Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

Laser eye surgery is an effective and safe solution for patients seeking to correct their vision permanently and eliminating their dependence on eyeglasses and contact lenses. It can be used to treat ocular issues such as:

  • Myopia (Nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

Advantages of Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a relatively quick (15-30 minute) procedure with a low risk of complication. Many patients have discovered a significant improvement in the quality of their life following laser eye surgery as it has many benefits, including:

  • Instant results
  • Painless procedure
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Eliminates dependency on eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Allows you to engage in new activities and career opportunities

However, before choosing to have laser eye correction surgery, you must determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate. At Sunridge Eye Clinic, we are able to help you determine your candidacy through:

  • A comprehensive eye exam
  • A laser surgery consultation

Comprehensive Eye Exam

During the full eye-exam, one of our qualified optometrists will thoroughly examine the interior of your eye. This is to:

  • Determine your eyeglass prescription
  • Evaluate the health of your eye
  • Determine whether or not you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery

Pre-Surgery Consultation

During the pre-op consultation, additional measurements of your eyes will be taken to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. Other tests will include:

  • Wavefront measurements
  • Analysis of your tear film to avoid dryness-related complications
  • A dominant eye test
  • Close inspection of your eyelids

During this consultation, our optometrists will fully explain the cost of the laser surgery and discuss your expectations for the surgical outcome as well as its specific risks and benefits.

Factors Affecting Laser Eye Surgery Candidacy

You may not be eligible for corrective eye surgery if:

  • You are younger than 18 years old
  • You are pregnant
  • You suffer from uncontrolled diabetes
  • You have an autoimmune disease
  • You suffer from long-term eye conditions such as keratoconus and glaucoma

If we determine that you are not an ideal candidate for laser eye surgery, our optometrists will discuss alternative corrective solutions to keep your vision clear and comfortable.
