LASIK Surgery

LASIK Surgery at The Center for Eye Care and Optical

LASIK (Laser-Associated In-Situ Keratomileusis) stands as one of the most common and advanced vision correction procedures available today. This cutting-edge surgery offers precise results and faster recovery times, making it highly effective in treating a range of vision issues, including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and more. At The Center for Eye Care and Optical, we provide comprehensive LASIK services, from evaluations to post-operative care, all in one convenient location.

Evaluation and Referral:

Our dedicated team of optometrists begins by conducting a thorough evaluation to determine if LASIK is the right choice for you. This evaluation includes:

  • A comprehensive review of your medical history.

  • A thorough assessment of your eye health and vision.

  • A current eye examination to assess your prescription stability and overall eye health.

This comprehensive assessment helps us identify if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery and whether any additional factors need consideration. Our optometrists will also determine if your prescription is stable and if you are in good health for the procedure.

Once your evaluation is complete, and we have established your candidacy for LASIK, we will refer you to one of the most experienced refractive surgeons in the United States, at a top LASIK facility on the island.

Post-Operative Care

After your LASIK surgery is scheduled, we will coordinate your post-operative care right here in our office. Typically, your follow-up appointments will begin the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged intervals over the next six months. After one year, a comprehensive exam is recommended to assess the long-term results of your LASIK procedure. Our team is experienced in providing post-operative care, ensuring that your recovery is as smooth and successful as possible.

Advantages of LASIK

If you have relied on glasses or contact lenses for an extended period, you may be considering LASIK surgery as an alternative. LASIK offers several advantages, including:

  • Improved convenience for sports enthusiasts.

  • Relief for those with allergies aggravated by contact lenses.

  • Enhanced simplicity in daily life without the need for corrective eyewear.
