Support Throughout the Surgery Process

While corrective lenses can help you see better, not everyone wants to rely on them forever. Laser eye surgery may be right for you if you want to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses.

Our team is here to support you, from pre- to post-surgery. Visit one of our locations, and we can determine your eligibility for laser eye surgery.

Laser Eye Surgery Co-Management

Laser eye surgery is a way to correct refractive errors without needing corrective eyewear like glasses or contact lenses. Your surgeon uses a specialized laser to reshape your cornea, helping you see more clearly. While we don’t perform surgeries at Family Vision Care, we co-manage your care throughout your surgery. 

Our role in your journey to better sight is pre-and post-operative care. We offer surgical consultations where we conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine your eligibility for surgery and explain the benefits and risks of the different options available. 

We refer you to a trusted surgeon who completes your surgery, but our support continues after your procedure. We co-manage your recovery with your surgeon, providing follow-up appointments where we ensure your eyes are healing well.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Various types of laser eye surgery exist today, helping you lower your reliance on corrective lenses. At Family Vision Care, we offer consultations for LASIK and PRK surgery.

LASIK

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a popular laser eye surgery for correcting vision problems. Your surgeon cuts a small flap into the cornea to access its inner layers before removing precise amounts of corneal tissue with a specialized laser. After reshaping the cornea, they return the flap to its original position, where it heals without stitches.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is similar to LASIK. However, your surgeon uses a different technique to access the corneal tissue.

They remove the entire outer layer of the cornea, known as the epithelium, instead of cutting a flap into the eye’s surface. After reshaping the cornea, your surgeon places a contact lens bandage to help protect the eye as it heals.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Laser Eye Surgery?

While laser eye surgery can be beneficial for many patients, not everyone is eligible. We’ll discuss your eligibility for surgery during your consultation, but a good candidate will generally meet the following requirements

  • 18 years of age or older
  • A suitable eyeglass prescription
  • No history of findings of active corneal disease
  • No significant dry eye
  • No significant eye problems
  • Not currently pregnant or nursing
  • Stable prescription for at least 2 years
  • Stable vision for the past year
