Learning More About LASIK: The reality of LASIK is that it is the most popular Laser Eye Surgery performed today. However, LASIK Eye Surgery is one of a number of eye surgery procedures for the correction of nearsightedness-or myopia, farsightedness-or hyperopia, and astigmatism, that your LASIK surgeon may suggest as a way to correct your vision if you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. LASIK Surgeons such as Dr. Hunter, Dr. Bakewell, and the practice staff will evaluate you thoroughly to help you make the best decision for your individual needs. Although LASIK Surgery is the Laser Eye Surgery procedure of choice for most patients, Dr. Hunter, Dr. Bakewell, and the practice staff may also suggest Custom Wavefront Lasik or other types of laser eye surgery including PRK, Epi-LASIK, LASEK or monvision LASIK for presbyopia to help those who might need help with close vision and reading.

Successful LASIK Surgery requires an experienced LASIK surgeon who demonstrates consistent TLC for LASIK  patients in order to provide a thorough Consultation for LASIK plus Laser Vision Correction expectations that are realistic- Dr. Hunter, Dr. Bakewell, and the practice staff offer expertise and experience in LASIK plus Tucsonconvenience to help you achieve your vision correction goals. Choosing trusted LASIK Surgeons who are LASIK doctors as well as LASIK specialists is key to getting the best LASIK Surgeon.

In the event that you are not a candidate for LASIK or any type of laser eye surgery as a result of being extremely nearsighted, your surgeon may suggest the Visian ICL Implantable Contact Lens to correct your vision.

If you are not a candidate for LASIK because you have the begining of a cataract or perhaps because you are over 45 and are presbyopic beyond a point where monnovision LASIK might be appropriate, your surgeon may suggest Lens Replacement Surgery using the AcrySof®ReSTOR® Lens in Tucson, the ReZoom™ Multifocal Lens in Tucson, the Tecnis® Multifocal Lens or Crystalens® in Tucson.
