What is LASIK?

LASIK, or laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a permanent kind of vision repair available to adults over the age of 18. Your LASIK surgeon will reshape your cornea during this surgery to enhance the efficiency of light concentration on the retina, which is located in the rear of the eye. At your thorough eye exam, you will be given the opportunity to express interest in LASIK surgery. Following that, a LASIK consultation will be performed by one of our professionals to determine whether you are a good candidate for the operation. The following refractive problems are commonly treated by LASIK in terms of 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.

 

LASIK surgery is a relatively quick and painless procedure, lasting up to 20 minutes. Your LASIK surgeon will numb your eyes and use a laser to create a thin flap in your cornea. Another laser will reshape the tissue under the flap, which will then be replaced. After surgery, your eyes may feel dry, and you’ll receive prescription eye drops to prevent infection, inflammation, and maintain moisture. Recovery is typically swift, with most patients experiencing improved vision within a few days.

Patient Background + History

Our doctors will assess your candidacy by thoroughly examining your patient background, health history, and various other factors. Patient health history plays a crucial role in determining LASIK candidacy and overall health. It’s imperative for interested patients to provide accurate information so our doctors can be informed about any underlying conditions that need to be documented and considered. These underlying conditions 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

 

With meticulous care, our experts delve into your medical background and history to accurately ascertain your suitability for LASIK surgery. This crucial stage relies on precise information, and we wholeheartedly welcome any personal reservations or concerns you may harbor. Your happiness and well-being are at the forefront of our priorities, and addressing any uncertainties ensures that decisions are made with utmost thoughtfulness and sensitivity.

Analysis of the Overall Health of Your Eyes

In your LASIK consultation, our doctors conduct a comprehensive series of tests to thoroughly evaluate your suitability for the procedure. While some tests may feel familiar from previous eye exams, others may be entirely new experiences. Throughout the appointment, our doctors prioritize your comfort, explaining the purpose of each test and addressing any concerns you may have. They ensure thorough discussion of your results, fostering understanding and confidence in the process. Rest assured, we’re here to support you every step of the way.

 

Ability to Focus

Our professionals will probably perform tests that you are accustomed to if you wear contacts or glasses. They will carefully evaluate how well your eyes can concentrate and how clear your vision is. They will use a variety of manual refraction tests, such as the well-known “Pick One or Two” approach, to assess your eyesight from several perspectives. Digital analyzers will also evaluate light scattering and vision quality as light enters your eyes, verifying the results of the manual refraction. These thorough evaluations enable our professionals to identify the best course of action for enhancing your vision.

 

Dilated Eye Exam

Our doctors will administer a pupil-dilating solution to examine the lens and retinas at the back of your eyes. Once your pupils have fully dilated, they will proceed to measure your refraction. At this stage, our experts may validate the initial refraction results and obtain more precise measurements, ensuring a thorough assessment and accurate diagnosis.

 

Front of Your Eyes

We carefully examine your eye tissue at the microscopic level with our state-of-the-art high-resolution scans. We take exact pictures of the surface and lens of your eyes using state-of-the-art digital scanners. Your cornea, tear film, eyelid health, and early indicators of cataract development are all thoroughly assessed by these scans. In addition, they offer comprehensive information about the cornea’s thickness, form, and curvature, guaranteeing an exact diagnosis and comprehensive evaluation.

 

Inside + Surface of Your Eyes

We use a digital device to take images of your retinas or the structure behind your eyeball. The retina processes light rays and sends signals to your brain, allowing you to see images. These images help our doctors assess your retina’s health and function. Additionally, they check the tear film composition and volume in your eyes to ensure it’s suitable for LASIK surgery.

 

Other Eye Measurements

Our doctors use a high-powered microscope to examine your eyes in detail and detect any hidden problems. They check for signs of conditions such as diabetes, allergies, macular degeneration, and glaucoma during this examination. Additionally, they measure the dimensions of your eyes, including the length, width, and size of your pupils.

Are You a Candidate?

Our experts will determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery during your consultation. Before having LASIK surgery, every patient is given thorough information regarding the dangers and advantages of the procedure, as well as the reasons why it may or may not be appropriate for them. Our doctors take into account the following important information 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
