LASIK St. Louis | LASIK Alternatives
High prescriptions are not uncommon. In fact, at Brinton Vision, it is not unusual to see patients whose prescriptions are in the -14 to -16 range or greater. Seeing their faces light up when they open their eyes for the first time and see the world with crisp, clear, natural vision is one of our greatest rewards.
When people with very poor vision come to Brinton Vision, they’ve often given up hope that they will ever be able to see well without glasses or contacts. That’s because they are not usually candidates for LASIK. Here, though, they not only find hope; they find the joy that comes with being able to see the world the way they always dreamed.
At Brinton Vision, we do things a little differently. We are one of only a handful of LASIK providers in the country to offer LASIK plus all six modern LASIK alternatives. These proven treatments provide clear, natural vision to people with high prescriptions, steep astigmatism, thick or thin corneas, or who have age-related vision loss that LASIK does not address. Brinton Vision can even provide solutions for many people who have had earlier versions of LASIK in the past.
Implantable collamer lenses, often referred to as implantable contact lenses or Visian ICLs, are often the best treatment for high prescriptions. This safe, proven, and quick procedure has helped millions of people worldwide, even with the poorest of vision.
The bottom line is that, even if you have been told that you are not a candidate for LASIK by another provider, Brinton Vision may have a solution for you.
