Many people think that refractive surgery is the magic "Fix" for all blurry vision problems that they experience. This is simply not the case.
Refractive surgery has helped many people to see better without looking through glasses or contact lenses. Unfortunately, others have found that their vision after surgery in not able to be corrected to as high a level of clarity as they experienced before their refractive surgery.
Seeing clearly again is now not a simple matter of getting a new pair of glasses or contact lenses for the front of the eye now has an unusual and irregular shape. This creates optical distortions that cause create glare, halos, and multiple images. This irregular shape also prevents conventional soft and gas permeable contact lenses from conforming to the eye properly making it more difficult to achieve a good physical fit of the contact lenses.
Correcting this situation requires specially designed rigid contact lenses to restore the eye with a new optically correct shape on the front surface and an usually shaped surface on the back to conform to the post-surgical eye.
Dr. Wheatall has thirty year of experience working with rigid gas permeable lenses, also known as RGP lenses, a state of the art Medmont E300 Topographer and OrthoTool Software to help him design custom RGP lenses.
Dr. Wheatall looks forward to helping restore your vision to meet your visual needs.
