LASIK (Laser-Associated In-Situ Keratomileusis) is the most common vision correction procedure and uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. We provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery.
At the Center for Eye Care and Optical, we provide comprehensive care to meet the visual needs of our patients. Our Optometrists will provide a thorough screening to determine if you're a good candidate for LASIK as well as post-operative care right here in our office.
Evaluation and Referral
Our optometrists perform a complete review of your medical history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once your evaluation is complete and we have determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be referred to one of the most experienced refractive surgeons in the United States, at one of the top LASIK facilities on the Island.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will arrange follow-up appointments in our office. Typically, you will begin these appointments the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the next six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our team is experienced in working with patients post-operation. Call to schedule your LASIK evaluation today.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
