of patient care. At the Eye Physicians Medical/Surgical Center
in San Diego, Dr. Jacobs and his surgical team strive to help you
improve your vision and reduce your dependency on corrective lenses
with laser eye surgery. In San Diego, Dr. Jacobs uses state-of-the-art
equipment and techniques for your refractive surgery to ensure your
comfort and safety.
To perform your refractive surgery, Dr. Jacobs uses a cool beam of
laser light to reshape the surface of your cornea, reducing or sometimes
eliminating your eye's refractive error. Your eyes are first anesthetized
with eye drops, making the procedure virtually painless and quick.
Dr. Jacobs will begin by gently folding back a thin protective flap
of corneal tissue and then using the laser for about 30 to 60 seconds
to reshape the corneal surface. Finally the protective corneal flap
is folded back into place where it bonds without the need for stitches.
You will have clearer, more natural vision within hours of your refractive
surgery and can throw away those frustrating contacts for good. Call
today to schedule your consultation appointment with Dr. Jacobs in
San Diego and discover the amazing benefits of refractive surgery.
