LASIK Co-Management

LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a corrective refractive procedure, which is most commonly known as laser vision correction surgery, or simply, laser eye surgery. The effect of laser surgery is permanent and is used to treat Farsightedness (hyperopia), Nearsightedness (myopia) and Astigmatism. Astigmatism is basically a refractive condition or error that causes blurred vision for people due to imperfections in their eye’s curvature.

All these can be minimized or corrected using glasses and contacts as well. However, with progression in technology and medical practices, LASIK has become a very popular choice for patients with these conditions as the risks and after-effects of LASIK procedures conducted these days are very minimal, if any.

Having said that, LASIK or laser eye surgery in not for everyone. You need to consult with an optometrist to find out if LASIK is good for you. At Eyedeology, we welcome all potential clients with hyperopia, myopia, or astigmatism, to visit our location in Mission Viejo and our specialist will provide you with all the information about which corrective procedure is optimal for your visual needs. Normally, one of our optometrists will perform a thorough evaluation of your eye, starting with your general health and checking if your eyes are healthy enough to undergo the surgery. Other technical details may be collected by performing various tests like Corneal Topography and Wavefront Analysis, to evaluate different things like condition and shape of the cornea, pupil size, tear film on the eye surface, lid structure, etc.

For many years, Eyedeology has been working with the best LASIK surgeons and centers across Orange County to provide affordable pre and post-operative care. Along with a thorough pre-LASIK examination on your eyes, we also undergo a comprehensive discussion with all our clients to understand their requirements and how their professional and personal lives impact their vision, so that all the information is available for our optometrists and doctors to evaluate whether LASIK is the best option to correct your vision.  These procedures also allow us to develop a personalized treatment specific for each client so that our staff can take care of you both before and after the surgical procedure. There is a proper communication channel between our practice and your eye surgeon, where we ensure all patients are properly looked after through a professional collaboration.

Once you are assessed and ready for the LASIK procedure, we provide you with complete medical advice on how to prepare yourself before the day of the surgery and what to expect during your surgery. After your procedure, we will have appointments with you to monitor your healing process and ensure that you are not experiencing anything uncomfortable. At all stages, our cooperative staff is available for you, should you have any questions or concerns. You can also contact us with general queries by contacting our office, if you are interested in LASIK surgery for your vision correction and we will be very happy to assist you in making your decision about this procedure.
