At Epic Vision Eye Center, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. For those individuals who are tired of wearing glasses or contacts, LASIK can be a great alternative to achieve that goal. At Epic Vision we work closely with the areas most respected refractive surgeons, both before and after surgery, to ensure that you have a seamless experience. If you are curious about having LASIK, schedule a wellness exam and let your doctor know that you'd like to consider LASIK. The doctor will determine your refractive error, and take some general measurements to help determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK.
To be a good candidate for LASKI you must:
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Have stable refractive error for the last year (your vision has not gotten worse)
- Have no ocular or systemic health conditions which might disqualify you from the procedure (see Conditions We Treat for some examples
- Have adequate corneal thickness
- And a few other determining factors.
While the final decision to proceed with surgery can only be made by one of our preferred LASIK specialists, our doctors can usually offer a referral based on the exam findings at your wellness exam. If you are interested in LASIK, https://epicvisioneyecenters.c... today.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our 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.
