After LASIK Surgery
After surgery, you may experience:
A mild pain reliever may be taken to help ease irritation and we usually prescribe eye drops to help prevent infection and inflammation. It is important to avoid rubbing your eyes as this may damage your corneal flap.
Your eyesight should dramatically improve within 24 hours of treatment and most patients are able to resume activities with minimal restrictions the next day. Typically, you will attend a follow-up appointment within two days of your procedure so that our team can evaluate your progress. Over the next few months, your vision will continue to improve as your eyes heal.
The improvement to your vision may eliminate the need for corrective eyewear...
Is LASIK safe?
One of the Safest Elective Procedures
"Based upon the research into and clinical experience with LASIK, the rate of complications from LASIK eye surgery is estimated to be less than 1 percent, which makes it one of the safest elective surgical procedures available today."
Understanding LASIK Cost
At Deen-Gross Eye Centers our goal is to offer superior vision care at an affordable price. We offer free LASIK screenings to all patients who are interested in undergoing the procedure. If our doctors do not believe that you are a suitable candidate for LASIK, then you will not be charged for the exam. LASIK laser eye surgery costs about $1,800 per eye. The price includes all pre- and post-operative care for one year as well as any necessary enhancement procedures. We are proud to offer a 10% discount to members of the police force and fire departments as well as to active members of the military.
Is LASIK Right for You?
LASIK laser eye surgery is not for everyone. It is important to consult with an experienced, qualified refractive surgeon if you are considering LASIK. Our doctors in Merrillville and Hobart will perform a thorough examination of your eyes and complete a comprehensive evaluation of your health before determining whether you are a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery.
Before Undergoing Treatment
Once our team has established that you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, there are certain steps that you should take to prepare for surgery. You should stop wearing contacts in the weeks leading up to your LASIK procedure; these corrective lenses change the shape of your cornea, which can interfere with your results. Our doctors need to be able to properly measure the thickness of your cornea and shape of your optical sphere in order to establish an effective plan for the procedure. Evaluating your eye in its natural, disfigured form will allow out team to properly measure the corneal tissue which lowers your risk for complications during surgery.
Before having LASIK laser eye surgery, you should arrange to have someone drive you to and from the medical facility near our office. Our doctors recommend that patients refrain from using lotions, makeup, and perfumes the day before their surgery.
