Could Laser Eye Surgery be Right for You?

Clear vision without glasses or contacts? It might sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what laser eye surgery can offer. Many people with common vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism find that laser surgery provides excellent long-term outcomes.

Laser eye surgery can also be a big decision, so it’s best to understand the procedure as best you can before choosing it for yourself. Contact us and schedule your comprehensive eye exam to learn more about whether laser eye surgery is right for you.

How we Co-Manage Your Laser Eye Surgery and Follow Up Appointments

When you reach out to us for a consultation on laser eye surgery, we’ll conduct a thorough assessment to determine whether you’re a suitable candidate. Specifically, we will gather specific information about the following factors:

  • The thickness of your cornea
  • The stability of your vision
  • Your current prescription
  • Your personal and family medical history

If we determine that laser eye surgery is right for you, we’ll have a thorough discussion about what laser eye surgery can and can’t accomplish. That way, you’ll know what you can reasonably expect if you decide to go ahead with any laser eye surgery procedure.

We also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your vision and support your healing process after the surgery. Regular follow-ups can help us prevent postoperative complications that could affect your recovery process.

Types of Laser Surgery

LASIK eye surgery is one of the world’s most popular forms of laser eye surgery due to its minimal infection risk and the relatively short amount of recovery time it requires.

During LASIK, your ophthalmologist will create a minuscule flap in your cornea’s outer layer and fold it back to expose the middle layers. They will then reshape the cornea’s middle layers (the corneal stroma) with a laser to correct any refractive errors and finish by carefully replacing the initial flap they created.

Most patients who undergo LASIK can see clearly within 24 hours and can expect their vision to stabilize within 2 to 3 months.

Patients with thin corneas may not be suitable candidates for LASIK surgery since complications can occur if the flap on the cornea’s outer layer comes loose after the procedure. PRK represents a possible alternative for people with thin corneas and others who are at higher risk for LASIK complications.

PRK surgery removes the cornea’s outer layer (epithelium) and reshapes the corneal stroma with an excimer laser. It can take 5 days or so to return to normal activities after PRK since the cornea’s outer layer requires time to repair itself, and full recovery can take up to 6 months.
