We all want a younger, fresher appearance and no one really wants the hassle of caring for contact lenses or glasses. When I ask patients why they have put off LASIK eye surgery, the major reason they give is cost. However, the cost of LASIK may be more affordable than you think! In fact, it will even SAVE you money in the long run!

During the early days of corrective eye surgery, doctors were limited to what they could actually correct and many of us were not considered candidates. These days we have numerous options for vision correction: LASIK, PRK, Refractive Lens Exchange, ICL or Implantable Contact Lenses and Cataract surgery. We can now correct many types of vision problems, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and even presbyopia, another type of farsightedness that increases as we age.

These days, digital devices permeate every aspect of our lives. We are constantly using our smartphones, iPods, tablets, computers, laptops and video game consoles. It isn’t any wonder that many of us suffer from CVS: Computer Vision Syndrome. This is a fancy name for EYE STRAIN.

We have all heard the word ASTIGMATISM, but what is it?!?! Breathe easy, it’s not a disease, it’s just a refractive error like nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia) and yes, in most cases, it is treatable! LASIK with astigmatism can be a viable treatment option, even if you were told you were not a candidate in the past.

Many of us take our vision for granted until we reach our 40’s. One day we notice we can’t see our cellphone. Next we are struggling to see our computer, and then we finally realize our distance vision isn’t as clear as it once was. We are suffering from Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome.

The reason we all want LASIK refractive surgery is that it gives us freedom from glasses and contact lenses. We have a younger, fresher appearance without glasses and no longer have to deal with the hassle or caring for contact lenses. You may have held off on LASIK due to the LASIK eye surgery cost. However, the cost of LASIK may be more affordable than you think.

Something we hear often at LaserVue from our LASIK, PRK and our other laser eye surgery patients is “I wish that I had done this years ago!” The reason they give is simple: they were afraid and didn’t know whom they could entrust with their vision. There are many ophthalmologists in the area, but who is really the best eye surgeon in Orlando for your laser eye surgery?

This isn’t your grandma’s cataract surgery! When you hear the word “cataract”, typically you think of your parents and grandparents. A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of your eye. You can be born with cataracts, or they can form after certain diseases or eye injury.

Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome, or DLS, is the progressive loss of function of the natural lenses inside your eye. The lens is clear and flexible when you are born. These lenses have miraculous flexibility which allows them to change shape and focus so you can see both far and near objects. Most of us take this for granted until our 40’s when the gradual loss of this flexibility finally results in the need for reading glasses, bifocals or even lens replacement.

Most patients assume that they are a candidate for LASIK surgery and are surprised when they learn during the consultation that Dr. Magruder recommends PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) eye surgery instead.

The only thing better than getting a holiday present is GIVING a holiday present. We spend days, weeks and months agonizing over getting that perfect gift. Far too many times we buy something that we think is perfect, only to learn later it was the wrong size, wrong color or not something that was wanted or needed in the first place.

By LaserVue Orlando

What happens to those of us who are too nearsighted for LASIK or PRK eye surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy)? If you are not considered a good candidate for laser eye surgery, want to avoid major eye surgery, or don’t have time to recover from LASIK, ICL surgery may be your best choice for excellent vision.

In the Orlando area, the name Magruder is synonymous with quality eye care. Dr. Magruder sees each of his consultations PERSONALLY and giving them his undivided attention, resulting in outstanding surgical results. His goal is to give all patients the one on one, custom care that is lacking in healthcare today. In 1996 LaserVue Orlando began when Dr. Magruder decided to devote his practice strictly to refractive surgery.

Let’s talk about money. Do not base your decision on who can do your laser eye surgery for the least amount of money. If this is the case, put your contacts back in and start saving until you can make your decision based on experience, latest technology and a LASIK eye surgeon with deep roots in your town. A LASIK eye surgeon should be able to evaluate you and tell you how much.

We have all seen that coupon in the Sunday paper “$299* per eye for LASIK Eye Surgery”. What we fail to notice is that tiny, starry looking thingy next to the nine. It is called an asterisk, and it means, “watch out.”
