Before you can opt for the innovative LASIK® eye surgery, you’ll need to schedule a LASIK eye surgery consultation. Dr. Yvonne Weisz provides comprehensive evaluations for her patients to help determine if LASIK is right for you. If you’ve been thinking about taking advantage of this exciting treatment, call or book online to visit the Lifetime Eyecare Optometry team in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
LASIK eye surgery involves the use of state-of-the-art laser technology to correct deterioration and changes in the shape of your corneas, the transparent layer that forms the front of your eye.
Some of the common vision problems LASIK eye surgery can correct are:
LASIK eye surgery corrects and reshapes your cornea to ensure that it can refract, or bend, light to your retina correctly. Reshaping your cornea gives you clear vision.
Before your LASIK eye surgery consultation, you’ll need to stop wearing your contact lenses for two weeks. Contacts can temporarily change the shape of your cornea, and Dr. Weisz needs to evaluate the natural shape of your cornea.
During your consultation, Dr. Weisz will go over your medical history and discuss why you’d like to have LASIK eye surgery.
Dr. Weisz will also conduct a comprehensive eye exam to assess if your eyes are healthy enough for the surgery. Dr. Weisz will test your pupil dilation and eye pressure, confirm your prescription, and measure the thickness and curvature of your corneas.
That's the time for you to ask any questions you might have about the procedure.
You must have realistic goals about what you can achieve with LASIK. Continuing natural eye changes could mean that in the future, even after LASIK, you might require reading glasses or other forms of corrective eyewear.
LASIK isn’t suitable for:
You must be in good eye health to be a candidate, and your prescription must have stayed the same for at least one year before the surgery. To discover more about LASIK from the Lifetime Eyecare Optometry team, call or book an appointment online.
