What Are Consultations?
Laser eye surgery consultations are eye exams we structure to determine if your eyes are healthy enough for laser eye surgery, and if so, which type of laser eye surgery may suit you best.
While laser eye surgery is safe for most adults to have, there are some issues that may affect your candidacy. These problems can include dry eye, eye disease, corneal conditions, oversized pupils, or frequent eye infections.
Types of Laser Eye Surgeries
The type of laser eye surgery you have depends on the issue you wish to correct and your eye health. Different surgeries may have different recovery processes, so we’ll book a series of follow-up appointments to ensure your eyes are healing correctly and delivering the results you’re looking for.
You may experience a few side effects after your surgery, but these should subside within a couple of weeks. These can include dry eye, light sensitivity, glare, blurry vision, or discomfort. If your symptoms are more severe or lasting longer than described, please call our team as soon as you can.
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is one of America’s most common types of laser eye surgeries.
During the surgery, your ophthalmologist will make a small incision in the outermost layer of your cornea to create a flap. Folding the flap over, your ophthalmologist can reshape your underlying corneal tissue using a device called an excimer laser. Reshaping the corneal tissue can correct your refractive error.
After your surgery, the flap is placed back in its original position, where it will heal over the next few weeks.
During the surgery, your ophthalmologist will make an incision in the outermost layer of your cornea. Instead of making a flap (like in LASIK), the layer is removed before using an excimer laser to reshape the underlying corneal tissue.
Your eyes will heal the outermost corneal layer over a few weeks.
RLE / Cataract Surgery
If you have cataracts, your ophthalmologist can replace the cloudy cataract lens with a clear intraocular lens to help restore your vision.
