Gain Freedom & Flexibility With Laser Eye Surgery

If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, chances are you’ve considered corrective eye surgery. Eye surgery can be a great solution, but there are some things you will need to consider before booking your surgery.

LASIK Eye Surgery

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is one of the most well-known and common refractive surgeries. It is performed using an excimer laser to change the shape of the cornea and correct the refraction of light entering the eye, so it lands on the retina. LASIK is used to correct refractive errors, like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

There are some risks associated with LASIK, and there are some eye conditions that can increase these risks or make LASIK unsuitable. A laser eye surgery consultation is essential in determining if LASIK eye surgery is suitable for you specifically.

At Eye Care Plus, we offer full-service LASIK consultations that include pre and post-operative care.

The LASIK Consultation Process

Your LASIK consultation includes a series of tests and assessments to evaluate your ocular health and refractive error to determine if LASIK is an option for you. We will begin by discussing your medical history and current medications. Some medical conditions and medications can increase your risk of complications associated with LASIK or may make this procedure unsuitable for you.

We will go over all the associated risks of LASIK during your consultation, and ensure you have realistic expectations going into the surgery. This is also the perfect time to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have.

Tests Performed During the Consultation

We will take high-resolution scans to evaluate your cornea, tear film, and overall health of the front of your eyes. This will also give us information on the thickness, shape, and curvature of your cornea.

We will also take digital images of your retina to evaluate its health and function, and perform tests to detect possible signs of eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Our primary aim is to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to undergo LASIK, with minimal risk to your ocular health, to reduce the chances of developing side effects.

If you’re considering laser eye surgery, a consultation is an essential first step. Book yours today and meet with one of our experienced optometrists to learn more.
