This is an opportunity to speak with a knowledgeable LASIK counselor about the entire LASIK experience, including any worries that you may have. You can get real answers to your questions directly from your counselor or the eye surgeon who performs the procedures.
It is important to note that, as with any surgical treatment, other medical conditions may impact your success. For example, patients with diabetes may develop cataracts earlier in life, have unstable eyeglass prescriptions from uncontrolled glucose levels, or have retinal problems which may limit your surgeon’s ability to fully correct your vision.
The clinical team at Avery will evaluate each one of these complex factors when you receive your thorough eye exam. To assist with this evaluation, be sure to inform your doctor of any medications you may be taking as they may cause changes or fluctuations in your vision. Also, women who are pregnant should typically wait a few months after delivery or nursing before undergoing LASIK.
Because contact lenses temporarily alter the shape of the cornea, patients interested in LASIK vision correction should stop wearing their contact lenses for a minimum of two weeks if they wear soft contacts, or six weeks if they wear hard contacts, before the testing is completed for the surgical correction.
During your FREE consultation, we will explain the options and benefits of refractive surgery and do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a candidate.
Set up your appointment today for this exclusive LASIK consult to see if you are a candidate for laser vision correction.
