Am I a good candidate for Cataract RLE surgery?
If you have cataracts, this may be a good option for you. However, your overall health may ultimately determine whether this is the best option. Contact us to set up a consultation, where we can provide more information and answer your questions.
How long will laser surgery take?
The surgery itself takes no more than a half hour, but because we provide pre- and post-operative care, you’ll need to set aside a few hours to spend at our facility.
What should I wear?
- Loose, comfortable clothing
- Avoid fleece or any clothing that creates lint
- Avoid jewelry or make-up.
Does laser eye surgery hurt?
No. We use eye drops before your procedure to numb your eyes. You may feel a sensation that we are working on your eye, but you won’t feel pain. After the procedure you may experience some discomfort, but this is temporary and can be managed with eye drops and/or medication.
Are the results of laser eye surgery permanent?
Yes. During surgery, the shape of the cornea is permanently changed to improve your vision. However, age-related changes in vision, such as cataracts and presbyopia (need for bifocals) may still occur.
Are both eyes corrected on the same day?
It is possible to have laser surgery done on both eyes in the same day – in fact, many patients prefer this option. Based on the results of your eye exam and consultation, we can help you determine the option that is best for you.
How soon can I return to my normal schedule after surgery?
You can expect to return to your normal routine within a couple days after surgery. Talk with us for more details regarding how much time you should set aside for rest and recovery.
How do I know if LASIK or PRK is right for me?
Contact us to schedule a consultation. We will discuss your eligibility for either procedure, and answer any questions you may have.
