Here at El Paso EyeCare, we’re a full-service optical practice. And as part of that, we happily provide co-management of LASIK and other refractive surgeries. We understand that any procedure is one that requires serious consideration, even when they’re done with lasers. Before having Fort Bliss eye surgery, let our optometrist offer expert guidance to help point you in the right direction.

Refractive surgeries, including but not limited to LASIK, have many exciting benefits. They provide permanent correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping your corneas so that light travels from them to your retinas to reach closer to the center instead of the front, back, or unevenly in more than one direction. Certainly, you can continue to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, but Fort Bliss eye surgery will make it so that you can rely far less on them, and in the best case scenario, dispense with corrective lenses entirely, all while enjoying considerably sharper and clearer vision at all distances. Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK, but there are other refractive surgeries that provide similar results. Do you qualify for one of them? That’s a big part of our co-management services. You will have a thorough examination, and be able to have all of your questions answered. Our goal is to make sure that if you do have Fort Bliss eye surgery, that you are 100% prepared for it. The success rate of such procedures are impressively high, which means you can be confident of getting the outcome you want. And there are no bandages or stitches involved. Healing and recovery are very fast. Most people start seeing better by the next day, or even later the same day.

Why settle for less than the best vision you can have? Schedule an appointment at our office right now and take advantage of our co-management services.

There are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting your eye’s focusing ability, and this is primarily done by reshaping the cornea. If you have a refractive error, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia, and if you want to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses and are free of eye disease, then Fort Bliss eye surgery may be for you.

Refractive eye surgery is a method for correcting or improving your vision. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK, where a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Our doctors at El Paso EyeCare will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Refractive 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 Fort bliss eye surgery. If after the pre-operative evaluation, the decision is made to proceed with surgery, your information will be forwarded to the surgeon, and a consult with a surgeon will be scheduled. Post-operative management will be provided by our doctors, and includes multiple visits over a period from the date of surgery to include medical evaluation and management of the vision and corneal healing. Evaluation of any additional needs such as reading glasses, sunglasses, or enhancement laser procedures is also included.

In addition to counseling on refractive surgery options, our evaluation process also includes eye dominancy testing, review of eye history and refractive stability, medical evaluation of the cornea and eye, and current refraction status. So if you desire clear, comfortable vision and want to decrease your dependence on your prescription frames or contact lenses, then it’s time you schedule a pre-operative evaluation to determine if you are candidate for this type of Fort Bliss eye surgery.
