LASIK can correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism – decreasing or totally eliminating your need for glasses or contact lenses. This laser eye surgery is a game-changer for many people – improving vision and quality of life! In fact, you may feel so amazing you figure there’s no need to ever have another eye exam.
Wrong. Just because you’re seeing clearly, it doesn’t mean your eyes are healthy. To preserve your new sharp vision for as long as possible, annual comprehensive eye exams are essential. Safeguard your sight with regular eye exams at Eyeworks – we have offices conveniently located to serve you in Ft. Worth, Southlake, and Downtown, Texas.
What eye problems could I have?
A yearly comprehensive eye exam checks for a range of eye diseases, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. Although LASIK doesn’t raise your risk of these diseases, it also doesn’t lower it. So your eye exam is just as important after laser eye surgery as it was before. Early detection and management of these conditions goes far towards the lasting health of your vision.
Also, our eye doctor will inspect for conditions such as dry eye syndrome, which can cause blurred vision and many painful symptoms. Because dry eye is a possible side effect of LASIK, this is particularly important.
Will my vision change after refractive laser surgery?
Eyes change as you age, and even if LASIK was able to give you 20/20 vision – once you get older, you may experience minor refractive changes and/or need reading glasses for presbyopia after age 40. During your eye exam in Ft. Worth, Southlake, and Downtown, Texas, we’ll evaluate your vision to make sure you are seeing as clearly as possible for both near and distance.
