Focus On Your Life Again
Laser eye surgery can take away the hassle of wearing glasses or contact lenses to see clearly, making it easier for you to do the things you love. Many people choose these elective surgeries because of their safety and high long-term success rates for correcting vision problems.
If you’re interested in laser eye surgery, you’ll need to consult with an eye doctor first. 20/20 Vision Center offers thorough laser eye surgery consultations to help you make confident and well-informed choices before proceeding.
What Is a Laser Eye Surgery Consultation?
The consultation process helps us determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery and what kind might serve your needs best. During the consultation, we typically collect information about:
- How thick your cornea is.
- Whether your prescription is still changing.
- What type of vision problem you have and how much correction it requires.
- Whether your medical history or family medical history presents any significant risks.
If laser eye surgery looks like an appropriate option, we can discuss the possible outcomes and let you choose whether or not to proceed. If you wish to move forward, we can refer you to an experienced ophthalmologist to perform the surgery.
Once your surgery is complete, you’ll need to visit us for a few follow-up appointments so we can monitor your recovery. These appointments lower your risk of post-operative complications and promote stronger, more comfortable vision for life.
Common Laser Eye Surgery Options
Over 98% of patients who get LASIK to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism are satisfied with their results. You’ll need to wait about 24 hours for clear vision to return after the surgery, although full recovery generally takes several weeks.
If your cornea is thin, it might not be able to heal properly after LASIK. Don’t worry, though; you might be a strong candidate for PRK instead! This procedure uses a laser to remove the eye’s outer surface entirely before reshaping the tissue below. The surface of the eye grows back over time.
