Is Laser Eye Surgery Right for Me?
Your eligibility for laser eye surgery can depend on a variety of factors, such as your medical history, ocular health, eye shape, vision needs, lifestyle, and so on. However, you may benefit from laser eye surgery if:
- You’re over 25
- You have astigmatism
- You’re nearsighted or farsighted
- Your prescription hasn’t changed 7+ years
Understanding Laser Eye Surgery
Laser eye surgery has become one of the most common elective eye procedures in North America. Procedures like LASIK boast high success rates and 8/10 patients say they no longer need glasses or contact lenses to see.
Laser eye surgery can provide you with:
- Improved vision
- Long-lasting visual results
- Quick recovery time
- Reduced dependency on prescription eyewear
- Fast results & no need for stitches/bandages
LASIK is the most common laser eye surgery performed and has a very high success rating. Using a special laser, your ophthalmologist can reshape your cornea to correct your vision. The procedure is quick and typically painless.
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a similar procedure to LASIK as it also involves using a laser to reshape your cornea, but the ophthalmologist doesn’t make any incision along the cornea during PRK. This can be a great option for patients with thinner corneas or active lifestyles.
Helping You See More Clearly
If you’re looking for clearer vision, refractive surgery can help improve your sight. With refractive, you don’t need to wear traditional eyewear to see clearly. After assessing your eyes during a surgical consultation, we can refer you to a trusted surgeon.
Visit our practice, and we can determine your eligibility for refractive surgery. Our team is here to provide pre- and post-operative care, educating you about refractive surgery and aiding in your after-care. We’re excited to help you enjoy clearer vision!
What Is Refractive Surgery?
While refractive surgery can help improve your vision, not everyone is eligible for it. Each person’s vision situation is unique, but an ideal candidate for surgery meets the following criteria:
- Free of eye disease
- Has an appropriate refractive error
- Knows they may still need glasses after surgery
- Understands the risks & potential side effects of eye surgery
- Wants to lower their reliance on glasses & contact lenses
How We Help During the Surgical Process
Think of us as your support team throughout the surgery process—we can educate you on the different surgery options, provide consultations to determine your eligibility for surgery, and book follow-up appointments after your procedure is complete.
Your consultation involves a comprehensive eye exam where we check if refractive surgery is right for your needs. We can review the different surgery options and explain their benefits and risks. Afterwards, we can refer you to a surgeon to complete your surgery.
After finishing your procedure, we’ll book follow-up appointments to assess how your eyes are healing and answer any questions you may have.
Types of Refractive Surgery
We offer consultations for LASIK and SMILE surgery at InVision Eye Care.
LASIK is a popular laser eye surgery for correcting refractive errors. It involves using a laser to reshape the cornea for improved vision.
During LASIK, your surgeon cuts a small flap into the cornea to access its inner layers. Your surgeon removes corneal tissue with a specialized laser to correct your refractive error. After surgery, they lay the flap in its original position to heal.
SMILE (small incision lenticule extraction) is a refractive surgery where your surgeon uses a laser to reshape the cornea.
During SMILE, your doctor flattens the cornea and uses a laser to create a disc-shaped piece out of the cornea (the lenticule) beneath the eye’s surface. They then make a small incision into the cornea to access this disc. Your surgeon removes the lenticule through the initial incision, reshaping your cornea and improving vision.
