LASIK Eye Surgery Consultations at Vision Source D.C.
What is LASIK?
LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is an FDA-approved outpatient procedure that uses the excimer laser to reshape the cornea to correct your vision. LASIK typically takes less than 10 minutes to perform on each eye and is one of the most frequently performed healthcare procedures in North America.
Working with Your Eye Doctor
We co-manage your laser refractive surgery. We proudly partner with TLC Laser Eye Centers!
Some of our patients want to consider laser correction surgery in place of glasses or contacts. We ask you to remove your contacts for about a week – depending on the type of contact. We then perform a complete examination which includes a thorough medical history, refraction, corneal topography, corneal thickness measurements and dilation. We combine that information with a discussion of your motivation for surgery. We discuss expectations of the vision after the surgery - either LASIK or PRK.
If you are a candidate, your second appointment is with the local corneal surgeon where more tests are done. We co-manage with several local surgeons including TLC centers in Virginia and Maryland.
After your procedure, your post op care appointments are done in our office.
If you're a candidate for LASIK or a similar procedure, your eye doctor and a TLC surgeon will offer you a premium vision correction experience built on a team based approach to tailor your eye care to you. Ask your eye doctor today to help you schedule your FREE consultation at TLC.
