Lasik & Cataract Co-Management
Can’t stand glasses or contact lenses? LASIK (Laser in Situ Keratomileusis) is a refractive surgery that changes the shape of the cornea to correct for myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The procedure involves a highly-specialized laser to cut and reshape your cornea to improve vision.
If you’re interested in LASIK, you can schedule a LASIK consultation with one of our doctors at Optical Edge to find out if LASIK is right for you. During the evaluation, the eye doctor will go over risks and benefits of the procedure, determine any contraindications, evaluate the quality of the front surface of your eyes, and check for stability of your prescription. Once qualified, you will then be referred to a LASIK surgeon to perform the surgical procedure. After the procedure has been completed, our doctors will do a follow-up evaluation with you at regular intervals within the first six months.
During the evaluation of your eye health, the lens is carefully examined for any cataract formation. If the cataract is significant enough to qualify for cataract surgery, our doctors will refer you to a trusted and respected surgeon for surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe and effective procedure. Our doctors will work closely with you to provide you with pre and post cataract surgery care.
