New Frontiers in Laser Vision Correction.

LASIK

Technologically advanced LASIK and Refractive Surgery Right Here in the Capital Region

So much of our lives revolve around what we can see. Eyes are remarkable, and there are too many things to experience to let glasses and contacts get in your way. Here at Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region (OCCR), we aspire to provide the most premium refractive surgery experience and best outcomes in the Capital Region. Our goal, to the greatest extent possible, is to help patients achieve visual freedom; clear vision free from glasses and contact lenses.

We help our patients accomplish this through Custom WaveFront™ LASIK (Laser In Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy). For patients with high prescriptions and for those who have previously been told they are not candidates for LASIK, we offer safe and equivalently effective alternative refractive options designed for these purposes including RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange) and ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) implantation.

OCCR is the only practice in the Capital Region to offer ICL! Our refractive surgeon, Dr. Jorawer Singh, completed his refractive surgery fellowship at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, where he learned this high-end procedure from the most experienced and highest volume ICL surgeons in the Northeast.

Freedom from glasses and contacts makes every moment in life easier to navigate, and we seek to enrich our patients’ lives by helping them see clearly the things they care about the most.

We are committed to providing the latest, most technologically advanced refractive surgery for our patients. Refractive Surgery is a primary area of expertise at OCCR; and we do it well.  Call us at 518-438-5273  or fill-out the form to request a Complimentary Refractive Evaluation and Ocular Analysis with Dr. Singh. Our goal is to help you achieve your personal best visual freedom from contacts and glasses.

Why Consider LASIK?

While wearing contacts or glasses frequently becomes part of the daily routine for those with less-than-perfect vision, wearers often resign themselves to “this is the way it is.” There is no denying that prescription eyewear and contact lenses can often get in the way, though…

  • Glasses fog up in humidity or when taking a hot dish out of the oven
  • A pair of prescription sunglasses are needed on bright, sunny days
  • Glasses have the potential to break during work or athletic activities and make things like watersports a challenge
  • Contact lenses must be thoroughly cleaned daily to avoid the risk of infection
  • Contacts can begin to irritate when a speck of dirt or makeup makes its way onto the lens
  • Contacts should be taken out every evening, meaning most people who wear contacts also regularly need glasses

How would your life change if you could live unhindered or less dependent on glasses or contacts?

Don’t let contacts or glasses get in your way!

LASIK & LASIK Alternative Procedures

We are fortunate to live in a time wherein LASIK is not the only option for attaining your personal best visual freedom. Visian ICL, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), and Advanced PRK are better options for many people, yet it may be difficult to find a LASIK surgeon who has invested in the training and technology needed to skillfully provide these alternatives.

Dr. Singh, our cornea specialist, is leading the OCCR Refractive Surgery Program specializing in Advanced CustomVue™ LASIK and all of its modern surgical alternatives.

Call us today to find out which procedure might be right for you. We will be happy to set up a Complimentary Refractive Evaluation to evaluate if you qualify to begin the journey of achieving clear vision with less dependency on glasses or contacts.
