Non-Surgical Vision Correction While You Sleep

VRSS

VRSS, Visual Correction, Performance Eyecare Alton IL, Illinois Eye Doctor

Few things are as precious as our eyesight. When our sight is less than perfect, it reduces our quality of life by making everything more difficult. If you don’t want to wear glasses because they’re bulky on your face or you just dislike the look, and you don’t want to deal with contacts or can’t wear them, and you’re uncomfortable with the idea of having surgery on your eyes, another option to help your vision does exist.

There’s now a new technology, started in 2010, called the Vision Retainer Shaping System. This procedure provides non-surgical vision correction while you sleep. It works similar to a dental retainer, but it’s for your eyes.

The special lenses involved are only worn at night while you sleep. They gradually reshape the cornea to reduce (or even eliminate) myopia or astigmatism. The lenses are comfortable to wear and easy to care for. You’ll feel no pain, and you can wear lenses in both eyes at the same time. Take them out in the morning, and you’ll have clearer vision all day long.

The treatment is most effective on mild to moderate cases. More severe cases may still require additional vision correction. If you’re not happy with the results for any reason, this process is also completely reversible. Simply stop wearing the lenses at night, and your vision will gradually return to its original state.

Because this system doesn’t work on every cornea shape, only specially trained optometrists can evaluate your suitability for this treatment and perform the procedure. The optometrists at the Vision Centers of Performance Eyecare in St. Louis & Illinois have received the special training necessary and have the proper diagnostic equipment and expertise to perform VRSS.

Contact us today for a free consultation. We’ll review your prescription and let you know if the Vision Retainer Shaping System is right for you!

The VRSS consists of a procedure where near-sighted patients are fitted with a retainer which is worn at night to gently and incrementally reshape the cornea to eliminate or reduce nearsightedness or astigmatism. With consistent, nightly use, proper fitting and care patients will not require the use of contact lenses nor eyeglasses during waking hours.

LASIK Eye Surgery: Safe and Effective

If you’re an eyeglass or contact lens wearer, you may have experienced a desire at one time or another to permanently discard your glasses or contact lens. However, despite that desire, fear is one of the primary reasons why many eyeglass and contact lens wearers have not elected to use LASIK eye surgery to correct their vision.

LASIK Eye Surgery, What Is Lasik Eye Surgery, Lasik Eye

Fortunately, in 2014, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a study and affirmed that LASIK eye surgery is not only safe but effective.

Specifically, the FDA LASIK Quality of Life Collaboration Project (Project) revealed that over 95% of survey respondents achieved 20/20 or better binocular vision. The Project’s study also indicated that the prevalence of symptoms such as ghosting, glare, halos, and starburst did not increase postoperatively after LASIK. In fact, according to Lance Kugler, MD, President of the Refractive Surgery Alliance, “Patients with ghosting actually decreased from 33% before surgery to 6% after surgery.”

LASIK eye surgery is an easy and simple procedure which has helped millions achieve improved vision without the aid of glasses or contact lenses. So let’s walk through the basics of LASIK eye surgery to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of this procedure.

What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is a laser-assisted procedure which reshapes the cornea or the clear dome in the front of the eye to improve how the eye focuses on light rays and corrects vision.

Prime candidates for LASIK eye surgery

LASIK eye surgery is safe and there are a few criterion if met that may facilitate the process and identify prime LASIK candidates. For instance, good LASIK eye surgery candidates should generally possess the following attributes:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Healthy eyes are preferable
  • Good general health
  • No history of dry eyes

The Surgical Procedure

LASIK eye surgery is an outpatient, surgical procedure where an eye drop of anesthetic numbs the eye surface. The surgery requires 10 to 15 minutes for each eye and both cornea are often reshaped during the same procedure. Healing usually occurs within a few days with minimal recovery time.

Performance Eye Care Commitment

Performance Eye Care, through a partnership with TLC LASIK Eye Center provides premium LASIK eye surgical services. Dr. Stephen Wexler and Dr. Massies of the TLC LASIK Eye Center possess a commitment to ensure superior, post operative care and follow-up exams. TLC LASIK Eye Center also provides a Lifetime Commitment to Clear Vision which ensures satisfied customers by offering lifetime enhancements to clear their newfound LASIK vision upon request at no additional charge.

Visual Freedom Starts Here

Non-Surgical Vision Correction

Available in Creve Coeur, MO & St. Louis, MO

Performance Eyecare Creve Coeur, Performance Eyecare St. Louis, Lasik Eye Surgery, Non Surgical Eye Procedure in Missouri, Dr. Massie, Non-Surgical Vision Correction

Lasik Eye Surgery is available at our eye care customers under the care & professionalism of Dr. Stephan Wexler. However, if you are worried about whether you are the perfect candidate for this vision correction surgery you may want to consider our alternate, non-surgical visual correction surgery which is also known as the vision retainer shaping system. This is the process of utilizing retainer contact lens that corrects your overall vision while you are asleep!

You may be asking yourself, “what is the difference between lasik eye surgery, and non-surgical vision correction?” And the answer is this:

  1. Vision Retainer Shaping System is less than half the cost of a laser vision eye surgery.
  2. Good news! The non-surgical method involves zero post pain.
  3. You will not experience any hazy or blurred vision once complete.
  4. Both of your eyes can be corrected in the same visit!
  5. No use, or need for steroid or other drugs as there are with laser surgery patients.
  6. We saved the best for last! This retainer contact lens is reversible, whereas surgical correction is not!

Dr. Massie can help you determine if you are a candidate. We also offer a free consultation! All you need to do to get started is contact our Performance Eyecare Creve Coeur, or St. Louis office. It is important to keep in mind that VRSS is not suitable for everyone, and needs to be performed by a qualified & licensed eye care expert, like Dr. Massie. This non-surgical vision repair is safe for all ages, including children and older adults. To see a list of the eye health insurance plans we accept, please visit our website or call our nearby office today! The road to visual freedom is only an appointment away!
