The eye doctors at Eye Care Centre have extensive experience in pre and post-operative care of LASIK. We provide comprehensive care and have a thorough understanding of different procedures to best correct your particular vision problems.
The first step is to request a thorough eye health exam. Make sure we are aware you are requesting a LASIK consultation and referral. At your appointment, our Optometrists will evaluate your eye health and the ocular surface of your eye to ensure you are an ideal candidate for corrective surgery.
After we determine that LASIK may be right for you, we will discuss the objectives and likely outcomes of the surgery. If you wish to proceed with the procedure, you will be given a referral to a local Ophthalmologist.
After surgery, Eye Care Centre will schedule ongoing visits with your Optometrist to follow up and evaluate the healing process and your vision. We can also assist with additional post-operative needs, such as sunglasses, reading glasses, dry eye treatment, and eye drops.
LASIK is a very common and safe vision-correcting procedure. While it is not for everyone, your Optometrist can help you determine if LASIK is right for you.
Individuals who have seasonal allergies, play sports, or have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time can all benefit from LASIK. Also, the treatment effect of laser vision correction is permanent in most cases, allowing you to enjoy near-perfect vision for the rest of your life.
The actual surgery takes less than 10 minutes per eye, although the laser can correct your vision in just 20 to 50 seconds depending on the amount of correction needed and your prescription. Plan on being at the clinic for one to two hours on the day of your surgery.
Schedule an appointment stating it is for a LASIK consultation and referral.
