We help interested parties in East Gwillimbury decide if LASIK is right for them during our LASIK consultations.
Deciding on what is right for you and your vision care is an important decision. Though many people are satisfied with using spectacles or contact lenses to improve their vision, the option to be free of those aids while still maintaining wonderful vision is appealing. LASIK technology is the use of laser surgery to improve farsightedness or nearsightedness, and some astigmatism, generally decreasing the constant reliance on corrective lens-wear. LASIK consultations are given by our trained professionals to determine if LASIK is a good option for you and your vision. We provide LASIK consultations for residents in the East Gwillimbury, Ontario area.
During your scheduled LASIK consultation, we will discuss your eye and vision history, current eyewear prescription and habits, your expectations regarding LASIK surgery, and any necessary medical history and medical prescriptions. Not all individuals will be candidates for LASIK. Some medical conditions such as diabetes or auto-immune disorders can affect your candidacy for the surgery, as can certain lifestyle choices or medication use. LASIK consultations also provide us with a chance to discuss with you what your expectations are regarding the surgery.
LASIK does not ensure the complete removal of a need for corrective eyewear. Many adults, for instance, might still need to use reading glasses as they age. Still, it can be highly freeing from complete reliance upon such eyewear for day-to-day life. During the exam, the doctor will do things often completed during a normal exam, such as pupil dilation; however, she will also specifically do a thorough examination of your cornea to check for suitability for the procedure.
Upon completion of the exam, your doctor will discuss their findings with you and recommend you for LASIK surgery if all appears to be in order and this is your desire. We then happily refer you to one of the area LASIK surgeons and are then available to you for post-op exams and follow-ups. If you are interested in corrective laser surgery, schedule a LASIK consultation with one of our doctors today.
