The Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea with rapid recovery. Our office has invested in the necessary technology to determine if you are a lasik candidate. We perform 5 Lasik specific diagnostic tests and will make recommendations as to which refractive surgery would give you the best results. We have co-managed thousands of lasik patients since 1994.
The "Wow!" effect of Lasik is the very rapid recovery of vision and the decreased level of discomfort post-operatively. You hear from people that they did not feel anything, and could see well the very first day. Most people have functional vision in 24-48 hours, although this is true in some cases, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery, continues to improve for some weeks, even months. Everyones eyes are different. Even though you may have had a friend who has had LASIK, it does not mean it is right for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, we are currently co-managing with the areas top lasik surgeon, with all pre-op and post-op visits in our Conroe office. For many of you who are long-term contact lens wearers our pre-operative input can make the difference between an excellent result and a mediocre one. Post-operatively we can monitor your eyes, and taper medications to arrive at the best possible result.
