LASIK Consultation Q & A

What’s involved in a LASIK consultation?

Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a procedure that uses advanced laser energy to correct refractive errors:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism

LASIK surgery is a safe and effective treatment to reduce your reliance on glasses and contact lenses; however, it’s not a solution for everyone.

While Dr. Ebrahim doesn’t offer LASIK procedures on-site, she can do your initial evaluation to determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of refractive eye surgery. She reviews your medical history to ensure you can tolerate the procedure and evaluates your overall eye health and vision prior to LASIK surgery.

Additionally, Dr. Ebrahim offers post-surgery follow-up care to monitor your healing process and ensure your visual clarity in the weeks and months after treatment.

What can I expect before and after LASIK surgery?

To prepare you for LASIK surgery, Dr. Ebrahim offers a comprehensive eye and health exam at D Vision Eyecare. She co-manages your care with your preferred LASIK surgeon and can even recommend a provider if needed.

After LASIK surgery, Dr. Ebrahim offers post-surgery checkups to assess how well your eye is healing. In the event you still need to wear contacts or glasses to enjoy perfect vision, which is a possibility in some patients, Dr. Ebrahim offers examinations to determine which type of lens or prescription-strength is right for you.

You can also receive customized care for any side effects that you experience due to LASIK surgery, such as chronic dry eye. Dr. Ebrahim may recommend lubricating eye drops to reduce irritation and discomfort.

How long do the results of LASIK last?

The clearer vision you achieve with LASIK surgery can last for years. However, as you age and your eyes continue to change, you may eventually need reading glasses to see up close or prescription glasses for night driving.

Dr. Ebrahim can recommend the right strength for reading glasses or evaluate your prescription for glasses when you need to improve your vision.
