What is LASIK?

Adults over the age of 18 can have laser in-situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, as a permanent vision correction procedure. Your LASIK surgeon will reshape your cornea during this procedure in order to improve the efficiency of light concentration on the retina located in the rear of your eye. During your comprehensive eye exam, you will have the chance to express your interest in LASIK surgery. Following that, a LASIK consultation will be performed by one of our specialists to ascertain your suitability for the procedure. With regard to vision correction, LASIK is frequently used to treat the following refractive issues:


  • 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.


After giving you a local anesthetic, your LASIK surgeon will use a laser to create a tiny flap in your cornea. In as little as 20 minutes, the painless operation can be finished. Before the flap is put back in place, a second laser will be used to remodel the tissue beneath it. After surgery, you can have dry eyes. Your doctor will prescribe eye drops to keep your eyes moist and prevent infection and irritation. After beginning the comparatively quick healing process, the majority of patients see better eyesight within a few days.

Patient Background + History

Once our experts have thoroughly reviewed your medical history, patient background, and various other factors, they will ascertain whether you are a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery. Your medical history significantly influences your eligibility for LASIK surgery and your overall health. Accurate information from interested patients is crucial for our specialists to be aware of any underlying conditions that require attention and consideration. Some essential criteria 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


Our experts carefully examine your medical background and history to make sure they appropriately determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery. At this stage of your session, it is important that you provide accurate information, and we welcome you to voice any personal reservations or worries. Our first priority is your happiness and well-being, and clearing up any doubts helps to guarantee that decisions are made carefully and sensibly.

Analysis of the Overall Health of Your Eyes

In order to assess your candidacy further, our doctors will perform a battery of thorough tests during your LASIK consultation. Certain tests might be new to you, while others might be familiar from prior eye exams. During the visit, our doctors will be available to make sure you are comfortable, go over the purpose of each test with you, answer any questions you may have, and go over your results in detail. We’re here to support you at every stage, and your comprehension and trust in the process are crucial.


Ability to Focus

Many of the tests that our professionals will perform are likely ones you’ve already had done if you typically wear contacts or glasses. Your eyes’ capacity to focus and the clarity of your vision will be closely examined by our doctors. With a variety of manual refraction tests, such as the well-known “Pick One or Two” technique, our experts will assess your vision from different perspectives. To verify the results of manual refraction and measure light scattering and vision quality as light enters your eyes, computerized analyzers will also be utilized. These thorough evaluations let our specialists decide which course of action will best improve your vision.


Dilated Eye Exam

Our doctors will utilize a solution to dilate your pupils, allowing them to examine the lens and retinas at the back of your eyes. Refraction measurements will be taken once your pupils have fully dilated. This step enables our experts to corroborate the initial refraction findings and obtain more precise measurements, ensuring thorough assessment and accuracy in diagnosis.


Front of Your Eyes

We use high-resolution scans to assess your eye tissue at a microscopic level. You’ll look into high-definition digital scanners to capture detailed images of your eye surface and lens. These scans help evaluate your cornea, tear film, eyelid health, and early cataract signs. They also provide detailed data on corneal curvature, shape, and thickness.


Inside + Surface of Your Eyes

We’ll use a digital device to capture images of your retinas or the inner eye structure. The retina processes incoming light rays and sends nerve impulses to your brain, enabling vision. These images allow our doctors to assess the health and function of your retina. Additionally, they’ll evaluate tear film composition and volume to ensure it’s suitable for LASIK surgery.


Other Eye Measurements

Utilizing a high-powered microscope, our doctors meticulously scrutinize the intricate structure of your eyes, uncovering any potential hidden issues. This crucial examination stage involves screening for conditions like diabetes, allergies, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Additionally, precise measurements of your eye dimensions, including length, width, and pupil size, are taken to ensure thorough evaluation and personalized care.

Are You a Candidate?

Throughout our LASIK consultations, our medical team dedicates meticulous attention to evaluating your suitability for the procedure. We prioritize providing comprehensive education, ensuring every patient grasps the rationale behind our recommendations. Engaging in thorough discussions, we delve into the potential benefits and risks associated with LASIK surgery. Here are some essential factors our doctors carefully 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
