Gardena Vision Correction Procedures

Today's life-changing procedures make it possible to improve your vision to 20/20—or better.

LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK—short for Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis— is the most common type of laser eye surgery, during which a surgeon will reshape your cornea with a laser.

LASIK corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract eye surgery is a very common and medically necessary procedure to remove and replace the eye’s natural lens when the vision has been clouded by a cataract. We offer laser-assisted cataract surgery and lifestyle lenses as options for our patients.

Other Procedures

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), is when a clear lens is implanted to replace your eye’s natural lens to correct your vision.

This procedure is often used for pre-cataract patients, as a preventative vision correction solution. RLE can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of refractive laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

This surgery removes the outer corneal layer so it is a good option for people with thin corneas who may not be candidates for LASIK.

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium eye surgery is performed under topical anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Dry Eye Treatments

Dry eye is an irritating, painful, and common condition in which the eye fails to properly produce quality tears. When left untreated, it may lead to ulcers and scars on the cornea.

Depending on the severity of your condition, there are a variety of treatments to relieve dry eyes.

Monovision LASIK

Monovision lasik can treat presbyopia. One eye would remain slightly nearsighted while correcting your other eye for distance vision. With both eyes open, you’ll experience clear and comfortable vision both near and far.

Facial Rejuvination

Facial rejuvination, also known as a face-lift, is a procedure to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck.

Fillers & Botox

Botox and dermal fillers are injectables that can relax or fill in fine lines and wrinkles.

Glaucoma Treatments

Glaucoma is a disease that occurs when pressure from fluid buildup damages the optic nerve. In this advanced glaucoma eye surgery, often called MIGS, fluid drainage is improved with a microscopic stent.
