Refractive surgery has become a very popular option used to correct refractive error. In order to determine if you are a good candidate for a LASIK procedure, your optometrist will need to assess your refractive error, the thickness of your cornea as well as the health of your eyes. Thousands of patients have successfully undergone this treatment and are now living happily free of glasses and/or contact lenses. Although LASIK is relatively commonplace, it is very important that you first have a thorough eye examination and that we recommend the best surgeon for each individual patient’s case. Additionally, it is essential that we appropriately manage the healing process of our patients, as well as the long term future ocular health of each patient.
