At Lafayette Optometric Group, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our doctors offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using the most advanced technologies.
Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other eye conditions. At Lafayette Optometric Group, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctors perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results.
Once our doctors have performed the evaluation and determined your suitability for LASIK, you will be given a referral to a LASIK surgery center best suited for your needs. The center will perform further diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will communicate with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (925) 283-3821 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will set up your follow-up appointments in our Lafayette office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call (925) 283-3821 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may wonder if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
