We provide LASIK post-op exams for the East Gwillimbury area.
After having LASIK surgery, you are likely anxious to see and enjoy the exciting change to your vision. Glasses and/or contact lenses are now a thing of the past. However, follow-up appointments and exams are important in assessing the success of the procedure and to check for any possible infections. The first of your LASIK post-op exams should be scheduled for a time within 24 hours of your surgery. This first appointment and subsequent follow up appointments, is important so that the doctor can see how well your eyes are healing, and, as stated previously, to check to be sure there is no infection.
LASIK post-op exams are necessary, even if your eyes are feeling great after the surgery. Often times, infections or problems are not at first noticeable to the patient, and are only recognizable later, when the problem is much worse. This is why it is imperative that you make and keep your LASIK post-op exam appointments.
Our experienced team can provide you with your LASIK post-op exams and keep track of the progress of your eyes, without the same cost that would be required if you followed up with your ophthalmologist. We work with your ophthalmologist on your follow-up care and can provide all of your LASIK post-op exams. We will look to see that your eyes are healing at a proper speed, check for infection, assess the level of dryness, prescribe you any additionally needed moistening drops, and communicate with you and your surgeon as to the success of your surgery.
In future follow-up exams, we will assess the continued success of the surgery and give you regular eye exams to see how well it holds. If there are any problems, we will be sure to get you the care you need, so you will be well on your way to continued, spectacular vision. For LASIK post-op exams in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, we provide professional follow-up and continued care.
