Laser Eye Surgery:
Evaluation and Referral
What is Laser Eye Surgery?
This is an eye surgery that uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. Laser eye surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other eye conditions.
At See Life Family Vision we provide the necessary evaluations and referrals for patients interested in this surgery. We perform a complete review of of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. This exam is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for this surgery, and the history review allows our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery. These findings are then sent to the ophthalmologists we refer to, as they will perform the surgery.
We conduct all post-operative care. Once your surgery is scheduled, the ophthalmologists will have us contact you to schedule all follow-up appointments for you at our office. These follow-ups will typically happen in the following timeline: the day after surgery, appointments prearranged over the following 6 months, as well as 1 year. Your 1 year appointment will be a comprehensive eye exam to determine the long-term results of your procedure.
It is important to remember that laser eye surgery does not mean that annual eye exams are no longer needed. Annual eye exams do not just determine visual acuity. They are a necessary step in monitoring overall eye health.
