Consultation & Co-Management
LASIK or Refractive Surgery Consulting and Co-Management, Keene, NH
If you’re considering LASIK surgery, the first step is to get a LASIK and refractive eye surgery consultation. At New England EyeWorks in Keene, New Hampshire, we offer LASIK eye surgery consultations as well as post-operative care. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options and determine if refractive eye surgery is the best option for you.
What is refractive eye surgery?
There are a few types of refractive eye surgeries, but the most well-known is LASIK surgery. LASIK eye surgery can effectively treat refractive eye conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Many people opt for LASIK when they want to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK surgery is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that involves using a laser and a small blade to reshape the cornea. Like any medical procedure, LASIK surgery has potential side effects. However, side effects are usually mild and go away on their own.
Your refractive eye surgery consultation
During a consultation, our eye doctor will review your medical history, assess your vision and eye health, and take several measurements of your eye shape and size. They will also discuss the risks and benefits of LASIK and what to expect during recovery. If you are an ideal candidate for refractive eye surgery, we will refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist for continued treatment.
