LASIK Candidacy and Post-LASIK Management
Is laser eye surgery right for you?
LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that reshapes the cornea in order to treat refractive issues, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses. During the procedure, an excimer laser gently reshapes the cornea with computer-controlled precision to correct issues like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
There are many factors that determine whether a form of laser eye surgery is right for you. In addition to wanting to improve your vision and lead your life less dependent on glasses, you must meet additional criteria to be deemed a candidate. Patients should be at least 18 years old, in good health, and aware of the risks and potential side effects of the procedure.
Our doctors will be able to give you more information and determine your eligibility when you come in for a free, no-obligation consultation.
Several factors include but are not limited to: age; overall physical health; and eye health and problems, such as refractive errors.
The objective of pre-operative consultations is to confirm candidacy, which is determined using safe, painless diagnostic technology and testing. During your procedure, our team will also discuss the cost of your procedure.
Follow-up care is as important as the procedure itself. Post-LASIK care ensures proper healing and comfort.
After LASIK Follow-Up Care Timeline:
- The first week: Your doctor will prescribe eye drops to reduce the risk of infection and inflammation, and to prevent dryness.
- The first few months: Your doctor will monitor the healing process and make sure that your eyes are comfortable and seeing well.
