There is no “one-size-fits-all” vision solution when it comes to LASIK in St. Louis.
Right now, this very minute, there are about 7.5 billion of us human beings on Earth. That means there are about 15 billion eyes. An even more incredible fact is that not a single pair is exactly alike.
From a technical standpoint, our eyes are even more uniquely individual than our fingerprints, which is why iris scanners are now being used in some of the world’s most high-security facilities.
But from a human standpoint, wow. How amazing is it that you have two windows to your world so rare that yours are, literally, the only ones like them in the universe?
That awe-inspiring thought is one of the reasons I am passionate about ophthalmology. Each time I look inside a patient’s eyes, I see a beautiful microcosm of shapes, structures, and colors that I’ve never seen before. Sure, we’ve all got the same basic eye anatomy, but the artwork inside is astounding to me — every single time.
It’s that same appreciation that has driven me to learn and embrace new refractive technology.
Just as each eye is unique, so are the treatment options. For our St. Louis LASIK practice, there is no one-size-fits-all procedure. The best LASIK surgeons understand this and provide LASIK plus a variety of laser eye surgery alternatives.
