Laser a Way to Clear Vision Today!

What can you do to help find the vision you need and stop worrying about these constant prescription changes?

The answer could be in laser eye surgery! But before you can have the operation, you’ll need to first consult with Dr. Denton regarding your eligibility for this procedure. Not everyone can have laser eye surgery, and some surgeries might be a better fit than others.

We can help find the solutions your eyes need, and all you have to do is book an appointment. Please, book yours today!

What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery, or refractive lens surgery, is a group of different procedures that generally help correct refractive errors in your vision, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. However, laser eye surgery, no matter the type you have, does not guarantee 20/20 vision.

Many people find that they still need contact lenses or glasses to achieve the vision they want. Still, laser eye surgery can help reduce the power of these refractive errors and possibly your reliance on eyewear.

But before you’re approved to have surgery, there is a process you’ll follow to help you achieve the best possible outcome from the operation.

Before & After Surgery

Preparing for Laser Eye Surgery

It is vital to have a laser eye surgery consultation with Dr. Denton before having surgery. We can help determine if your eyes are healthy enough and what type of surgery would be best for your eyes. Specific health issues and eye diseases may prohibit you from having the operation.

Once we determine if your eyes can handle surgery, we’ll refer you to an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) to perform the operation and work closely with us throughout the process.

Before you go in for surgery, make sure you:

  • Book a few days off work or school to let your eyes heal.
  • Don’t wear any makeup or alcohol-based colognes, fragrances, or perfumes as these could dry your eyes.
  • Don’t wear contact lenses for at least a couple of days before the surgery.
  • Don’t wear any clothes that can attract dust, dirt, or other airborne particles. These could affect the outcome of the surgery.

Following your surgery, our team will work closely with you and the ophthalmologist to help you through the recovery process. While your eyes heal:

  • We may book a series of follow-up appointments to monitor your eyes.
  • We may prescribe eye drops to help keep your eyes comfortable.
  • We may provide a pair of specialty sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV damage.

Types of Laser Surgery We Consult

LASIK

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) eye surgery occurs when your surgeon creates a small “flap” from the outermost layer of your cornea, known as the epithelium, using a small blade or a femtosecond laser. Folding the flap back, your surgeon will then reshape the inner layer of your corneal stroma with an excimer laser to improve your vision.

Once this process is complete, the flap is placed back in its original position to heal over a few days.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) eye surgery is similar to LASIK eye surgery, but instead of creating a “flap” from the epithelium, this layer is removed entirely. After reshaping your corneal stroma with an excimer laser, your eyes will then heal over several days.
