Many patients find that neither eyeglasses nor contact lenses are an ideal fit for their lifestyle. Laser eye surgery, such as LASIK, can offer you freedom from contact lenses and eyeglasses as well as crisp, clear vision. Choosing to undergo laser eye surgery is a big decision, so it is important to do your research. OPMT Vision Centers are here to help.
To help you decide if Laser Eye Surgery is the right choice for you, we are pleased to offer laser eye surgery consultation appointments.
Could I Benefit from Laser Eye Surgery?
To undergo laser vision correction, you must be at least 18 years old and have a refractive error that negatively impacts your vision. Candidates must also have a stable prescription prior to their surgery date, and their eyes must be healthy and free of disease and infections. It is also recommended that you be in good general health before have any elective surgery. To find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK schedule your laser eye surgery consultation appointment today.
Your Consultation Appointment
During your laser vision correction consultation appointment, we will perform a series of tests to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for surgery. Your corneal thickness, ocular health, prescription, and refractive stability all factor into this assessment. During this consultation appointment, we will also answer any questions you have about your surgical options, the procedure itself, and address any concerns.
If laser eye surgery is a good option for you, we will review the potential risks and complications with you and discuss your expected visual results. Then we will refer you to an ophthalmologist for the procedure.
After Your Laser Eye Surgery
After your laser vision correction, we will schedule you for a series of follow up appointments at one of the OPMT Vision Center locations so that we can monitor the healing process.
