More About Vision Correction at Campen Eye Care
Campen Eye Care facility.
Dr. Campen performs LASIK eye surgery using the latest surgical techniques and laser systems for maximum patient safety, comfort and optimal vision correction results.
After determining a patient's candidacy for LASIK or PRK, Dr. Campen uses leading-edge diagnostic equipment to identify the patient's unique refractive errors. Next, he gently creates the corneal flap, a thin piece of tissue that is lifted from the surface of the eye to expose the underlying cornea. Dr. Campen then employs the leading-edge excimer laser, which reshapes the cornea by removing microscopic fragments of tissue from the eye, thereby correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. Finally, the corneal flap is placed back to its original position to protect the eye during recovery. Dr. Campen also performs PRK for patients whose corneal tissue is too thin for LASIK. Unlike LASIK, PRK involves the removal of the corneal flap, which is naturally regenerated on the surface of the eye during the healing process. Most patients who undergo LASIK or PRK are able to achieve improved vision and greatly reduce their need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
