If you are thinking about LASIK eye surgery in Fairfax, VA, we have good news. Visual Health Doctors of Optometry can help. Come in for an eye exam and we will evaluate your eyes to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of vision correction. If you are, our eye care team will then coordinate your LASIK procedure with a local eye surgeon, as well as provide the necessary pre-operative and post=operative eye exams.
LASIK surgery is for patients who want to improve their vision and lower their reliance on eyeglasses or contacts. It is performed by an experienced eye surgeon to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by surgically altering the cornea. During the procedure, the surgeon will create a small flap of tissue in the outer part of the cornea and use a laser to remove a tiny amount of the underlying corneal tissue. The flap will then serve as a bandage for your eye as you heal.
The LASIK procedure is not right for everyone. Before undergoing surgery, our knowledgeable eye doctor will screen your eyes for conditions such as cataracts or retinal conditions that can affect your eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. Our specialist will sit down with you to discuss any concerns and expectations about your surgical results and answer any of your questions. If you are cleared to pursue surgery after our pre-operative exam, we will refer you to a local eye surgeon who specializes in LASIK eye surgery.
After LASIK eye surgery, it may take up to a month for your vision to be restored to its final acuity. For that reason, we highly recommend scheduling your post-operative visit with our office so we can effectively monitor the healing process and evaluate your final outcome.
