If you are thinking about LASIK eye surgery in Herndon, VA, you are in the right place! Visual Health Doctors of Optometry offer LASIK surgery. 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 coordinate your LASIK procedure with a trusted local eye surgeon, as well as provide the necessary pre-operative and post-operative eye exams.
LASIK surgery is a corrective vision surgery for patients who want to improve their vision and lower their reliance on eyeglasses or contacts. The surgery is performed by an experienced eye surgeon to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by surgically altering the cornea. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a small flap of tissue in the outer part of the cornea and uses 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.
Not everyone is a candidate for LASIK surgery. Before undergoing surgery, our knowledgeable eye doctor will screen your eyes for conditions such as cataracts or retinal problems that can affect your eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. Our doctor will sit down with you to discuss any concerns and expectations regarding your results and answer all 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 your 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 at that time so we can monitor the healing process and evaluate your final outcome.
