If you are thinking about having LASIK vision correction, you should visit us at Visual Expressions Optometry. At our practice, you can visit with one of our top-notch optometrists who are Dr. Selin Khayatan and Dr. Mei Lee-Fleming. Dr. Khayatan works very closely with our Additional Info, and offers preoperative and postoperative care for LASIK and cataract patients.
If you are wanting to have LASIK surgery so that you will not need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses any longer, you should first meet with our optometrist. She will provide you with a preoperative LASIK exam to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. She will also be able to refer you to one of our Additional Info so that you will be sure to have excellent surgical care. It is very important that patients who have LASIK surgery are well-qualified for the procedure. Although LASIK surgery is extremely safe and effective for well-qualified patients, this is not the case for patients who are not good candidates for the treatment. If a patient is not a good candidate for LASIK, the surgery may not be effective and can even end up making vision worse. This is why eye surgeons require that patients are prequalified before they have the LASIK procedure performed. During the prequalification exam, our optometrist will ask certain questions of our patient, and then perform a complete eye exam. It is important that the patient is over age 18, and has not had a prescription lens change over the past year or two. Our optometrist will also make sure that your eyes are healthy enough for the procedure, and that the cornea is thick enough for the procedure, as well. Since the surgery is performed through a flap made in the cornea, it is important that the cornea meets certain requirements.
For a prequalification exam for LASIK, and for a referral to one of our Danville best LASIK surgeons, contact us for an appointment.
