The LASIK Eye Surgery Journey

LASIK eye surgery is one of the most popular types of vision correction procedures available today. It is used to correct problems with eye focus and clarity in order to bring about significant improvements in vision. In many cases, patients are able to stop wearing their glasses or contacts once recovery is complete.

Who is a Good Candidate for LASIK?

Good candidates share a number of traits, including:

  • Vision that has been stable for at least a year
  • Good general eye health
  • Good overall health
  • Age of at least 18

How We Make Sure You're a Good Candidate

When you set up a consultation for LASIK consideration here at The Eye Institute, we don't just look at your eyes. We explain the LASIK procedure completely so that you know exactly what it involves both during and after the surgery.

Once you decide to proceed to the next step, we get your medical history, and of course, examine your eyes. By using this multi-step process, we ensure that you are a good candidate both mentally and physically.

What if You Aren't a Good Candidate?

There is usually no need to despair. Other vision correction surgeries will be explored to see if you're a better match for one of them. With so many choices, it's likely that at least one alternative will work.

What Happens After Surgery?

Once surgery is complete, your optometrist in Knightdale, NC will continue to do all that is possible to ensure the best possible outcome. You can look forward to detailed instructions on post-operative home care. There will also be follow up visits to ensure that your progress is coming along as expected.

In most cases, you'll notice a definite improvement in your vision the very day after your surgery. Even so, it is possible to notice even more improvement in the weeks or months to come. Therefore, you should not consider your initial results to be your final ones.

One thing to keep in mind is that you won't be able to drive right away. This is because the doctor will have to confirm your new visual acuity for the local authorities. Simply arrange for a ride to the follow-up appointment - typically the next day - to get your authorization with a minimum of delay.

Considering LASIK Eye Surgery?

The first step to having your vision surgically improved is to have that initial consultation. Call The Eye Institute today to get started on your vision recovery procedure.

Family of 4 that recently moved to the area and we are so thankful to have found such a wonderful office!! One of the hardest things when relocating is finding new doctors, but this was an easy one. The staff and Dr.'s are absolutely wonderful. From the very first phone call to the last check out, everyone in the office went above and beyond to make sure that our care and needs were being met. We have 2 younger children and they loved their office visit. We were able to get appointments right away and all of us were seen at the same time, such a stress taken off our shoulders with that one!! Thank you again to such an amazing office, so very thankful we found you!!!
