Our San Antonio eye doctor will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Refractive Technology. If you have appropriate goals and there are no contraindications for the procedure, we will recommend a pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for refractive surgery. This evaluation includes:
- Counseling on refractive surgery options
- Eye dominancy testing
- Review of eye history and refractive stability
- Medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
- Current Refraction Status including a strong dilation drop called cycloplegia for the most accurate measurements possible. These drops require a 30 minute wait.
If after the pre-operative evaluation, the decision is made to proceed with surgery, your information will be forwarded to the surgeon and a pre surgery consult with a surgeon will be scheduled. Post-operative management will be provided by our doctors at TSO, and includes multiple visits over a period from the date of surgery to include medical evaluation and management of the vision and corneal healing. Evaluation of any additional needs such as reading glasses, sunglasses, or enhancement laser procedures is also included.
