What Is LASIK Surgery?
LASIK, short for "laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis," is a refractive surgery to correct vision problems. It offers advantages like minimal post-operative discomfort and rapid visual improvement. During LASIK, a laser creates a thin flap in the cornea, which is then folded back. The surgeon then removes small amounts of corneal tissue, reshaping it to improve its ability to focus light onto the retina. LASIK can effectively treat nearsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism, providing clear vision and reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses.
Expert Guidance for Your LASIK or Refractive Surgery
At Bethesda Vision Care, we offer comprehensive LASIK and refractive surgery co-management services to help you achieve clear vision. We have established close partnerships with various local laser centers, specifically The Laser Eye Center (TLC) in Rockville, where renowned golfer Tiger Woods underwent his LASIK procedure.
During your in-office consultation, our Bethesda optometrists will carefully evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals. Based on this assessment, we will determine if you are suitable for LASIK or Photo-Refractive Keratectomy (PRK), two popular refractive surgery options.
If you are a good candidate for refractive surgery, we will coordinate a pre-surgery consultation with your selected surgeon at one of the reputable local laser centers. Following your surgery, our dedicated team will provide attentive post-operative management, thoroughly monitoring your vision and corneal healing.
While LASIK remains the most popular refractive surgery option, we understand it may not suit everyone. Our commitment is to identify the right procedure tailored to your needs, collaborating with the most skilled surgeons to correct your vision.
