Evaluation and Referrals for LASIK
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 the Eye Center of Virginia, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctors perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important in determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once we have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
