Good Eyecare Begins With A Yearly Eye Exam!
Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye checkup. Even a basic eye exam can instantly detect many health-threatening conditions, such as tumors, vascular irregularities, and diabetes-related injury to the retina. At Lipski Eye Center, that basic checkup is brief and painless.
What is low vision? Low vision is reduced vision to 20/60 or worse acuity that is not correctable with glasses or contact lenses. Macular degeneration is the most common cause of low vision, along with glaucoma, optic nerve disease and Diabetic retinopathy.
“ It has truly been a pleasure to serve those with visual impairments for over 20 years. My goal is to maximize each person’s vision and to help them to be as independent as possible.” ~ Dr. Sherri

LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an popular option for vision correction, often eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.
Other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.
If you are interested in refractive surgery, please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery. If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon who is most appropriate for your case. In addition, we provide post-operative care for refractive surgery.
