Why a Co-Manager for Laser Surgery?

Are you considering corrective eye surgery, such as LASIK or PRK?

By receiving pre-operative and post-operative care from your optometrist (rather than from the eye surgeon) you get the following benefits:

  • An objective evaluation as to whether the architecture of your eye makes you an appropriate candidate for laser surgery
  • Someone who will candidly discuss risks and benefits with you, assess your situation and help you make an informed decision
  • Someone who knows you and will advocate for your specific needs to the surgeon
  • Someone who can advocate for you to the eye surgeon if results are not entirely as desired, or if there is regression
  • Someone who will help you develop the best approach to post-surgery vision, such as whether or not to use reading glasses, etc.
  • Less expensive pre-operative and post-operative treatment in most cases
