Vision Correction

Eyecare Plus Scottsdale provides 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 recommended by Eyecare Plus. 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 Kessler or Dr. Carlson will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs. We have the experience to let you know if you are a good candidate for refractive surgery. About 20% of patients are not good candidates for various reasons.

Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)

Orthokeratology is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight.

When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results. At this time, our doctors are not performing this procedure.

Low Vision Therapy

Low vision is a general term that refers to a partial loss of vision that cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery. Common causes of low vision include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, inherited retinal degenerative diseases, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy.

Low vision therapy typically includes an evaluation of the patient’s visual abilities, prescription of low vision devices and training in their use. The goal is to maximize the use of the patient’s available vision for reading, writing, hobbies and work-related tasks such as working at a computer.

Dr. Kessler and Dr. Dasen can help patients by recommending the best low vision specialist for their needs.

If you want a referral for any of the vision correction procedures or surgeries detailed above, request an appointment with one of our Doctors and we will be in touch with you shortly.

Dear Patients,
There will be heavy construction immediately adjacent to our office for the next few months. The developers are consciously attempting to minimize the impact this has on our office; however, there will be road closures.
Currently, the easiest access to our office will be from the SOUTH. We recommend taking Indian School and turning north on 75th street. Our office is about a 1/2 mile up on your right. The spaces out in front of the office are first-come first-served or First Fidelity Bank has graciously allowed our patients to use the three spots in the back of their lot, closest to our office. If coming from Camelback road, please use North Civic Center Plaza to reach the parking lot of First Fidelity. Please see the map for walking directions from there.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this big change.
-Staff at Eyecare Plus Scottsdale
