Your First Step to Clear Vision
LASIK or Refractive Surgery Consulting & Co-Management, Tacoma, WA
Are you thinking about getting LASIK eye surgery?
At Family EyeCare Associates in Tacoma, Washington, we can consult with you about LASIK eye surgery, and if this procedure is a good fit for you, we’ll refer you to a trusted surgeon and provide post-operative care. During your consultation, we’ll talk about different treatment options and help you decide if laser eye surgery is the right choice for you.
What is refractive eye surgery?
There are a few types of refractive eye surgeries, but the most well-known one is LASIK surgery. LASIK eye surgery is used to treat refractive eye conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Many people choose it when they no longer want to wear glasses or contact lenses for vision correction.
LASIK surgery is a simple outpatient procedure where they use a laser and a tiny blade to reshape the cornea. Just like any medical procedure, LASIK surgery can have some side effects, but they are usually minor and go away on their own.
Your refractive eye surgery consultation
When you come in for a consultation, we will go over your medical history, check your vision and eye health, and measure your eye shape and size. We’ll also talk to you about the risks and benefits of LASIK, as well as what to expect during recovery. If you’re a good candidate for refractive eye surgery, we’ll refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist in the Tacoma area for further treatment.
When you schedule an appointment, let us know if you’re interested in laser eye surgery! Our team will then include a LASIK consultation as part of your exam.
What happens after LASIK surgery?
After getting LASIK surgery, your eyes will need some time to heal and recover. Our team at Family EyeCare Associates will schedule follow-up visits at our office in Tacoma. During these visits, we will address any concerns you might have and monitor the healing process.
If you’re considering LASIK surgery or refractive eye surgery, reach out to our office today to set up an appointment.
