If you are considering laser eye surgery, contact our team for a consultation. We can evaluate your vision and determine the procedure that works best for your eyesight. Laser eye surgery is not for every prescription, and some conditions can affect your candidacy.
Our knowledgeable staff will answer all your questions about the available procedures and co-manage the process should you opt for laser eye surgery. There are many options to consider, and we work closely with you to ensure you have the most effective treatment.
LASIK Surgery Basics
LASIK is one of the most common procedures used to correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
Approximately 90% of patients achieve 20/20 to 20/40 vision through LASIK surgery. LASIK is the most commonly performed surgery for refractive errors, proving a safe and effective treatment.
Before your surgery, your ophthalmologist will numb the eyes with drops, ensuring a comfortable process. Once the eyes are numbed, the surgeon will make a thin flap in your corneal tissue. The flap is then lifted and folded back. Your cornea is then re-shaped using a pre-programmed laser. When the procedure is complete, your surgeon will fold the flap back into position. The flap heals on its own over time.
The Healing Process
After a LASIK procedure, you may experience a temporary decrease in tear production. Your optometrist may recommend special eye drops to ease discomfort, as your eyes may feel extremely dry.
You may experience issues with your night vision, sensitivity to light, glare, and see halos around bright objects after surgery. The healing process can take up to 3 months, but eventually, your vision will be clear.
The Main Street Optometry team will remain at your side to help co-manage the healing process and arrange routine post-surgery care appointments to monitor your progress.

Significant advances in technology have made laser eye surgery a popular, effective, and safe procedure. Surgery can be a major lifestyle change, and it is essential to consider all your options. We are here to help you make an informed decision.
