Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions.
At Eastgate Optometric Clinic, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctor performs a complete review of your ocular history as well as a full assessment of ocular health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery as well as the ocular history review will enables our doctor to determine if your prescription is stable to consider surgery.
Once doctor performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will re-confirm your eligibility for surgery to proceed with LASIK. Our office will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery date is set, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure.
Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
