Lasik Eye Surgery
At Trend Eye Care, we provide comprehensive care to meet the visual needs of our patients. Our optometrists offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using the most advanced technologies.
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery is effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. LASIK surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. At Trend Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our optometrists perform a complete review of your medical and ocular history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and to evaluate if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and if you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once our optometrist has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, contact us to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is date is set, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full examination is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our optometrists are experienced in working with pre- and post-operative patients and will answer any questions that you have throughout the process. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, contact us to speak with our knowledgeable staff.
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, the procedure has great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
