At Bass Lake Family Eye Care, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our optometrists offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.

Evaluation and Referral

LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) 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 Bass Lake Family Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctors will perform a complete review of your medical 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 our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.

Once our doctors perform the evaluation and determine whether you are a likely candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to one of the LASIK surgery centers we work with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery and payment options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (763) 553-1811 to schedule a consultation.

Post-Operative Care

Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following three to six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. All of our doctors have experience working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call (763) 553-1811 to speak with our knowledgeable staff.

Advantages of LASIK

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 especially for people who play sports, have allergies, or who are just looking for simplicity. To learn more about LASIK and your vision, call Bass Lake Family Eye Care today at (763) 553-1811.
