LASIK Eye Surgery
At Andrew Stone Optometry, we offer comprehensive vision care for each patient. In addition, Dr. Andrew Stone provides pre and post operative care for patients who undergo LASIK surgery and other eye procedures in Columbia, MO. LASIK surgery can help you achieve that goal. Here's how our eye doctor can help you.
LASIK Evaluation and Referral
LASIK surgery uses laser technology to provide precise results and fast recovery. If you've been living with myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, you may benefit from LASIK. In addition, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients who show interest in the procedure.
During your evaluation, Dr. Stone will review your patient history. Our optometrist will also assess your eye and vision. This exam is essential to determine if you're a good candidate for the procedure. In addition, your image must be stable, and you should be in good general health.
If Dr. Stone determines you're a good candidate for surgery, he'll refer you to a LASIK surgery center. The center provides advanced diagnostic testing and will further ensure your eligibility for the procedure. Several surgical options are available. You will talk with your eye doctor and surgeon about the best method to help you see clearly.
After LASIK surgery, you'll follow up with our optometrist at regular appointments. You'll begin these appointments the day after surgery, and continue to see the doctor over the next six months. Then, after one year, you'll have another meeting to ensure your results are lasting.
Why Should You Consider LASIK Surgery?
LASIK has several advantages, such as the procedure will make it easier for you to play sports. Additionally, your quality of life improves. With LASIK, you won't rely on glasses or contact lenses. Instead, you can get clear vision without needing glasses that inconvenience your life.
