If you want to experience the best results from LASIK eye surgery, it's vital to see an optometrist for professional pre- and post-surgical care. Optometrists work with eye surgeons to ensure patients recover properly and no complications occur. If you are interested in LASIK, contact our team at Athens Family Vision Clinic for eye surgery co-management.
Our optometrist doesn't provide LASIK eye surgery but can provide you with the initial assessment to see if you qualify. Our practitioner performs comprehensive eye exams on all of our patients. This includes a vision screening and eye health exam. Through these eye exams, we can determine if you qualify for LASIK. For instance, our practitioner will assess you for glaucoma, which could interfere with your results. We'll also check you for macular degeneration, which may also interfere with the results of the procedure.
We can then recommend an experienced ophthalmologist to perform the surgery. We only recommend surgeons we know are reputable and have a long history of successfully performing the surgery. Once you have the surgery, we can continuously monitor you for any side effects and intervene if any problems should occur by contacting the surgeon.
Benefits of LASIK Co-Management
If you have two vision care professionals working together, anytime an issue arises, it can be easily addressed. Therefore, the chances of complications are low. LASIK co-management is beneficial during the initial 48 hours after your LASIK surgery. After the surgery, you will visit us for a follow-up exam where we can evaluate your current eye health and intervene as necessary.
If you have any questions or concerns at any time during the process, we can answer them accurately during this time. Care after your surgery is essential to prevent complications, and when both your surgeon and your eye doctor work together, you can reduce your chances of those problems arising.
