4 Vision Disorders that LASIK Surgery Can Correct

Vision disorders can occur for multiple reasons, injury, and age are a few of the reasons our Orange County patients consider lasik vision correction as an excellent option.

Custom Lasik or PRK are the preferred laser surgery methods for correcting vision disorders such as patients that are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism.



In myopia, people can see close objects clearly but not distance. In acute cases, the severity of short-sightedness can have a severe impact on the vision. Short-sightedness tends to occur if a person’s eyeball is too long or the cornea has excessive curvature.

LASIK Surgery corrects the vision by creating a smaller flap in the cornea’s surface using a laser or microkeratome blade. Use of numbing drops makes the treatment painless.

The treatment is quick and leaves the patient no longer dependent on glasses or contact lenses. Many of our Orange County Lasik patients have experienced better than 20/20 vision after the procedure.


This vision disorder, the distant objects seem clearer rather than the closer ones, a defect resulting from the eye being too short, which tends to inflict the image entering the eye not very clear.

Hyperopia causes fatigue, headaches, burning eyes and irritability. LASIK eye surgery not only aims to change the shape of the cornea permanently but will also improve vision.

LASIK surgery eliminates or decreases the dependency on wearing contact lenses or glasses. With its accuracy in the results, LASIK surgery is highly preferred. With over 50,000 LASIK surgeries performed to date, you’re sure to love what you see!


Because of the oddly shaped cornea, the light entering the eye bends unequally which blurs the vision and causes vision distortion.

Squinting is common in people who are suffering from astigmatism which causes headaches from the strain of concentration.

LASIK treatment is permanent and can fully correct astigmatism. Use of ultra-precise lasers in LASIK surgery can be programmed to reshape the cornea in which the front surface of the eye is more symmetrical which ultimately eliminates the vision problems caused by astigmatism.


This vision disorder is mostly common in people aged over 40. Presbyopia is an indispensable age-related vision problem but there is a number of treatment options to restore the vision. The assistance of multi-focal LASIK eye surgery by our Orange County Ophthalmologist Dr. Alexandra® focuses on improving the depth of clear vision focus at any distance.

In the healthcare industry, LASIK is a safe, effective surgery that can take less than 20 minutes. Often times when patients come in for a LASIK consultation with Dr. Alexandra®, they choose to have the laser vision correction on the same day.
