About 150 million Americans wear eyeglasses and spend a total of $15 billion
on eyewear each year. If you’re tired of replacing your contact
lenses or losing your glasses, it might be time to consider LASIK eye
surgery. About 700,000 Americans have the procedure each year in order
to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure
only takes a few minutes and corrects vision nearly immediately.
Ophthalmologist Mark Hornfeld of New York City offers the latest technologies for LASIK surgery, including
wavefront-guided LASIK. Wavefront uses three-dimensional imaging to produce
a more accurate measurement of the eye and corrects vision more precisely.
Eye surgery can also benefit those with cataracts; ask ophthalmologist
Dr. Mark Hornfeld about intraocular lens implants to get rid of blurriness.

impairments, please pass along this infographic from Dr. Mark Hornfeld.
