Brinton Vision Published Blog Post Detailing Who Is A Candidate For LASIK

Brinton Vision, based in St. Louis, Missouri, is reaching out to the wider community to announce that they have published a blog titled “Who is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery?” As the clinic explains, LASIK, or Laser In Situ Keratomileusis, is a life-changing vision correction procedure that can treat farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia), over-40 vision (presbyopia) and astigmatism.

Dr. Jason P. Brinton, founder of Brinton Vision, says, “Our sole goal at Brinton Vision is to change patients’ lives through the priceless gift of sight.” So much of life is taken in through our eyes. There are too many remarkable things to see and experience to let glasses and contacts obstruct your view of this amazing world we live in. Fortunately, in this modern era, LASIK and six alternatives could be the answer to restoring your vision without needing glasses or contacts.

He continues, “LASIK eye surgery has helped millions of people worldwide achieve a level of visual freedom that they can’t otherwise get. While surgical procedures can be used to correct a range of refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, these conditions alone won’t necessarily qualify you for refractive surgery.”

In the blog post, Dr. Brinton explains: “A vision correction specialist must consider a number of factors when making the determination of whether a patient is a good candidate for LASIK. If you’re considering LASIK or one of the six modern alternatives, a vision correction specialist will first need to ensure you meet the main criteria.”

One such criterion is that the patient’s eyes are generally healthy. Given that eye diseases and injuries can greatly affect eye surgery and healing, they must often be resolved to a stable point before someone can have laser eye surgery. If, for example, the patient suffers from dry eye syndrome, an eye infection, elevated eye pressure or retinal conditions, the vision correction surgeon will want to treat the condition or have the condition further evaluated prior to a vision correction procedure.

For those of you that are pregnant or nursing, congratulations! However, if you are pregnant or nursing, unfortunately you will have to wait a little while before getting a vision correction procedure. Brinton Vision explains that pregnancy produces hormones that can affect just about every system and part of the body, including the eyes. During pregnancy, temporary changes to the eye can make this a less-than-ideal time for a permanent corrective procedure. Laser eye surgery is not a good idea while pregnant or nursing as the post-operative drops including steroids or antibiotics that are prescribed to promote healing after LASIK may pose a risk to the baby. The full blog post that lists the rest of the criteria and provides more details can be found on the Brinton Vision website.

Dr. Brinton explains, “Our commitment is to provide the best LASIK surgery that St. Louis has to offer. To that end, we focus exclusively on LASIK and laser vision correction at Brinton Vision. Every member of our team is dedicated to doing the best for our patients and ensuring that their sight is restored to the best possible state.”

The effectiveness and efficiency of the services provided by Brinton Vision are reflected in the reviews left behind by satisfied patients. In a recent review, Caroline Pullman says, “I couldn’t be happier with my experience at Brinton Vision. I have been wearing glasses since I was in 3rd grade and am nearing 30 now. My prescription was so strong that my lenses came out the front and the back of my glasses. I knew it was time to do something about it. Every single technician I worked with was polite, cheerful and helpful. I had the ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) procedure done and it has changed my life. Before my procedure, I couldn’t see the single biggest letter the screen could provide me. Now, one month later, I am seeing 20/16, one line better than perfect vision. If you’re considering having any eye procedure done, I would highly encourage you to call and make an appointment. They will go over every aspect of your eye with you and lay out all of your options. There is financing available to help, with no huge upfront costs. Overall, 100% recommended Brinton Vision!”
