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.
