For emergencies, please call 911.
Please consider this as 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.
Please understand that medical conditions can have an impact on your success with any surgical treatment. Case in point, a patient with diabetes may develop cataracts earlier in their lives than someone without; they could have unstable eyeglass prescriptions from uncontrolled glucose levels, or even retinal problems which create difficulty in obtaining a good result with surgical of glasses correction.
Here at Avery Eye Clinic, the staff and physicians will evaluate each one of these complex factors when you receive your thorough eye exam. Also, please note that women who are pregnant should typically wait a few months after delivery or nursing before undergoing LASIK. Also, be sure to inform your doctor of any medications you may be taking as they may cause changes or fluctuations in your vision.
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. If they are wearing hard contacts, the wait should be about six weeks before the testing is completed for the surgical correction.
During your FREE consultation, we will explain the options and benefits of refractive surgery and also do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a candidate.
Set up your FREE appointment today for this exclusive LASIK consult to see if you are a candidate for laser vision correction.
