Vision Correction Options for all ages

Good eye health starts early. It's important to monitor and track vision changes during this stage of life by having regular eye exams. Laser vision correction is not recommended until eye prescriptions have stabilized, generally between ages 18-21.

Trouble seeing near and/or far objects? Glasses and contact lenses can temporarily correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Sports, outdoor adventures, traveling and just wanting to feel confident without the hassles of glasses and contacts are motivators to having laser vision correction during this stage of life.

During this stage of life, we are busy with work, sports and taking care of our growing family. Knowing we don't have to live with glasses and contacts is very appealing! On top of everything else going on, in our 40s, another vision change occurs - dependency on reading glasses.

Trouble seeing near and/or far objects or reading fine print? At this stage of life, vision correction can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and the need for reading glasses.

As we continue to mature, we notice changes in the quality of our vision due to the natural hardening and yellowing of the lens in our eye, also known as cataracts. Cataracts are a natural aging phenomenon that will affect everyone, even those who had LASIK earlier in life. We specialize in laser cataract surgery and advanced lens implants designed to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses at all distances after surgery.

Trouble seeing clearly? At this stage of life, laser cataract surgery can correct cataracts.

I have been in the eye care field for years and since Dr. Williamson has performed my cataract surgery and it is so wonderful to be able to read my charts without glasses!"

Ann Ford

It's been very nice not relying on glasses daily; having to wake up and immediately search for my specs was always a hassle. Since the custom enhancement, I now see better than I did with glasses, especially at night. I would have recommended it before, and now with the intralase system, it seems to be even better.

Dr. James Hoover
Eye Doctor

Lasik has made my life a lot easier. Being a mom and working full time, I am usually on the go. I love being able to lay with my son to watch movies and not worry about bending or breaking my glasses. I am completely satisfied with my surgery and the staff at the Williamson Eye Center.
