San Francisco, Marin, Peninsula, East & South Bay Laser Vision Correction, LASIK, Lens, Cataract & Laser Eye Surgery
While some of us are lucky to have perfect vision throughout our lifetime, many are not. Impairments can be the result of problems in the way our eyes are built or in some cases, changes take place over time. No matter what the cause, with the advanced vision correction procedures, Pacific Vision Institute can improve your vision and even turn back the clock by years or even decades. We understand your desire for great vision and we can help you in your quest.
Vision correction procedures reshape the optics of your eyes to perfect your focus. Since the advent of laser-based procedures such as LASIK, much research and innovation has followed. Today there exists a myriad of procedures to solve nearly every level of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and other imperfections in vision.
At Pacific Vision Institute, we use the latest technology to carefully evaluate your individual vision condition and recommend eye surgery options that are right for you. The depth of our experience enables us to accurately diagnose the viability of different treatment options for you. And every step of the way we answer your questions to alleviate any of your concerns with facts and sound advice.
Pacific Vision is the first center in the Bay Area to perform IntraLASIK, which offers a remarkable advancement in vision correction. With this procedure, the levels of safety and precision have...
LASIK is a vision correction option for patients who had previous vision correction procedures, such as radial keratotomy, for example, and for those with certain corneal conditions.
With PRK/LASEK/Epi-LASIK, the excimer laser is applied directly to the surface of the cornea to reshape it, correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and focusing the image directly on the retina.
Thanks to the advances in technology, known as the Wavefront vision mapping, we can measure and address visual disorders that previously could not even be detected.
ICL works with the eye to correct extreme cases of nearsightedness and farsightedness and is a great alternative for those who are not candidates for laser vision correction.
OCT is a non-contact, non-invasive imaging technique used to obtain high resolution cross-sectional scans of the cornea to enhance diagnostic accuracy in determining what procedure is best for you.
NearVision CK is a non-laser vision-correction procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to increase corneal focusing power, improve near vision, and help patients over 40 see better without reading glasses.
Patients with extreme nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism who are not candidates for cataract or ICL procedures, may benefit from Refractive Lens Exchange.
As we get older, the lens of the eye may cloud as it matures. Significant cataract can cause blurry or double vision, and even glare at night. Treatment involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear lens.
Intacs are fine strips of transparent material that are applied to the periphery of the cornea in order to reshape it, correcting certain thinning conditions, such as keratoconus. Intacs can also be used in select patients with mild nearsightedness.
With PTK, a corneal specialist can treat conditions such as corneal opacities, scarring, irregular surfaces, and erosions. Good success rates are observed with improved vision and reduction of corneal irritation.
Patients with significant irregularity or thinning of the cornea, who are not candidates for either laser vision correction or Intacs will require a corneal transplant.
