Most glasses and contacts-wearers dream of waking up with a 20/20 vision, not relying on external objects for sight. Lasik surgery turns that dream into a reality. Lasik is currently the most effective and popular laser eye surgery for achieving the perfect vision — no wonder it boasts a 99% patient satisfaction rate and a nearly 100% success rate, according to the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery. You may schedule your Lasik consultation in Eastlake at Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry.

About Lasik Surgery

LASIK, short for “laser in-situ keratomileusis,” is used to treat vision problems caused by refractive errors, a condition wherein an error in the shape of the cornea prevents your eyes from bending light correctly. Refractive errors are responsible for the most common vision problems, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (loss of vision with age), and astigmatism.

During the LASIK surgery, the eye surgeon uses laser technology to reshape the cornea to restore optimal vision, treating myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, or astigmatism. LASIK surgery has been in practice for over 20 years — in all that time, it has gone through numerous improvements in techniques. In its current form, LASIK surgery has a nearly 100% success rate with a negligible risk of side effects.

If you’re ready to embrace 20/20 vision, schedule a LASIK consultation in Eastlake today.

The Lasik Consultation

At Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry, a typical Lasik consultation lasts for about two hours. The consultation will involve pupil dilation, so you need to arrange for someone to drive you back home after the consultation. We also ask patients to stop wearing contact lenses about two-three weeks before the appointment because they produce small and unpredictable changes in the shape of the corneas. The following is a step-by-step overview of Lasik consultation in Eastlake.

Eye Exams

The Lasik consultation starts with a comprehensive eye examination. Our doctors administer numerous eye tests to rule out underlying vision problems, health problems, and other contraindications for Lasik surgery.

Medical History

The eye doctor reviews your medical and health history to identify high blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma, lupus, and other possible health concerns that may prevent you from undergoing surgery. Lasik surgery isn’t suitable for patients who are under 18, pregnant, or nursing.

Measurements

The eye doctor measures the inner and outer structures of your eyes to gather key pieces of information that may prove useful to the eye surgeon.

Explanation

Once the tests and measurements are done, it’s your time to learn about the Lasik surgery. The eye doctor will explain how Lasik works, how you should prepare, and what you can expect. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and set realistic expectations for yourself.
