Do you have to reach for your eyeglasses the first thing when you get up in the morning in order to see clearly? If so, you may be thinking about having LASIK laser vision correction. Our optometrist, Dr. Monty Smick, can meet with you at our Vision Arts Eyecare Center and provide you with a pre-surgical exam for laser surgery for eyes Spokane, and follow it with excellent post-operative care.
LASIK laser vision correction is considered to be one of the safest and most effective eye surgeries available today. However, this is only true if your eyes are well-suited for the procedure. For this reason, eye surgeons will require that patients have gone through a pre-surgery exam for laser surgery for eyes Spokane. This is very important, because if patients who are not well-qualified have this surgery, not only may their vision not improve from the surgery, but their vision can even be made worse. At our eye care practice we offer pre and post-operative care for refractive LASIK surgery. Our optometrist will carefully evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure, by examining your overall eye and corneal health. During the exam, our optometrist will ask you several questions about your overall medical condition and provide you with a complete vision exam. It is important that you have not had any prescription lens changes over the past year or two, and that you are over age 18. Our optometrist will also check your corneal health to make sure it is thick enough and healthy enough for the procedure. This is of particular importance because LASIK surgery is made through a tiny incision in the cornea. At our vision practice, we will also provide postoperative care for one complete year following the surgery. You will also have a comprehensive eye exam at the end of the first year.
