LASIK surgery is used to correct a number of optical conditions, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. For most patients, LASIK surgery provides a permanent alternative to wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. Best of all, LASIK is quick, virtually painless and offers rapid, dramatic results. Most patients report seeing 20/20 within just 24 hours of undergoing the procedure.
While the LASIK procedure is performed by a surgeon, postoperative care may be performed by your family eye doctor. This is referred to as LASIK co-management. Grandview Optometry is happy to provide this care at our office through an agreement with your LASIK surgeon. Feel free to contact us for more information.
SMILE is a laser eye procedure that is an alternative to LASIK. It is used to correct nearsightedness. Similar to LASIK, SMILE is performed by a surgeon as an outpatient procedure and typically produces dramatic results quickly. Once a patient has undergone a SMILE procedure, they can then seek post-operative care with their regular eye doctor. Grandview Optometry is pleased to offer SMILE co-management in cooperation with your surgeon. Contact us for more information.
Refractive lens exchange (RLE), also known as lens replacement or clear lens extraction, may be a better alternative to LASIK and other refractive surgeries for some patients. It is a particularly favorable option for individuals with presbyopia or hyperopia (nearsightedness). RLE replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial one to correct refractive errors and achieve sharper focus, eliminating the need for bifocals or reading glasses.
Similar to other refractive surgical procedures, the team at Grandview Optometry is here to provide post-operative care after the fact. If you plan on having RLE and would like to partner with us for our co-management services, please get in touch!
Cataracts are a common eye condition for which surgery is the primary treatment. Should your eye doctor diagnose cataracts during your routine eye exam, we will refer you to an experienced eye surgeon who can provide cataract surgery as needed. During cataract surgery, the surgeon will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a new, clear intraocular lens.
Grandview Optometry’s team provides cataract co-management services, working in coordination with your eye surgeon following surgery. To schedule an appointment or learn more, contact us today.
Dermatochalsis is a condition in which the skin above the eye sags to the point where it interferes with function of the upper eyelid. Dermatochalsis is very common and typically occurs as part of the natural aging process. The surgical procedure to repair this condition is called blepharoplasty. It can be performed either for cosmetic purposes, or if the skin sags enough to interfere with vision, it may be covered by medical insurance.
If you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty, Grandview Optometry would be happy to refer you to a qualified surgeon to perform the procedure. We’ll also be here to provide your post-operative care once the surgery is complete. For more information on dermatochalsis or the blepharoplasty procedure, contact us.
