How to Improve Your Eyesight

Open angle glaucoma occurs when the Lutenol Review drainage angles in the eye become less efficient; pressure builds gradually and sometimes without symptoms. In this kind of glaucoma, damage to the optic nerve can occur so slowly that the patient is unaware her sight is becoming impaired. This issue is the reason senior citizens are cautioned to have annual eye exams with a qualified ophthalmologist who will check the eye pressure and perform additional tests if intraocular pressure exceeds normal limits 20-22mmHg.

Price is a widely concerned factor among LASIK candidates. This is because LASIK procedure can cost several thousands per eye, which amount of expense is no ease for many ordinary folks. On the other hand, many people are attracted by the huge benefits offered by this surgery. Permanent freedom from corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses is the most outstanding one.

In fact, LASIK surgery as a whole entity contains several aspects, including the amount of needed correction as well as surrounding variables like pre and post surgical care. All these factors contribute to the high price of LASIK procedure. A patient may be charged for $1,700 to $3,000 per one eye. This high price has actually become a major concern for anyone who is considering this surgery. What's more disappointing, costs of LASIK procedure are always excluded from health insurance plans as well as Medicare. Due to the current downturn of US economy, the number of companies unwilling to cover LASIK costs is still increasing.

Patients may wonder why there is such a huge gap of price between different sources offering LASIK surgery. There are usually lots of commercials prevailing on TV. Some of them even claim that they only charge $1,000 per eye. With a simple comparison with other ones charging several thousands, patients may be surprised by these attractive ads. On the other hand, people with proper awareness should do enough homework before receiving such an advertised LASIK.
