Lasik surgery is a vision correction option more and more people have turned to over the years. At Northcenter Eye Care, we are experienced in providing the essential pre- and post-operative care that helps make Lasik surgery a success.
In order to achieve a successful outcome, a comprehensive eye exam is needed to see if you are a good candidate. Lasik surgery is not appropriate for everyone, and we can help identify how helpful, if at all, it will be for you.
If you are considering Lasik surgery, talk to us before your exam. Contact lens wearers will be advised to switch to glasses full time as contact lenses can change the shape of the cornea. This is a key measurement for determining the plan for Lasik, so any measurement affected by contact lens use will not yield the best results and could be damaging.
You will need several post-operative exams over the course of six months. Risks associated with Lasik include infections, visual inconsistency, sensitivity, dryness, halos, among others. While Lasik is a highly successful surgery, issues do arise and are best treated immediately.
