Correcting Your Vision with Precision
To discover if you’re a candidate for laser eye surgery, please book a consultation with your eye doctor. Our team at Los Gatos Vision Center offers detail-oriented consultations for laser eye surgery and works with a network of experienced ophthalmologists to carry out all approved procedures.
What Is a Laser Eye Surgery Consultation?
Your laser eye surgery consultation is intended to gather important data to help us determine whether this procedure could serve your needs. Some of our consideration may include:
- The thickness of your cornea.
- The stability of your prescription.
- The type of vision problem you want to correct and how severe it is.
- Whether anything in your personal or family medical history could rule out laser eye surgery as a practical choice for you.
If you’re a good candidate for laser eye surgery, we’ll discuss the potential outcomes so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to go ahead with your procedure. If you choose to continue, the next step is to connect you with an experienced ophthalmologist who will perform the surgery. We’ll work closely with your ophthalmologist at every step of the process to make sure you have the support you need.
After your surgery, you’ll visit us for follow-up appointments so we can monitor your recovery. Follow-up visits promote better long-term outcomes by reducing your chances of complications.
Common Laser Eye Surgery Procedures
LASIK is the most common laser eye surgery procedure. Your ophthalmologist performs this surgery by making a small flap in your cornea using a special laser. Then they reshape the tissue underneath and replace the flap so it can heal after the operation.
If your cornea is too thin for LASIK, you may benefit from PRK. PRK also involves reshaping the corneal tissue, but instead of making a flap, your ophthalmologist removes the cornea’s outermost layer entirely.
PRK has longer recovery times than LASIK since the removed tissue grows back slowly. But satisfaction rates for PRK are even higher than they are for LASIK.
