Triangle Visions Optometry of Durham provides treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.
Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Triangle Visions Optometry of Durham. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.
Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)
Orthokeratology is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight.
When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results.
Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK)
This exciting new technology offers patients the opportunity to have great vision without contact lenses or glasses!
- Decreased dependability on contact lenses or eyeglasses
- Increased flexibility with sports, camping, traveling, etc.
- The advantage of state of the art equipment and world class surgeons
Our office is one of the leading laser vision practices in central North Carolina. In fact, Dr. Tucker and Dr. Anthony Clark have both had the procedure done themselves. We work very closely with both Duke Eye Center and The Treatment Laser Center of Raleigh, two of the premier laser centers in North Carolina.
To speak with someone about the procedure, call our office today and ask for one of our laser vision coordinators (919.544.2020 or 800.613.EYES).
Low Vision Therapy
Low vision is a general term that refers to a partial loss of vision that cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery.
