LASER EYE SURGERY CO-MANAGEMENT
At False Creek Eye Care, we offer pre- and post-operative care for patients considering LASIK or PRK eye surgery in Vancouver and its surrounding cities.
Our optometrists will perform a thorough examination of your vision and eye health. We will review your history to determine if your prescription is stable enough for surgery. We will assess your corneal health to determine whether you are a suitable candidate. We will initiate a dry eye treatment for those with clinical symptoms to reduce post-surgery complications. For patients with presbyopia, we will discuss visual outcomes and consider options to mitigate the need for reading glasses after laser eye surgery.
We will gather keratometry, pachymetry and post-cycloplegic refraction and forward all the results to your laser refractive surgeon for a comprehensive work-up.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups 2-4 weeks after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following 9-12 months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure.
