We Can Help You Prepare for & Recover from LASIK
At Dubuque Family Eye Care, we offer LASIK co-management, a professional agreement between an optometrist and a laser eye surgeon. While we don’t perform your surgery, we handle pre and post-operative care.
We can determine your eligibility for laser eye surgery before referring you to a trusted surgeon. After your surgery is complete, we can help you recover. We’re here to support you through your laser eye surgery journey.
What Is LASIK?
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is one of the most well-known laser refractive surgeries. LASIK can reduce the need for corrective eyewear by treating refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It’s a fast and well-tolerated surgery, typically completed in around 30 minutes.
The LASIK process involves cutting a flap in the eye’s surface to access the inner cornea. Your surgeon then uses a programmed laser to reshape the cornea by removing precise amounts of tissue. After reshaping the cornea, your surgeon places the cut flap into its original position, where it heals without stitches.
While LASIK is a beneficial surgery, it isn’t for everyone. We will determine your eligibility for surgery during your consultation, but some common reasons someone may be ineligible for LASIK include:
- Certain eye health conditions
- Extreme hyperopia, myopia, or astigmatism
- Underlying health conditions
- Unstable refractive errors
