LASIK Co-Management With Urias Eyecare In Midland TX
LASIK surgery represents the state of the art in modern refractive vision correction. Instead of fitting your eyes with lenses that alter the way incoming light enters the eye, the surgeon actually reshapes your corneas to do this job, resulting in lens-free visual clarity. But this surgery must be supported by proper pre-operative preparations and post-operative care if you want to enjoy the best possible results. That's why you need to consult Urias Eyecare, your source for LASIK co-management in Midland TX.
Are You a Good Candidate? Our Optometrist Can Tell You
Not everyone is automatically a good candidate for LASIK surgery. The best candidates for the procedure are at least 18 (this is a requirement) with a vision prescription that has remained relatively stable for 2 or more years. Their eyes are free of complicating factors such as glaucoma, Keratoconus, herpes zoster, cataracts, and other problems. They're also not troubled by autoimmune issues, vascular diseases or diabetes. Last but not least, good candidates understand and accept that there's no guarantee of perfect results.
Our optometrist will perform a detailed eye and vision evaluation while also analyzing your overall health and current degree of refractive error to determine whether you're a good candidate for LASIK. We will also check your eyelid structure, tear film (since LASIK can worsen dry eye), and the thickness of your corneas. If the corneal tissue is too thin, we may recommend an alternative procedure such as PRK. Unlike LASIK, PRK doesn't require sufficiently thick corneas to create a movable flap at the front of the eye.
LASIK Co-Management Surgery Preparations and Follow-up Care
Our team will prepare you for your LASIK surgery by making detailed measurements of your eyes and making sure your refractive prescription is updated. We can also refer you to a skilled eye surgeon and brief you on what to expect from the procedure. The day after your procedure, we will want to see you for a follow-up exam so we can make sure your tissues will heal properly and you're getting the right results for this early stage of recovery. We will then schedule several additional follow-ups after the fourth day, first, month, third month, sixth month, and the first year after surgery so we can guide and monitor your full recuperation.
