LASIK is a laser-based vision correction surgery in which the eye's cornea is reshaped to correct for eye conditions such as nearsightedness and astigmatism (it is not an appropriate treatment for presbyopia, a condition that causes a reduction in near vision as you age). When performed properly, this procedure is a wise investment and can reduce a person's dependence on corrective lenses such as glasses or contacts. It is important to note that many patients will still need these lenses in certain situations, such as in low-light conditions, while reading, or while driving.
In recent years, surgeons both nationwide and in and around Nashville have heavily promoted LASIK and other forms of laser vision correction. The reality is that, while LASIK may be the best option in certain cases, many patients would be better served by an alternative to laser vision correction.
At Choate Eye Associates serving Hendersonville, Gallatin, and all of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, we recommend laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK and PRK only when they truly are appropriate for the patient’s lifestyle and visual needs. We partner with the area's premier refractive surgeons in providing LASIK, PRK, and ICL treatment. Every patient enjoys the benefits of comprehensive pre- and post-surgical care from our doctors in the comfort and convenience of our luxurious, state-of-the-art office. Our patients also benefit from the peace of mind that comes with unbiased pre-operative counseling. Our services help patients make educated laser vision correction surgery decisions, and achieve optimal results should LASIK or another treatment be decided upon. At our Nashville area practice, we are here to serve you. To learn more, contact Choate Eye Associates today.
Contact lenses have set the standard for safety, comfort, and convenience in vision correction for many years. New advances in contact lens technology continue to improve the quality and functionality of lenses. Patients who choose contacts enjoy the flexibility of changing lens types over time while avoiding the risks and recovery time associated with surgery.
From multifocal lenses to specialized contacts designed for eye diseases like keratoconus, there have never been better options on the market for contact lens patients. In combination with one of the area’s most unique optical boutiques, our unsurpassed skill and experience in the care of contact lens patients make Choate Eye Associates the destination for corrective lenses in the Nashville area.
When the eye's natural lens is damaged or obscured by cataracts, an injury, or some other problem, an artificial lens implant can help the patient recover his or her vision. Patients at Choate Eye Associates enjoy access to the area's finest lens implant surgeons in the area as well as advanced ReZoom™, ReSTOR™, and Crystalens® implants. All pre- and post-surgical care takes place at Choate Eye Associates.
