You have probably heard of LASIK, but it’s not the only type of refractive surgery you can get that offers impressive benefits to your eyesight without the potential complications of traditional surgery. Our eye doctor in San Antonio Texas is pleased to provide co-management services to help you in the qualification process, preparing, and recovery.
Among the choices you have when it comes to refractive surgeries, in addition to LASIK, are PRK, Intacs, Crystalens, CK, and VISIAN implantable contact lenses. Each has its own pros and cons, and our eye doctor in San Antonio Texas, as part of our co-management, will go over those with you and help you to determine the one that is ideal for you based on your individual situation. The same surgery that is perfect for one person may not be so for another, after all. First off, you will be examined in order to find out which of the available refractive surgeries you are eligible for. It is then that the advantages and disadvantages can be discussed. You will have the chance to ask any questions that you have, including about recovery time, odds of success, and what it will mean for your vision as you move forward. In all cases, no matter which type of refractive surgery you decide on, the goal is to improve your vision sufficiently so that you will either not have to rely on your glasses or contact lenses so much, or possibly be able to rid yourself of them entirely. Our eye doctor in San Antonio Texas will also be available to do an examination after your surgery has been completed and you’re enjoying the improved vision it has provided. It is essential that your progress is checked and to ensure that there are no complications or side-effects that have to be addressed.
