What Is LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK is a precise and controlled method of removing tiny parts of tissue from the cornea. During the surgery, a laser is used to change the shape of the cornea to help light properly focus on the retina. After the cornea heals, which usually just takes 24 hours, you will be able to enjoy clear vision. Along with that, you may be able to eliminate eyeglasses or contacts.
How Our Optometrist Can Help
LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist. However, our optometrist, Dr. Jason Oilar, can assist with pre- and post-surgery care. We can perform an exam and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If we determine that you qualify, we will provide you with a referral. While this surgery is safe, we are here to help with any complications or symptoms you may experience afterward. Along with that, we will schedule follow-up visits to make sure that you are healing properly. When you visit us regularly, our optometrist can monitor your eye health and provide any necessary treatments or update your eyeglass or contact lens prescription as needed.
