If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK. Dr. Ritesh Patel offers pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures.
Evaluation and Referral
LASIK surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At See & Be Seen Eyecare, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Patel performs a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables us to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Patel has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery centre we work with on an ongoing basis. The centre will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the centre regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Toronto office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Dr. Patel is experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
