Vision Correction

Family Vision Health Center provides evaluation, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.

Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Family Vision Health Center. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.

LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.

While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone.  Dr. Fannin will first thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.  If he determines you are a good candidate for LASIK, he will refer you to a top-notch surgeon for consultation.  After your procedure, Dr. Fannin will provide continued care and post-surgical follow-ups.

Cataracts

Cataracts develop as part of the natural aging process within the eye.  Currently, there are no medications, eye drops or exercises that can prevent a cataract from forming.  Cataract surgery is the only way to remove a cataract that is causing visual problems.  When cataracts become visually significant and begin to interfere with your normal daily tasks, cataract surgery may be considered.

Cataracts start forming decades before they cause problems with your vision.   Dr. Fannin monitors cataract development as part of your annual comprehensive eye examination.  He will advise you when cataracts advance to the stage that is appropriate for surgical removal, and will discuss referral options with you.

After your cataract surgery, Dr. Fannin can provide your post-surgical follow-up care.

Family Vision Health Center has the experience and equipment necessary to provide treatment, consultation and referrals for the vision correction procedures and surgeries detailed above at our office in Grayson.    Request an appointment with Dr. Fannin, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
