Are you thinking about having LASIK surgery or other laser vision correction? If so, you should visit our vision practice, Focus Vision Care, where our Staten Island best eye doctor, Dr. Jyotsna Jain, can provide you with a laser vision correction exam.
Laser vision correction procedures, such as LASIK, can be extremely effective in helping to improve your vision. In fact, when patients get LASIK they generally no longer need to wear prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses in order to see clearly. Many people thoroughly enjoy this since it means they no longer need to reach for glasses the first thing in the morning when they get up in order to be able to see around them. LASIK surgery and other laser vision corrections can be extremely effective as long as they are performed on people who are good candidates for the procedures. However, if a person is not a good candidate, not only will the procedure not be effective, but it can even make a person’s vision worse. This is why eye surgeons generally insist that their patients have a laser vision correction exam before they have laser surgery. This pre-op exam can be performed by our Staten Island best eye doctor. During the exam, our eye doctor will examine your eyes to make sure they are healthy enough for the procedure. For a LASIK exam, our eye doctor will also check the depth of your cornea to make sure that it is thick enough to withstand the surgery. Our eye doctor will also need to determine that you have not had any vision prescription changes over the past year or two. Our eye doctor will also talk about the different treatment options available, and let you know exactly what you should expect from your laser surgery. Our eye doctor will also make sure that the vision correction that you desire can be obtained from the surgical procedure.
