Giving you the best level of vision possible is always the goal of our team at Eye Care of Virginia. Some of our patients can benefit from LASIK, a procedure that may help you to have improved vision. Our optometrist, Dr. Miles Press, can help you find out if this may be the right option for your unique needs.
When you visit our optometrist in Culpeper or King George, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive eye exam and talk to you about all types of treatment that can help improve your vision and safeguard your eye health. LASIK, which stands for laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a type of surgery that offers very fast recovery and incredibly precise results. This eye surgery can offer treatment for several types of common eye conditions including:
If you suffer from one of these conditions, we may recommend you for LASIK. LASIK can help to improve your vision so you may not need to wear prescription glasses or contact lenses any longer or you may see significant improvement in your current prescription. Many people who play sports or who dislike wearing glasses benefit from this procedure right away. However, there are several steps necessary to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Dr. Press offers comprehensive LASIK evaluations in our office. We perform the necessary diagnostic testing and evaluation for you to determine if you are eligible for this surgery. This includes ensuring your overall well enough for surgery and ensuring your vision can improve from this procedure. We want to ensure we minimize any risks possible. We’ll work with you, then, to refer you to a specialist in the area that is a good fit for your needs. If you are considering LASIK surgery, we recommend coming in to see our team first.
We work with many patients who have had LASIK eye surgery and who are ready to get all necessary follow-up care. We will set up the necessary appointments in either our King George or Culpeper office to fit your needs. This evaluation often starts the day after the surgery and will continue as necessary. We often see patients every few weeks or months to ensure proper vision and to ensure your eye health is maintained. After a year, we’ll recommend a full evaluation to check the overall results of the procedure and to determine if any additional care is needed.
