Lasik Eye Surgery
At Berkely Eye Associates, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. As optometrists, Drs. Joseph and Marilyn Berkely offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery and other refractive procedures.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Berkely Eye Associates, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Drs. Joseph and Marilyn Berkely perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results.
Once we have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we are affiliated with. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our New Castle office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the next year. We are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-op and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
