Are You Considering Laser Corrective Surgery?

Understanding Laser Refractive Surgery

Laser refractive surgery involves using a finely-calibrated excimer laser beam to remove corneal tissue from around the eye. This has proven to be an extremely effective method for treating vision issues such as astigmatism, as well as far- and nearsightedness.

Learn More About Laser Refractive Surgery

Given the rise in popularity of laser refractive surgery treatments in recent years, there is an abundance of information out there for you to refer to in making your decision. You can find answers to all questions regarding laser refractive surgery, such as:

  • Who qualifies for it?
  • What are the risks associated with it?
  • What are the different forms of laser refractive surgery?
  • How long is the recovery period?
  • Will my health or vision insurance pay for it?
  • What should I look for in a laser refractive surgeon?

Any of these resources can be a valuable source of information if you’re seriously considering laser refractive surgery. At the same time, you’ll also want to know how your own visual history could promote your candidacy for laser refractive surgery, or possibly preclude you from even considering it as a viable treatment option.

This can all be determined in a quick appointment with one of our Optometrists. He or she will examine your history, listen to your vision correction goals, and help you to plan accordingly.

Important Information About Laser Refractive Surgery:

Planning your laser refractive surgery

The key to successful laser refractive surgery is receiving it through a quality Ophthalmologist. Fortunately for you, we work in conjunction with several of the area’s top laser refractive surgery providers. Given your experience in working with us, you can rest assured that if an Ophthalmologist carries our endorsement, he or she will take excellent care of you. We will also remain closely involved with your procedure, handling all of your pre and post-operative care.

Your road to laser refractive surgery starts with a comprehensive eye exam to determine the current health of your eyes. This allows us to know whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure, or if other forms of vision correction may deliver you better results. This is the time to ask any questions that you still may have regarding laser refractive surgery and what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure.

Once your candidacy has been established, we’ll work with you to select the ideal Ophthalmologist to handle your surgery. You’ll schedule an initial consultation with him or her to get some final details related to the procedure, and to schedule the date of your surgery. Once you’ve undergone treatment, we’re here to ensure that your recovery goes smoothly in order for you to experience optimal results.
