What is LASIK?
Modern LASIK is an all-laser method of vision correction. Your doctor uses a femtosecond laser to create the corneal flap that will allow access to alter the shape of the cornea. All-laser technology with the femtosecond laser is far more precise than using a mechanical blade, and is highly customizable to each eye of every unique patient.
Is LASIK Right For Me?
- Are you having trouble with distance vision?
- Are you having difficulty reading or seeing well at night?
- Do you have depth perception issues?
- Do you have an astigmatism?
What’s It Like To Have LASIK?
Schedule a Consultation
At a time that’s convenient for you, a Kameen ophthalmologist will meet with you to discuss the changes in your vision and help you understand available options. The consultation and diagnostic testing are free, and certainly does not obligate you to any future service. We are able to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. You will have an opportunity to schedule your procedure at this appointment. The doctor performing your consultation will be the same doctor performing your LASIK procedure.
Arrive at the Kameen Office for LASIK
After being greeted by the staff, you are met by the doctor who will be performing your LASIK procedure. After a final diagnostic exam, the lasers are set with your exact prescription. You enter the laser suite for the procedure, which lasts about 15-20 min.
Travel Home for Recovery
After surgery, you must have a friend or family member provide your transportation home. You will experience improved vision right away, but we recommend not reading, driving, or using a computer for the rest of the day. After a good night’s sleep you can return to work the next day.
Come Back the Next Day for a Post-Op Checkup
It is important that you meet with your ophthalmologist the day after your LASIK. We will confirm that your eyes are healthy and clear you for normal activity.
