Laser Eye Surgery Co-Management
Our doctors will assess your eyes to see if you are a candidate for LASIK. Healthy eyes with adequate corneal thickness would be required since tissues from the cornea will be removed in order to reshape the eye. The ideal candidate will be referred to an ophthalmologist for the surgery. After the surgery with the ophthalmologist is performed, we will then schedule you back in for a post-operative surgery follow up appointment with our doctors as part of our refractive surgery co-management program.
