What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK is a type of refractive surgery that can correct several vision problems, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The surgery involves using a laser to reshape the eye's transparent outer layer, the cornea. This laser helps correct how light enters the eye and focuses on the retina, resulting in clearer vision.
LASIK surgery is a safe and effective procedure that has helped millions of people improve their vision. However, it’s important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for surgery. After your consultation, our optometrists will determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK.
What to Expect during Your LASIK Consultation
Our optometrists will review your medical history and current eye health during your LASIK consultation. We will also perform several tests to evaluate your visual system and eye health. These tests may include the following:
- Vision test to determine your level of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
- Eye health evaluation to check for any underlying eye conditions that could impact the success of your surgery.
- Refraction test to assess your prescription for glasses or contact lenses
- Topography test to measure the surface of your cornea
After we have gathered the necessary information, our optometrist will sit down with you to discuss the results of your evaluation and answer any questions you may have about the surgery. We will also provide information on what to expect before, during, and after your surgery.
Do I Need an Eye Exam Beforehand?
