Orlando, FL— Drs. Joel Hunter and Jason Brinton are Central Florida refractive eye surgeons practicing at Hunter Vision — a refractive eye surgery practice dedicated to treating patients with some of the most advanced technologies and techniques the field has to offer.
According to Dr. Brinton, a refractive lens specialist, there are many reasons a patient may not be a great candidate for LASIK surgery. Fortunately, for those patients there are other wonderful procedures available to correct vision. Dr. Brinton says, “Often patients will come to our office with the idea that LASIK can fix all of their vision issues. While LASIK is an amazing procedure with incredible outcomes, it has limitations when the vision issue is caused by an aging lens inside the eye.” For those patients who are usually over the age of 40, refractive lens exchange or cataract surgery can be a great option to correct and restore both near and distance vision.
