LASIK and Refractive Eye Surgery Consultations
If you are considering laser vision correction, the first step will be a LASIK and refractive eye surgery consultation. The goal of this consultation is to inform you about your treatment options and determine if you are a good candidate for refractive eye surgery, as it is not right for everyone. At Lawrenceville Family Eyecare, we offer LASIK eye surgery consultations to help you determine the best choice for your eye health. We will perform all the necessary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for refractive surgery and then co-manage your case with the best surgeons in Georgia.
What Is Refractive Eye Surgery?
Refractive eye surgeries can include a variety of different procedures, but LASIK surgery is the most widely known. It is an option often selected by those wanting to reduce or eliminate the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses. LASIK surgery is a minimally invasive outpatient surgery. The surgery is performed using a computer-controlled laser and a small blade to reshape the cornea. This quick procedure typically involves minor side effects and minimal discomfort for the patient. LASIK eye surgery is most often used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Your Refractive Eye Surgery Consultation
A comprehensive eye exam at our eye care center in Lawrenceville is the first step in determining if LASIK or another vision correction procedure is right for you. When you make your appointment, please mention your interest in laser eye surgery. Our staff will be sure to include a LASIK consultation during your exam.
Your eye exam will include an assessment of your vision and overall eye health. We will also use this time to determine if vision correction surgery may be appropriate for you. To determine your candidacy, we will evaluate your current prescription as well as other factors such as the presence of eye diseases and the thickness and shape of your cornea.
At Lawrenceville Family Eyecare, we’re happy to discuss the various refractive surgery options with you. We will also review the possible risks and benefits as well as surgery costs, which can vary depending on the type of LASIK technology used. If you are found to be a good candidate for laser eye correction, we will refer you to a qualified ophthalmologist in the area and provide follow-up care after your surgery.
