Achieve Clear Vision Without Glasses or Contact Lenses
Get the answers you need during a laser eye surgery consultation at our clinic. Although there are many types of corrective eye surgery available, we offer consultations and referrals for LASIK and refractive lens exchange.
What Is LASIK?
- Damage or complications to the flap created during surgery
- Dry eyes
- Changes to vision, including double vision or halos
- Under or overcorrection of refractive error
What Is Refractive Lens Exchange?
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) involves replacing the eye’s natural lens with a prescription artificial lens. While RLE is traditionally performed during cataract surgery, it’s becoming more popular to correct refractive errors in patients even without cataracts.
Risks associated with the surgery are rare but include:
Pre and Postoperative Care
Corrective surgeries aren’t performed at our clinic, but we will refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist who does the procedure. But, first and foremost, you are our patient, and we will be with you throughout the process.
During the consultation, we perform a thorough eye examination to test if you are an appropriate candidate for the surgery. This exam includes:
- Review of your health and vision stability
- Eye dominance testing
- Evaluation of your corneal and ocular health
- Visual acuity testing
We’ll also counsel you on the corrective surgery options and discuss the various pros and cons of each to help you choose which one will be best.
Your health and happiness are our priority, so we want to ensure the benefits of your chosen corrective surgery outweigh the risks. Some factors that may affect your candidacy for surgery include:
- Unstable vision or eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions during the past 2 years
- History of corneal disease
- Current ocular diseases or conditions that increase risks of surgery
- Significant dry eyes
- Pregnancy or nursing
All findings discovered during your consultation will be forwarded to your surgeon. You’ll then be scheduled for a pre-surgery consultation with them.
We manage all your postoperative care at our clinic, including follow-up examinations. You’ll need regular monitoring to ensure your eyes are healing properly and your vision remains clear and comfortable. In some cases, you may still require eyewear after the procedure.
Which Surgery Should You Choose?
The best way to determine which surgery is best for you is to undergo a thorough laser eye surgery consultation and eye exam with one of our optometrists.
We aim to ensure you’re fully aware of the process and risks involved. We are happy to discuss your options and answer any questions or concerns you may have, so please book your consultation today!
