Doctor Howes will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, PRK. ICL or Refractive Lens Exchange Technology. If you have appropriate goals and there are no contraindications for the procedure, we will recommend a pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for refractive surgery. This evaluation includes:
- Counseling on refractive surgery options
- Eye dominancy testing
- Review of eye history and refractive stability
- Medical evaluation of the cornea and eye (internal and external ocular health)
- Current Refraction Status
If after the pre-operative evaluation, the decision is made to proceed with surgery, your information will be forwarded to the surgeon, a pre surgery consult with a surgeon will be scheduled. Post-operative management will be provided by either Doctor Howes or at the surgeon's clinic (whichever is more convenient for you) and includes multiple visits over a period of time.
