What to Know About LASIK Surgery
LASIK surgery can help many longtime wearers of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Since the surgery aims to provide the clearest vision possible and treats conditions such as myopia and astigmatism, it’s certainly an attractive option. Our specialists at The Eye Doctors can evaluate your suitability for LASIK and further educate you on what the surgery is like.
Specialists at The Eye Doctors perform LASIK evaluations and referrals. Our doctor reviews your medical history with a focus on your vision and overall eye health. You will also undergo an eye exam to help determine if you make a good candidate for LASIK. If you do seem like a good candidate, you will receive the opportunity to discuss several surgical options, and The Eye Doctors will contact our partner LASIK surgery center to make further plans.
After the Surgery
Follow-up care is essential to the success of LASIK surgery. Here’s what the timetable looks like:
- The day after surgery: Appointment at The Eye Doctors for post-surgical care and monitoring
- The next six months: Follow-up appointments at regular intervals
- One year after surgery: Full examination is performed to evaluate the long-term success of the procedure
You’ll most likely use antibiotic eye drops and steroid drops to promote healing after surgery. You may also experience dry eyes, light sensitivity and halos at night for a few months post-surgery.
Ask Others About Their Experiences
Many people who have undergone LASIK wonder why they did not do it sooner. It’s always a good idea to discuss LASIK with those who have had the surgery.
