Are you tired of having to reach for eyeglasses or contact lenses the first thing when you get up in the morning? If so, you may be thinking about getting LASIK surgery. Our optometrists, just one of whom is Dr. David Weinberger, can work with your eye surgeon in South Salem to provide you with excellent laser vision correction.
At our vision practice, Cross River Eye Care, our optometrist can help you by providing consultation for and co-management of your LASIK procedure by your eye surgeon in South Salem. As an affiliate with TLC, many patients come to see us for pre-op and post-op LASIK services. LASIK vision correction is considered to be an extremely safe and effective procedure when performed on patients who are qualified. However, if a patient is not well-qualified for LASIK, the procedure may not be helpful, or can even make your vision worse. For this reason, it is necessary that all patients who are having LASIK visiting correction have a pre-op screening exam. During this exam our eye doctor will make sure that you are a good candidate for the surgery as well as talk to you about all the benefits and any drawbacks of the procedure. Our eye doctor will also perform a comprehensive eye exam to make sure that your eyes are healthy enough to undergo the procedure, and to make sure that your cornea is thick enough, as well. Since the surgery is performed through a tiny flap which is cut into the cornea, it is important that the cornea is thick enough to withstand and fully heal from the surgery. Our eye doctor will also make sure that your refractive error is within the range that can be fixed, as well as discuss other possible treatment options with you. Our optometrist will also provide postoperative services to make sure you have an uneventful and complete recovery
