LASIK and Refractive Eye Surgery Consultations & Co-Management
For the those who do not wish to wear contact lenses or eyeglasses, LASIK eye surgery or another type of vision correction may be a good choice for them. Refractive eye surgery, however, is not for everyone.
At Hayden Optometric, our doctors can help you determine if LASIK eye surgery or another corrective eye surgery is the right option for you. If you are a good candidate for refractive eye surgery and elect to have it done, we also provide both pre- and post-operative eye surgery care to support you through the preparation and recovery process.
Understanding Refractive Eye Surgeries
Refractive eye surgeries can include a variety of different procedures that can help with several vision correction issues. Many are performed with small computer-controlled lasers and done quickly with people being sent home the same day. The eye surgery you need will depend on your specific eye health.
LASIK surgery is the most well-known. LASIK surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that is performed to reshape the cornea. The outpatient procedure is quick and typically involves only minimal discomfort. LASIK eye surgery is most often used to correct three conditions: nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
At our eye care center in Mansfield, we can discuss the various options with you in a refractive eye surgery consultation to help you determine which procedure may be the best choice for your unique needs.
Corrective Eye Surgery & LASIK Consults
To determine if LASIK or another vision correction procedure is right for you, we will start with a laser eye surgery consultation in your exam.
Along with a routine eye exam tests that assess your vision and overall eye health, we will also conduct certain tests to decide if vision correction surgery may be appropriate for you. To determine your candidacy, we will evaluate your current prescription as well as other factors such as any presence of eye disease and the thickness and shape of your cornea. Because dry eye syndrome can cause complications with laser eye correction, our doctors can also direct you through dry eye treatment before surgery if necessary.
If you are found to be an ideal candidate for LASIK surgery or another laser vision correction procedure, our doctors will refer you to an experienced and qualified ophthalmologist in the Mansfield area. We will also attend to your pre-op eye surgery care, offering you recommendation and instructions on what to do before surgery.
Mansfield LASIK & Post-Operative Eye Care
After laser eye correction surgery, your eyes will need time to heal and recover. We offer post-operative LASIK and refractive eye surgery care in Mansfield. Post-operative laser eye surgery care involves monitoring your recovery and addressing any issues that may arise following surgery. We will observe any side effects and offer guidance on what to do to ensure a thorough recovery process.
