At Capitol Eye Care Center, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. LASIK eye surgery has been one of the fastest growing types of refractive eye correction. Our doctors offer detailed LASIK evaluations, as well as pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.
Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Capitol Eye Care Center, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctors perform a complete review of your medical history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect the results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once the doctor has performed the evaluation and determined that you are a good candidate for LASIK, we will schedule an appointment for you at LASIK surgery center. The center will perform an advanced diagnostic testing and various surgery options will be discussed with you.
Once we know the date of your surgery, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you at our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following twelve (12) months. After 1 year, annual eye exams are recommended to monitor the long-term results of your procedure.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
