Are you considering LASIK eye surgery in Springfield, VA? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! When you come into any of our convenient locations for your eye exam, we can evaluate your eyes to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of vision correction. Our experts will then coordinate your LASIK procedure with a local eye surgeon, as well as provide the necessary preoperative and postoperative eye exams.
LASIK surgery is performed by an experienced eye surgeon to improve your vision and lower your reliance on eyeglasses or contacts. The LASIK surgeon corrects 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 uses a laser to remove a tiny amount of the underlying corneal tissue. The flap then serves as a bandage for your eye as you heal.
Not everyone is able to undergo the LASIK procedure. Before your eye surgery, our knowledgeable eye doctor will screen your eyes for other conditions such as cataracts or retinal conditions that can impact your eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. Our expert will also take the time to discuss any concerns you have about your surgical results and answer any questions you may have. 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. We recommend scheduling your post-operative visit with our office so that we can monitor the healing process and evaluate your final outcome.
