Are you tired of having to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses in order to see clearly? If so, you may be a good candidate for receiving LASIK surgery to permanently correct your vision. At Eyesite, our eye doctor, Dr. Robert C. Messinger, can examine your eyes to see if you are a good candidate for receiving LASIK surgery in Weehawken NJ.
LASIK surgery is a proven and safe surgical treatment for patients who are well-qualified for the procedure. However, if you are not a good candidate for receiving LASIK surgery in Weehawken NJ, and the surgery is provided, you may not have the excellent results you are hoping for, or your vision can even worsen. Our eye doctor can provide you with a LASIK eye exam to make sure you are a good candidate for receiving LASIK surgery, and then provide you with an ophthalmologist who specializes in this treatment, should you prove to be a qualified patient. When you come visit our vision practice for a pre-LASIK eye exam, our eye doctor will examine your eyes and make sure they are healthy enough to receive the LASIK surgery. It is important that your cornea is of a certain thickness, since the surgery does cut a flap of the cornea through which the procedure is performed. It is also important that you are over 18 years of age, and that you have not had an eyeglass lens prescription change in over the last year or two. Our eye doctor will also want to make sure that your eyes are healthy enough for this treatment. LASIK is an extremely popular way for patients to receive permanent correction of low to high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Our eye doctor will also talk to you about different treatment options, so that you are completely informed, and aware of other excellent treatments if there is a problem in your particular case.
At our vision practice, our eye doctor can provide co-management, preoperative testing, postoperative care, and treatment for your LASIK surgery in Weehawken NJ.
