Lasik Co-Management Q & A

San Diego Vision Care Optometry

What is LASIK?

LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) is a type of laser surgery that helps correct refractive errors so people with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism can have clearer vision. Millions of people have undergone LASIK with good results; still, LASIK isn't always the best option for all patients. San Diego Vision Care Optometry can help you learn more about LASIK and help you find a LASIK provider who can determine if the procedure would be a good option for you.

How can I tell if I'm a good candidate for LASIK?

The best way to know if LASIK is a good choice for you is to have a complete eye exam to evaluate the shape of your cornea as well as other factors that could influence the success of the procedure.

How can your providers help me prepare for LASIK surgery?

Our providers help patients by explaining the pros and cons of LASIK and other types of refractive surgery so they can make truly informed, confident decisions. Research has shown many patients are more comfortable asking questions and learning about LASIK and other surgeries from their “regular” eye doctor with whom they have an established relationship. The optometrists work closely with each of their patients to help them understand their vision issues and how LASIK may help them see more clearly. Plus, for patients considering LASIK but who haven't selected a surgeon, our doctors can make recommendations for skilled area surgeons.

What type of post-LASIK care does San Diego Vision Care Optometry provide?

After LASIK, followup is essential for ensuring patients experience the best possible visual outcomes. Our doctors provide skilled co-management care, working with your surgeon to understand any issues that need to be watched during follow-up and discussing your specific concerns so you understand the steps you need to take to enable your eye to heal properly. If an issue does arise, they can refer you either back to your surgeon or to another area eye specialist for additional care and treatment.
