Evaluation And Referral
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in medical 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 eye doctors perform a complete review of your patient history and a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current eye exam is essential in determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if any other factors 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.
When the eye 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. Our optometrists will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
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 one year, a complete exam is recommended each year to determine the long-term results of your procedure and monitor your eye health.
Our eye 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
