There may come a time you want to explore corrective solutions beyond eyeglasses and contact lenses. Laser eye surgery may be the right choice for improving your vision. Surgeries are conducted under the supervision of an ophthalmologist, but your 2020 EyeCare doctors are with you the whole way through.
We partner with Southwest Ohio’s leading eye surgeons to provide a seamless transition from exam room to surgery chair. For patients that want to put away the glasses or stop using contact lenses, we’re here to answer all the questions.
We build long-lasting relationships with our patients and want the people we treat to succeed with all things vision. You can come to us for advice, questions, concerns, and opinions on the best way to proceed with corrective eye surgery. Your ocular health is always our priority, and the next step is connecting you with a trusted surgeon in Southwest Ohio.
A comprehensive eye exam is the first step in the corrective eye surgery process. One of the most important things we check for is the presence of eye diseases that might make you ineligible for laser eye surgery. The earlier we can diagnose an issue, the better for everyone.
We also want to confirm that your eye is no longer changing shape, as this would make surgery more complicated. Once you are considered to have stable vision (a consistent prescription year-over-year), we can consider laser eye surgery as a viable option.
If you qualify as a surgery candidate, we’ll connect you with a respected ophthalmologist in your area. Since we co-manage all our patients’ procedures, we’ll always be available leading up to your big day. Laser eye surgery can be intimidating, but please know that we have the answers you need.
With a success rate of 90%, LASIK has become the most popular laser eye surgery procedure in North America. It’s common for a patient to achieve 20/20 vision following the surgery, although results vary from person to person.
LASIK surgery works by folding back a flap on your cornea and using a precision laser to change the shape of your eye. The surgery can be limited if there is not enough corneal tissue to remove a safe amount. But success rates are extremely high, and LASIK is considered a safe procedure when you are ready.
If LASIK isn’t the best surgery solution for you, we can explore other methods. Depending on your specific eye situation and the ophthalmologist’s opinions, it could make sense to move forward with alternate surgery methods.
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a laser-assisted technology that also changes the shape of the cornea. In this procedure, the top layer of the cornea is completely removed and a precise laser fixes deeper layers of the cornea.
A refractive lens exchange works by replacing the eye’s natural lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). The lens may be replaced to correct refractive errors or to eliminate cataracts.
