With our extensive knowledge in the realm of eyecare, Art of Optiks will provide you with an engaging and educational experience to meet all of your LASIK needs.

What is LASIK?

Laser in-situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is a permanent vision repair operation available to adults over the age of 18. During this process, your LASIK surgeon will reshape your cornea to increase the effectiveness of light concentration on the retina in the back of your eye. You have the opportunity to declare interest in LASIK surgery during your comprehensive eye exam. After that, one of our doctors will do a LASIK consultation to determine your eligibility for the treatment. The following refractive problems are commonly treated by LASIK in vision correction:

 

  • Nearsightedness or Myopia: Objects that are close to you appear clear, but objects farther away are blurry.
  • Farsightedness or Hyperopia: Objects that are farther away from you appear clear, but objects closer are blurry.
  • Astigmatism: Due to the irregular shape of your eye, most objects are blurry, meaning you struggle to see clearly in almost all situations.

 

Your LASIK surgeon will numb your eyes and use a laser to create a small flap in your cornea. The procedure is painless and can be completed in as little as 20 minutes. The tissue behind the flap will be reshaped with a second laser before the flap is reinstalled. You may experience dry eyes after surgery; to keep your eyes moist and avoid infection and inflammation, you will be prescribed eye drops. Most patients notice improved vision within a few days of starting the relatively short recovery process.

Patient Background + History

Once our experts have reviewed your medical history, your background as a patient, and many other factors, they will determine if you are a good fit. Your medical history has a major impact on your eligibility for LASIK surgery as well as your overall health. For our specialists to be aware of any underlying conditions that need to be noticed and taken into consideration, accurate information from interested patients is necessary. These essential standards include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Family History or Current of Systemic or Eye Pathology
  • Allergies to Any Medications
  • Environmental Conditions Impacting Your Vision or Ocular Health

 

To ensure our specialists accurately assess your candidacy for LASIK surgery, they thoroughly review your medical background and history. Providing precise information during this phase of your consultation is crucial, and we encourage you to express any personal hesitations or concerns. Your well-being and satisfaction are our top priorities, and addressing any uncertainties ensures a thorough and informed decision-making process.

Analysis of the Overall Health of Your Eyes

During your LASIK appointment, our doctors will conduct a series of comprehensive tests to further evaluate your candidacy. While some tests may be familiar from previous eye exams, others may be new to you. Throughout the visit, our doctors will be present to ensure your comfort, explain the purpose of each test, address any concerns you may have, and meticulously review your results with you. Your understanding and confidence in the process are paramount, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Ability to Focus

If you’re accustomed to wearing contacts or glasses, chances are you’ve undergone some of the tests our specialists will conduct. Our physicians will meticulously examine factors influencing your vision quality and your eyes’ focusing ability. Utilizing a range of manual refraction tests, including the familiar “Pick One or Two” method, our specialists will evaluate your vision from various angles. Moreover, digital analyzers will be employed to validate the outcomes of manual refraction and gauge light scattering and vision quality as light enters your eyes. These comprehensive assessments aid our doctors in determining the most effective approach to improving your eyesight.

Dilated Eye Exam

Our doctors will use a solution to enlarge your pupils so they can see the lens and retinas in the rear of your eyes. The refraction measurements will be taken after your pupils have fully dilated. This enables our experts to confirm the first refraction’s findings and acquire more accurate measurements.

Front of Your Eyes

Our medical team utilizes advanced high-resolution scans to examine your eye tissue at the micron level. You’ll be guided to gaze into a series of cutting-edge digital scanners that capture detailed images of your eye surface and lens. These scans play a crucial role in evaluating various aspects, including your cornea’s condition, tear film health, eyelid wellness, and potential early signs of cataract development. Furthermore, these high-resolution scans offer detailed insights into the curvature, shape, and thickness of your cornea, aiding our doctors in comprehensive assessment and precise treatment planning.

Inside + Surface of Your Eyes

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we’ll capture intricate images of your retinas or inner eye structure. The retina’s vital function in processing light and transmitting signals to your brain for vision underscores the importance of these images. Our medical experts meticulously analyze them to assess the condition and functionality of your retina. Additionally, we’ll evaluate the composition and volume of your tear film to ensure it meets the optimal requirements for LASIK surgery.

Other Eye Measurements

Our dedicated medical professionals utilize advanced microscopy to conduct a thorough analysis of your eyes’ intricate structure, uncovering any potential underlying issues. Throughout this meticulous examination, our experts meticulously scrutinize for indicators of conditions such as diabetes, allergies, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Moreover, we meticulously measure essential dimensions of your eyes, including length, width, and pupil size, ensuring a comprehensive assessment and personalized care plan tailored to your needs.

Are You a Candidate?

Throughout our LASIK consultations, our medical team meticulously evaluates your suitability for the procedure. We prioritize providing comprehensive education to each patient, elucidating the rationale behind our recommendations, and engaging in a thorough discussion of the potential benefits and risks associated with LASIK surgery. Here are some pivotal factors our doctors consider when assessing your candidacy:
  • Age
  • General Health
  • Eye Health
  • Eye Problems
  • Eye Injury
  • Nursing or Pregnancy
  • Dry Eye Condition
  • Stable Vision
  • Contact Use
  • Corneal Thickness
