Am I a good candidate for laser vision correction?
By having a consultation and eye examination at our office, our doctor will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for laser vision correction.
Patients who are at least 18 years of age, have healthy eyes that are free from retinal problems, corneal scars, and any eye diseases are generally suitable.
Many patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism are potential candidates.
We will also discuss your lifestyle needs to help you decide if LASIK is the best alternative for you.
How long does surgery take and when can I return to work?
How long does the surgery take?
The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes for both eyes, and about 5 to 7 minutes per eye.
After LASIK how soon can I return to work?
Most patients are back to work the day after surgery, depending on the work environment.
We do ask that you try to relax for a couple of days if possible.
Will I need reading glasses after my surgery?
Generally, patients under the age of 40 still read well without the use of glasses following the surgery.
Patients over the age of 40 may need reading glasses for small print. Presbyopia is a term that refers to the natural weakening of the muscles that occurs in our early to mid 40s, causing us to need reading glasses.
LASIK does not correct or prevent presbyopia.
Should you fall into this age category, we will be happy to discuss monovision with you at your consultation.
This is an option that allows many patients the convenience of near and distance vision without the use of reading glasses.
Our patients are always seen the day following the procedure and then again at one week, one month, three months, and six months following surgery.
On occasion, patients require being seen more often.
We offer our services twenty-
How soon can I drive after the surgery?
We will require that you have someone drive you home following your procedure.
However, you may drive when you feel comfortable enough to drive safely, possibly the next day.
Does Lasik hurt, what anesthesia are used and can do both eyes?
What type of anesthesia is used during the surgery?
Topical numbing eye drops are used during your procedure.
Sometimes an oral medication is offered to help you relax. We do not use any needles during your surgery.
Does LASIK hurt?
The treatment itself is painless.
We will place a few numbing drops in your eye(s) to make you more comfortable.
You will feel pressure on and around the eye during the procedure.
Some patients may experience a feeling of "something in the eye" for a day or two after treatment.
Will I be able to have both eyes treated at the same time?
Surgery can be performed on both eyes on the same day if your doctor feels you are a good candidate.
Should you wish to have one eye done at a time, the doctor will discuss this with you and we can accommodate this as well.
Glasses or contact lenses and payment options
Will I still need glasses or contact lenses?
The goal of refractive surgery is to reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
An occasional patient may need to wear a thin pair of prescription glasses for driving at night.
Do you offer payment options?
Our Refractive Surgery Coordinator will be happy to discuss financing information based on your personal needs.
