Vision Correction

Understand Your Options:

If you’re tired of wearing glasses but not sure which procedure is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Nancy Balin. Dr. Balin will perform a thorough examination of your eyes and determine the best options for you to correct your vision. Our eye examinations will make sure you are properly diagnosed and treated. The Balin Eye & Laser Center offers the latest and most advanced procedures to improve vision including Laser Vision Correction, the KAMRA Inlay, No Stitch Cataract Surgery, and the Verisyse Lens Implant.

For those patients who wear glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, Dr. Balin performs laser vision correction using Advanced Laser Technology. A leader in the field, Dr. Balin was the first ophthalmologist in western Massachusetts to perform the surgery. To date, she has performed over 7000 procedures. Our laser vision correction procedures include iLASIK (Customized, Blade Free Intralase technology), CustomVue, LASIK, and PRK.

The KAMRA Inlay is our newest technology and is available to treat reading vision. It is a great option for patients who no longer want to rely on their reading glasses. Patients who have a KAMRA Inlay are now able to see a text, work on a computer and read a newspaper without reading glasses. To find out more about this exciting new technology, contact our office at 413-584-6666.

Dr. Balin performs No-Stitch Cataract Surgery offering the latest lens technology in monofocal, multifocal and accommodating lens options to patients throughout the Springfield, Northampton and Ware MA areas.  Patients who select a multifocal or accommodating lens are able to see distance and read without needing glasses in most cases.

A Verisyse lens is a great option for those patients who are too nearsighted to qualify for LASIK or whose corneas are too thin for LASIK. The lens is positioned in the front of the natural lens in the eye and does not interfere with the patient’s near vision.
