How a Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

When you come in for your consultation, we’ll start by looking at the structure and function of your eyes to make sure you’re a good candidate for surgery. We’ll also confirm what level of correction you need.

Once we’ve run our tests and made sure surgery is a good choice for you, it’s your turn to bring up any questions, concerns, or expectations you might have. We’ll take our time, giving detailed answers and making sure you understand all the information we’ve given you.

Once you’ve decided on going ahead with your surgery, we’ll refer you to an experienced and trustworthy ophthalmologist to perform the operation.

The 3 Most Popular Laser Refractive Surgeries

PRK was the first laser refractive surgery ever performed and has actually gained popularity in recent years. This particular procedure is safer for patients with thin corneas.

The ophthalmologist will use a laser to reshape the cornea, correcting the refractive error. The procedure takes only about 15 minutes per eye and should provide clearer vision within a few days. The patient’s vision should stabilize within a few weeks.

After the surgery, we’ll follow up to check your vision and make sure everything is healing as it should.

LASIK was designed to reduce recovery time and risk of infection. It’s now the most popular refractive surgery in the world.

To begin, an ophthalmologist will create a flap in the outer layers of the cornea, folding it back to reveal the middle layers. Using a laser, they’ll reshape the middle layers of the cornea to correct the refractive area. Once this is finished, the flap will be replaced.

The patient should have clear vision within 24 hours of the procedure and should have stabilized vision within about a week. After your surgery, we’ll follow up with you to make sure you’re healing properly and to check your vision.

LASEK follows a similar process to LASIK, only it uses a smaller corneal flap, making it safer for patients with thin corneas. The ophthalmologist will apply an alcohol solution to the eye, causing the very thin top layer of the cornea to float away.

They’ll then use a laser to reshape the middle layers of the cornea,. You’ll be given contact lenses which will cover the corneal flap, allowing it to heal; much like a bandage.

Patients usually experience clear vision within a week, and their vision stabilizes within a few weeks. After your surgery, we’ll follow up with you to test your vision and make sure everything is healing properly.
