LASIK is the most common refractive eye surgery performed today. It is used to correct a number of ocular conditions, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Bergen Optometry is pleased to offer LASIK co-management as part of its extensive line of advanced vision care services.
LASIK involves the use of a laser to reshape the cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK surgery provides a convenient and permanent alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Best of all, the LASIK procedure is quick, and painless, and offers fast, dramatic, and lasting results. Most patients report seeing 20/20 within just 24 hours of undergoing the procedure. LASIK is performed as an outpatient procedure at a special optical surgery center.
Postoperative care is typically performed by an eye doctor other than your LASIK surgeon. This is referred to as LASIK co-management. Bergen Optometry is happy to provide this care at our office through a co-management agreement with your surgeon. Feel free to contact us for more information.
