I have really enjoyed my experiences at Cohen Eye Associates. Dr. Buchner is a spectacular physician with a great touch. I couldn’t even see out of my right eye and now I have 20/20 vision. Tomorrow I will have my left eye done and I expert to be without glasses for the first time in 50 years.
You can’t go wrong using Cohen Eye Associates!
How LASIK Works
Clear vision occurs when light rays enter the eye through the cornea, or front layer of the eye, and then refract, or focus, to a single point on the retina. The retina collects this optical information and sends it to the brain, where it is processed as an image. When the eye is too short, too long, or irregularly shaped, the light rays are not able to focus correctly on the retina. Dr. Cohen can correct several refractive errors by precisely reshaping the cornea during LASIK eye surgery at our St. Louis office.
Dr. Cohen and LASIK with IntraLase can help you achieve all of this—while adding the assurance of knowing you are being treated with the most advanced technology available.
What LASIK Can Treat
Patients with hyperopia have eyes that are too short or corneas that are too flat. Images do not have enough space to focus properly on the retina. These people can see objects that are far away but have trouble with close-up activities like reading and sewing.
Patients with myopia have eyes that are too long or corneas that are too steeply curved. The light rays entering the eyes focus at a point in front of the retina and, as a result, are unfocused again by the time they reach the retina. These people can see objects that are close up, but objects farther away are blurry.
Patients with astigmatism have eyes with irregularly curved corneas. Images tend to focus on the retina in two places, causing blurred or double vision.
