Experience the Freedom
Laser eye surgery is not for everyone, but we’ll look closely at your prescription and eye health to determine if you’re a candidate. If you want an experienced team to walk you through the consultation and co-manage your recovery, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re longing for a life that’s less reliant on eyeglasses or contact lenses, please give us a call and request a laser surgery consultation.
Laser Eye Surgery Consultations
Our practice provides comprehensive consultations to determine if laser eye surgery will benefit your vision. Patients with refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can usually benefit from laser eye surgery.
During the consultation, our optometrists can determine if any factors will affect your recovery from eye surgery. Some of these factors include:
Once we’ve determined you’re a candidate for surgery, we’ll refer you to one of our trusted ophthalmologists.
LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK is the most commonly performed laser surgery to correct refractive errors.
Before the procedure, your ophthalmologist uses numbing drops to prepare your eyes and make you comfortable. Following this, a small incision is made in the top layer of your cornea to create a thin “flap” that’s folded back to expose the underlying corneal tissue. A preprogrammed laser then reshapes the cornea to your required prescription.
Recovery & Co-Management
Following your surgery, you will be scheduled for routine follow-up appointments to ensure you’re healing well. You can trust that Coast Optometry will stay by your side on your road to recovery.
You can expect a few post-surgery side effects, including:
- Light sensitivity
- Glare or halos around bright light
- Dry eyes
- General discomfort
- Blurry vision
Call us immediately if any of these symptoms escalate.
About 90% of patients achieve 20/20 or 20/40 vision after surgery. But it’s important to know that not every patient achieves perfect vision after laser eye surgery. Some patients will continue to wear glasses or contact lenses.
