Rely Less on Frames & Contacts

There’s a lot of talk about laser eye surgery these days. Because your vision likely won’t improve throughout their life (oh, the woes of aging), you may be wondering what laser eye surgery can offer you in the future.

Laser eye surgery is now more accessible than ever. You can determine if the surgery is right for you simply by having a consultation appointment with the team at Golden Hills Optometry.

Consultations & Co-Management

What Are Consultations?

Consultations are the process of examining your eyes and ensuring they’re healthy enough for laser eye surgery and if the procedure is right for your needs. While many people can have laser eye surgery safely, there are still several eye conditions that could affect your candidacy.

These conditions can include:

It’s important to note that, even if you’re approved for surgery, you aren’t guaranteed 20/20 vision. While many people report 20/20 or 20/40 vision after surgery, you may still need glasses or contact lenses in certain situations.

Once we determine your candidacy, we’ll refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist to perform the procedure.

Co-management is how we help ensure your eyes heal properly after the surgery. After your procedure, our team will schedule a series of follow-up appointments with you where we’ll examine your eyes, assess how they’re healing, and see how your vision is developing.

It’s common to experience a few different side effects after your appointment, but these are normal, and your eyes should start to stabilize after a few days. Symptoms can include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Halos around lights
  • Glare
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurry vision
  • General discomfort

Please call us if you believe your symptoms are worsening or lasting longer than expected.

What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is one of the most common types of laser eye surgery due to its results, speed, and reliability. In some cases, ophthalmologists can perform this surgery in only minutes.

During this procedure, your ophthalmologist makes a small incision in the outermost layer of your cornea. With this incision, they create a flap that grants them access to your underlying corneal tissue, also known as your corneal stroma. Then, using a tool called an excimer laser, your ophthalmologist reshapes this tissue to correct your eyesight.

Once they reshape your corneal tissue, your ophthalmologist will place the flap back in its original position to heal. It may take a few weeks for your eyes to heal completely, and we usually recommend booking a few days off of work or school to recover.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the procedure, please feel free to call us today!
