LASIK Co-Management

At McDonald Optical, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our doctors offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.   At McDonald Optical in Iowa City, we’ll do our best to help guide you through this process, so call today and schedule a LASIK co-management appointment with one of our expert optometrists.

Evaluation and Referral

LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At McDonald Optical, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. The doctors perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.

Once the doctors have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to a trusted LASIK surgery center. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.

Post-Operative Care

Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Iowa City office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended each year to determine the long-term results of your procedure and monitor your eye health. Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call 319-337-4995 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.

Advantages of LASIK

If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
