Dr. Teahan has performed LASIK since it was approved by the FDA in the 1990s. He is experienced, skilled and will honestly advise you of your candidacy for vision correction and the options available.
The LASIK procedure (also known as laser vision correction or refractive surgery) permanently reshapes the cornea – the outer window of the eye – so that the light focuses more precisely on the retina. LASIK reduces or eliminates conditions like near or farsightedness and astigmatism. The computer-guided Excimer Laser creates extremely accurate, intense pulses of light that vaporize cells, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched.
Careful consideration should be given when considering LASIK or any refractive procedure. We invite you to schedule a complimentary evaluation with Dr. Teahan. To schedule your evaluation call us at (505) 219-4034 or email us at Eyes@SouthWestEyeCare.com. For more information, please contact our Refractive Surgery Coordinator.
