Is Laser Eye Surgery the Solution for You?

Laser eye surgery can offer some people clear vision without contacts or glasses. If you have myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, laser eye surgery could provide you with effective long-term vision correction.

It’s best to consider laser eye surgery carefully before choosing it for yourself, so be sure to consult your optometrist if you’re interested in this form of treatment. Our eye doctors can tell you everything you need to know about laser eye surgery and help you make an informed decision.

Laser Eye Surgery Co-Management & Follow-Up

We work closely with each prospective candidate for laser eye surgery to find out whether it can benefit them. When you schedule your consultation with us, we will collect information about:

  • Your cornea’s thickness
  • Your vision’s stability
  • Your current prescription
  • Your medical history (including family medical history)

If we find that you’re a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery, we’ll progress to a discussion about the potential outcomes so you know what to expect. You’ll then be able to decide for yourself.

Our eye doctors also arrange follow-up appointments after surgery to monitor and guide your healing process. These appointments reduce the risk of post-operative complications so you can enjoy comfortable eyes and healthy vision.

What Are the Different Kinds of Laser Eye Surgery?

LASIK

LASIK is the most common type of laser eye surgery. It has a 98.5% patient satisfaction rate when used to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism.

Your ophthalmologist will perform your LASIK procedure by making a small flap in the exterior of your cornea with a cutting laser. Next, they will use an excimer laser to reshape the corneal stroma and reposition the flap once they’ve finished.

LASIK offers short recovery times compared to other forms of laser eye surgery, with most patients regaining clear vision in under 24 hours and stable vision in under 3 months.

Some patients are poor candidates for LASIK because their corneas are too thin. Creating a flap in a thin cornea is potentially unsafe since the flap may come loose in the future and cause complications. Patients with thin corneas may benefit from PRK surgery instead.

During PRK, an excimer laser removes the cornea’s exterior entirely before reshaping the corneal stroma. Some studies have shown even higher patient satisfaction rates for PRK than for LASIK, but PRK also comes with longer recovery times—approximately 5 days for clear vision and 6 months for full recovery.
