Lasik Eye Surgery
LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.
LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap is in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.
If you are having vision problems, seeing spots, or dealing with anything else related to your vision, we will perform a thorough examination before running some tests to diagnose the problem. We will then talk you through treatment to get your vision where it needs to be.
We are also here for you when you have diseases such as diabetes or glaucoma. We will be with you every step of the way, following up to ensure your eyes are getting the treatment they need. If things are not progressing the way that they should, we will change things.
Cataracts are a leading cause of vision issues for people over 40 and are one of the main causes of blindness. A cataract is a clouding of the eye, specifically in the eye’s lens behind the pupil, caused by proteins clumping together. There are different kinds of cataracts, and they can have different causes. Aging or other medical conditions can contribute to the development of cataracts in your eyes.
Very professional. Excellent work. Happy I had my surgery done by Dr. Somers.
I was very satisfied with the care and patience that Dr. Somers had given me when I had gone in for my eye exam. He put me at ease by answering all of my questions about an eye condition that I have been worried about developing. He's very thorough with his exams, the atmosphere is comforting and the staff is wonderful.
Dr. Somers put in punctal plugs for me. He was so quick it was over before I knew it! And it didn’t hurt a bit. I would definitely recommend him for all your eyecare needs.
