Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian - LASIK Surgery
LASIK eye surgery offers an alternative to using glasses or contacts to correct refractive errors in your sight. If you’ve worn glasses for years, you may be ready for a change. At Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian, we offer pre- and post-op care for LASIK procedures. We can help you determine if LASIK is a viable option for you.
Who’s a Good Candidate for LASIK Surgery?
LASIK surgery corrects problems with myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea of your eye. This gives you clearer, crisper vision without the aid of contacts or eyeglasses. To qualify for this procedure, you must meet certain conditions. First, you must be at least 18 years of age. Next, you must be free of eye diseases or conditions like glaucoma or dry eye that can affect the outcome of your surgery. You must also be free of autoimmune diseases that can hinder your healing. LASIK candidates must also have a steady prescription for at least one year.
Pre-Op LASIK Care
Our optometrist will review your medical history and test your eye health and vision to determine if LASIK is a good fit for you. If you are a good candidate, we’ll go over all the aspects of the surgery with you so you’ll have a clear understanding of what to expect. Then we’ll refer you to a reputable eye surgeon for the procedure.
Post-Op LASIK Care
Once you’ve undergone LASIK eye surgery, we will follow up on your recovery to ensure your eyes heal properly. Follow-up visits will be scheduled for the next six months after your surgery with a final post-op exam scheduled after one year to wrap up your post-op care. On each visit, we’ll evaluate your progress in vision improvement and ensure your eyes are healing as they should.
