LASIK surgery can substantially improve a person’s vision if he or she suffers from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

In 2007, this popular professional basketball player underwent LASIK surgery. He stated that the surgery dramatically improved his vision, which was more than he was expecting. As a result of his improved vision, James’ shooting average improved, which he was very grateful for.
This professional golfer underwent LASIK eye surgery for the first time in 1999, and then again 8 years after that.

The professional golfer considers both surgeries a success, and he stated that he never knew what seeing clearly with 20/20 vision was like prior to surgery.
This well-known actress, fashion designer and artist underwent LASIK eye surgery in 2004. Simpson stated that prior to LASIK, she was legally blind and couldn’t see a thing. Her surgery was a big success, enabling her to see better than she could have ever asked for.

The human eye is an amazing organ. It provides us with possibly the most important of our five senses, sight. Sight allows us to observe and learn about everything that surrounds us. Our eyes are used in almost every daily activity. Reading, working, writing or typing letters and e-mails, and driving are just a few. The vast majority of people would agree that sight is the most cherished of all the five senses. Eyes allow us to interpret colors, shapes and dimensions of objects, by processing the light which either emits from them, or bounces off them.

Finances are one of the biggest roadblocks to many vision patients receiving the vision correction they need and want. The cost of LASIK vision surgery is one of the most common questions regarding this popular procedure. Nationally, the average cost for LASIK vision correction is approximately $2,000 per eye. This amount can vary based on area of the country, experience of the provider and the types of technology used. Considering that almost $30 billion a year is poured in the eye products and services by Americans, our eyes and our vision are very important to us.
When visiting an eye specialist Fort Worth patients will find that they specialize in procedures such as LASIK surgery, cataract removal, treatment of eye diseases and/or glasses prescription. However, an interesting fact that many people do not realize is that eye doctors can also detect a wide range of common health problems even before a patient knows that he or she has the problem in question. Health problems that show up when a person has an eye exam include diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and even certain types of cancer.
