Something a Little More Permanent
How different would you feel if you didn’t have to rely on your lenses? Would it change your look? Your lifestyle? Would you try something new if you didn’t have to worry about smudges or fingerprints in your visual field?
If you’ve ever considered life beyond lenses, it might be time to consider laser eye surgery. However, this type of surgery isn’t for every prescription, but we can help determine if you’re a candidate by conducting a thorough laser eye surgery consultation.
Call today to book your consultation and turn your dream of a frame-less life into reality!
What is Consultation & Co-Management?
The first step towards laser eye surgery is a consultation. In this consultation, your optometrist will determine if laser eye surgery can improve your vision. Laser eye surgery could help correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Following your exam, your optometrist will want to outline a few details about the surgery, talk about your expectations, and discuss your recovery.
Once we’ve determined your candidacy for surgery, we’ll refer you to one of our trusted ophthalmologists.
Following your surgery, we’ll book a series of follow-up appointments at Griffin Optometric Group – Talega to ensure that your eyes are healing correctly.
You can expect some side effects post-surgery, including:
- Dry eyes
- Sensitivity to Light
- Blurred vision
- General discomfort
These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process, but if they appear to be escalating, contact us right away.
LASIK Eye Surgery
During LASIK surgery, the ophthalmologist numbs your eyes with drops and makes a small incision in the outermost corneal layer. This incision creates a thin flap that folds back to expose the corneal tissue. Your corneal tissue is reshaped using a pre-programmed laser to the desired prescription.
