If you are thinking about having LASIK surgery so you no longer require prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses to see clearly, you will first want to have a LASIK or laser vision correction evaluation and management. At our vision practice, Stanhope Eye Associates, you can receive this important Stanhope LASIK pre-surgical evaluation from one of our optometrists, just one of whom is Dr. Elena Martinez.
We work with many local Stanhope LASIK surgeons to ensure that patients have the best results from their LASIK surgery. We offer pre-operative and post-operative care for patients who are thinking about, and do receive laser vision correction. LASIK surgery is considered to be one of the safest eye surgeries performed today. However, this is only the case if you are a good candidate for the procedure. You will need to have a pre-surgical evaluation so that we can determine that you are an excellent candidate for the procedure. When patients are not good candidates for the procedure, they may not receive the results they want from LASIK surgery; sometimes vision can even become worse. For this reason, eye surgeons insist that patients now have pre-surgical evaluations. When you come to our vision practice for your pre-surgical exam, we will make sure that you are a good candidate for refractive surgery. We will let you know which surgical options are best for you and also evaluate your vision goals. We will also review your eye health and perform a complete vision exam. It is important that you are over age 18 to qualify for LASIK surgery. You will also not want to have had any prescription lens changes over the past year or two. Once you are determined to be a good candidate for the procedure, our optometrist can even recommend an excellent eye surgeon for you. We will work closely with your eye surgeon to ensure the very best post-operative follow-up care.
