Colorado Lasik Surgery

Lots of people are looking for a Colorado LASIK surgeon, because the areas of Denver and Colorado Springs give lasik surgery patients a number of benefits.

When you think of Colorado, you think of the Rocky Mountains. Well, several experts are of the opinion that high elevation LASIK is actually more beneficial to your eyes.

Other experts, however, believe that high altitudes can cause corneal edema or swelling, which becomes a problem for people using extended wear contact lenses. And in the story of Dr. Beck Weathers who had vision problems when climbing up Mt. Everest, people assumed that his eye problems were attributable to the high altitude.

However, Dr. Weathers had his vision corrected via Radial Ketatometry surgery. It was not via LASIK eye surgery.

How confident are people with this procedure? Dr. Cutarelli has performed over 40,000 lasik procedures. And he's based in Glendale, Colorado. Imagine the thousands of people who have overcome farsightedness, astigmatism, and nearsightedness or myopia. What does that tell you about high elevation LASIK, right?

Please note, though, that this is not for everyone. There are certain criteria that you must have. For example, if you are suffering from dry eye syndrome, LASIK will worsen it.

If you do not qualify for LASIK eye surgery, you can still go for other options: LASEK, EpiLASIK, Phakic intraocular lens implants, Intacs and CK.

Anyway, please ask about several LASIK surgeons. Don't just go with the first doctor you. Consult with an ophthalmologist who will help you assess if you are an ideal candidate for LASIK eye surgery, and who can even recommend a good surgeon near your area.
