Is Laser Eye Surgery Right for You?
Before we can recommend laser eye surgery, we need to determine if it’s right for you, your eyes, and the clarity you want to achieve. Several conditions could affect the type of surgery we recommend or even prevent you from having surgery entirely.
These conditions can include dry eye, environmental concerns, large pupils, health conditions, and eye diseases. If we discover these issues, we may recommend an alternative like glasses or contact lenses.
What Are Consultations?
Consultations are eye exams we tailor to determine your candidacy for laser eye surgery.
During the consultation, we’ll take several measurements of your eyes, look at your eye health, and determine your vision quality. If you’re a candidate for laser eye surgery, we can put you in touch with an ophthalmologist, also known as an eye surgeon, to perform the procedure.
The laser eye surgery we recommend ultimately depends on your goals, eye health, and lifestyle. The most common types of laser eye surgery are LASIK and PRK surgery.
During the procedure, your eye surgeon numbs your eyes before making a small incision in the outermost layer of your cornea to create a flap. Opening the flap will give them access to your underlying corneal tissue, which they’ll then reshape with a laser to correct your vision.
At the end of the surgery, your surgeon will place the flap back in its original position, where it will heal over a few weeks.
The surgery follows a similar process to LASIK. Instead of creating a flap, your eye surgeon removes the outer layer of your cornea completely before reshaping the underlying tissue with a laser. This outer layer grows back over time as you recover.
