At Livermore Optometry Group, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.
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, astigmatism, hyperopia and other eye conditions. At Livermore Optometry Group, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our optometrist performs 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. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once the optometrist has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to an ophthalmologist specializing in LASIK and the anterior (front) part of the eye. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (925) 447-3883 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery date is scheduled, we will make follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will see Livermore Optometry the day after and then one week after your surgery. The post-operational follow ups continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call (925) 447-3883 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
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.
