What is LASIK?

Unlock the potential for permanent vision correction with LASIK, or laser in-situ keratomileusis, a popular procedure for individuals aged 18 and above. LASIK works by reshaping the cornea to enhance light focus on the retina, located at the back of the eye.

 

Curious about LASIK? Start by expressing your interest during a comprehensive eye exam, where our experienced doctors will assess your candidacy for the procedure during a LASIK consultation.

 

LASIK surgery effectively addresses common refractive errors, including:

 

  • 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.

 

During LASIK surgery, your ophthalmologist will apply numbing drops to your eyes and utilize a laser to delicately fashion a tiny flap in your cornea. This process is painless and typically takes around 20 minutes to complete. Following this, the tissue beneath the flap undergoes reshaping with another laser before the flap is carefully put back into place. It’s common to experience dry eyes post-surgery, for which you’ll be provided with prescribed eye drops to maintain moisture and prevent infection and inflammation. Most individuals observe enhanced vision within a few days as they embark on the relatively brief recovery journey.

Patient Background + History

Our medical team carefully evaluates your medical history, patient background, and various other factors to determine your suitability for LASIK surgery. Your overall health and eligibility hinge significantly on your medical history. Therefore, it’s crucial for interested patients to provide accurate information, allowing our doctors to assess any underlying conditions that may impact the procedure. These essential criteria encompass a range of factors, including but 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 team of specialists carefully reviews your previous medical data to determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery. During this crucial time, we encourage you to freely express any private concerns you may have. Accurate data is necessary for us to make wise decisions. You can be confident that we will take care of any concerns you may have and ensure that every choice is made with your needs in mind.

Analysis of the Overall Health of Your Eyes

In order to evaluate your candidacy for LASIK, our specialists will perform a thorough series of tests during your appointment. Some of these tests may be new to you, while others may be familiar from past eye exams. Throughout the appointment, our doctors will keep you informed, address any concerns you may have, explain the purpose of each test, and carefully review your results with you. It’s important to understand and trust the process, as we are here to support you every step of the way.

 

Ability to Focus

If you regularly wear contacts or glasses, our professionals will likely conduct many of the same exams you’ve undergone before. They will thoroughly assess your ability to see clearly and focus your eyesight. This evaluation involves examining your eyesight from multiple perspectives using various manual refraction tests, including the well-known “Pick One or Two” method. Additionally, digital analyzers will measure light scattering and vision quality as light enters your eyes to confirm the findings of the manual refraction. These comprehensive evaluations empower our experts to determine the most effective course of action for enhancing your vision.

 

 

Dilated Eye Exam

In order to see the lens and retinas in the back of your eyes, our doctors will use a solution to enlarge your pupils. Once your pupils are fully dilated, refraction measures will be performed. This allows our specialists to obtain more precise readings and validate the results of the initial refraction.

 

Front of Your Eyes

Our advanced diagnostic process involves employing high-resolution scans to meticulously analyze your eye tissue down to the micron level. During your examination, you’ll be guided through a series of cutting-edge digital scanners, capturing detailed images of your eye’s surface and lens. These scans play a crucial role in assessing various aspects, including corneal health, tear film condition, eyelid wellness, and potential early signs of cataracts. Furthermore, the high-resolution scans offer comprehensive insights into the curvature, shape, and thickness of your cornea, aiding in precise diagnosis and personalized treatment planning.

 

Inside + Surface of Your Eyes

Digital technology will be employed to capture detailed images of your retinas or the intricate structures behind your eyeballs. The retina plays a pivotal role in processing light rays and transmitting vital nerve impulses to your brain, facilitating clear vision. Through these captured images, our expert team can thoroughly assess the health and functionality of your retina. Moreover, our specialists will meticulously evaluate the composition and volume of your tear film, crucial factors to ensure optimal conditions for successful LASIK surgery.

 

Other Eye Measurements

In a comprehensive assessment aimed at uncovering any latent issues, our skilled specialists employ state-of-the-art microscopy to examine the entirety of your eye’s structure. Diligently searching for indicators of conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, allergies, and macular degeneration, our experts leave no stone unturned during this phase of evaluation. Additionally, precise measurements of pupil length, width, and size are taken to ensure an accurate understanding of your eye’s dimensions.

Are You a Candidate?

During our LASIK consultations, our expert team evaluates whether LASIK surgery is the right option for you. We ensure every patient is well-informed about the suitability of LASIK, including its associated benefits and risks. Here are several factors our doctors assess to determine your eligibility:

 

  • Age
  • General Health
  • Eye Health
  • Eye Problems
  • Eye Injury
  • Nursing or Pregnancy
  • Dry Eye Condition
  • Stable Vision
  • Contact Use
  • Corneal Thickness
