Comanaging Your Laser Eye Surgery Procedure

Laser eye surgery can help our patients achieve their vision goals. At Danville Optometric Group, we offer comprehensive pre-surgery consultations and post-operating care for our patients seeking laser vision correction. 

Our team uses extensive testing to determine what laser eye surgery is a good fit for your unique eyes. We offer consultations for patients who are considering Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK), and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE).

We want to be a part of your laser vision correction journey. Contact us to schedule your consultation and get more information on what procedure is right for you.

Understanding Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a vision correction procedure that reshapes the cornea in order to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Laser vision correction is a popular option for patients looking to reduce their reliance on glasses or contact lenses.

During your consultation, our team will conduct testing and a thorough evaluation of your eyes that may include: 

  • Reviewing your refractive surgery options
  • A full medical evaluation of your cornea
  • Eye dominance testing
  • Reviewing your visual history and refractive stability

We’ll walk you through what to expect during the laser vision correction process and determine if your eyes can safely undergo the procedure.

Exploring Your Laser Vision Correction Options

At Danville Optometric Group, our consultation services cover various laser vision correction options. Our goal is to help our patients understand their options and answer any questions or concerns they may have. 

LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK vision correction is a quick, efficient procedure usually completed in 30 minutes or less.

The procedure begins with your surgeon using numbing drops in your eyes. Your surgeon then uses a precision instrument to create a small flap to access the part of the cornea that needs reshaping. Tiny amounts of corneal tissue are removed using the precision instrument.

Once the reshaping process has been completed, your surgeon will carefully place the flap back into place, and the recovery process can begin. Our team will schedule follow-up appointments up to 6 months after surgery to ensure the recovery process is progressing smoothly.

PRK surgery is another form of laser vision correction where your surgeon removes the cornea’s surface layer and reshapes the corneal bed with a precision instrument, similar to LASIK. PRK can be an excellent alternative for patients whose cornea may be too thin to allow LASIK vision correction safely.

The main difference between LASIK and PRK is that PRK surgery involves removing the top layer of the cornea. In contrast, LASIK involves creating a small flap in the cornea and reshaping.

Another difference is the recovery time. PRK recovery can take longer because the outer layer of the cornea needs time to regenerate itself fully.

LASEK eye surgery is a vision correction procedure similar to LASIK and PRK. The procedure involves cutting only as deep as the outer of the cornea, and patients may experience a faster recovery time from LASEK eye surgery as opposed to other laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK.

The LASEK procedure is used to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

The SMILE procedure is a newer type of laser refractive surgery. The procedure involves reshaping the cornea by removing a small lens from the central corneal layer using a precision laser.

Your surgeon extracts the lenticule through 4 small incisions on the corneal surface. SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure that focuses on correcting simple forms of myopia and astigmatism. Patients usually heal over a few days.
