Alabama LASIK surgeryLASIK eye surgery is a beneficial procedure that helps restore your vision. A new study conducted by the Cornea Research Foundation of America solidifies this concept by revealing new information about people who have used contact lenses prior to their LASIK surgery.

According to the Three-Year Longitudinal Survey Comparing Visual Satisfaction with LASIK and Contact Lenses, patients that previously used contact lenses were more satisfied with their LASIK results a year after their surgery when compared to non contact lens wearers. In fact, 88 percent of former contact users and 77 percent of former glasses wearers reported being strongly satisfied with their LASIK results three years later.

Overall, this study validates the safety and effectiveness of LASIK surgery resulting in patient satisfaction. Dr. Christopher Walton may recommend LASIK surgery if you have vision problems that require the use of contact lenses or glasses, such as:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

Dr. Walton and his experienced team offers vision restoration procedures to people in communities throughout Alabama. To date, he has helped 100% of his patients achieve 20/20 vision or better using advanced LASIK technology.

This procedure can yield life-changing results. To fully determine your candidacy for LASIK surgery, Dr. Walton will meet with you in person to discuss your medical history and overall eye care goals.
