Advanced Vision Options

Dr. Patty Haller and Dr. Laura Hamman provide treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and other procedures.

In addition to customized  lenses and frames or contacts, our office can work with you on the pre and post operative treatment of LASIK and other forms of refractive surgeries, as well as work with you on advanced techniques for reshaping your eye to improve your vision without the use of eyeglasses (see Corneal Reshaping below). We also provide exams to assist patients that have Low Vision needs and determine the best devices to continue to enhance the functional vision of those patients (see Low Vision below).

Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology)

Orthokeratology is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight.

When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results. Please contact our office if you would be interested in this procedure and whether you are a good candidate for this option.

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. Haller and Dr. Hamman  will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs, and schedule you with excellent surgeons for your procedure.  Then, we happily will take care of you during your post operative period.

Low Vision Therapy

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.

Dr. Haller and Dr. Hamman have the experience and equipment necessary to provide treatment, consultation and referrals for the vision correction procedures and the ability to determine the right fit for Low Vision aids as detailed above at our office in Chillicothe. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Haller or Dr. Hamman and we will be in touch with you shortly.
