Part One Of Three Detailing The Steps Of LASIK Vision Correction
LASIK vision correction is a surgical procedure we have performed more than 10,000 times at Campbell Cunningham Laser Center. The procedure itself is usually completed in a matter of minutes, and most patients have returned to their normal activities the next day. There are three key segments to any LASIK procedure: The Free Consultation, The Pre-Operative Exam, and The LASIK procedure itself.
The first step in LASIK vision correction in East Tennessee is to schedule a Free Consultation with the experts at the Campbell Cunningham Laser Center. During this appointment, our staff will work with you to see if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, and they will provide you with the information you need about LASIK so that you can make your own decision about whether or not LASIK is the right choice for you.
We start by taking a reading of the prescription in your glasses or contacts. This quickly allows us to assess whether or not you are within the range of prescription that LASIK can treat. Next, we will perform a routine corneal topography map to determine the thickness of the cornea. Both tests will help us learn about the makeup of your individual eye and determine if LASIK is right for you.
Keep in mind that the technology associated with the LASIK procedure has continually improved since LASIK was introduced, and more people than ever can take advantage of LASIK vision correction. If you were evaluated for LASIK several years ago but found that you weren’t a suitable candidate, it may be worth checking again.
Next, our experts will explain the entire procedure from pre-operative exam through to the surgery and follow-up visits. We encourage you to ask questions–in fact, we recommend you research LASIK on your own before coming in for your consultation, and write down any questions you may have, even very technical ones. We’ll do our best to answer any question you may have. Our goal is to make you totally comfortable with your decision about LASIK.
Then we provide a tour of our facility and our on-site laser center so you can see firsthand how the LASIK procedure is performed.
If you are interested in LASIK vision correction at this point, our staff will also make sure that you know about the variety of financing options that Campbell Cunningham Laser Center can provide, including payment plans up to 24 months same as cash.
