunct to modern cataract surgery.  Many of these treatment options were simply not possible using conventional ophthalmic surgery techniques. These Laser Eye Surgery developments have not only brought new treatment options, but in most cases have brought better outcomes in terms of patient quality of life through the preservation and enhancement of vision.
