Vision Correction

Filips Vision Source provides treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.

Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Filips Vision Source. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.

LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.

While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Dr. Filips will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.

Vision Therapy

Usually one or two children in every classroom struggle with reading. They are slow, have poor comprehension, do not read smoothly, lose their place while reading or use a finger to keep their place beyond 2nd grade. We have improved the grades and self-esteem of one hundreds of children with this problem. See the video on the “about us” tab of this web site and call our office for an appointment.

Low Vision

Low vision is a general term that refers to a partial loss of vision that cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery. Common causes of low vision include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, inherited retinal degenerative diseases, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy.

Low vision therapy typically includes an evaluation of the patient’s visual abilities, prescription of low vision devices and training in their use. The goal is to maximize the use of the patient’s available vision for reading, writing, hobbies and work-related tasks such as working at a computer.
