LASIK Consultation & Co-Management, Northport, AL
LASIK surgery can be a life-changing experience, allowing you to see the world clearly without the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, before you decide to undergo LASIK, you need to make sure you’re a suitable candidate and have a clear understanding of the process.

What is refractive eye surgery?
There are several types of refractive eye surgeries, but the most well-known is LASIK surgery. LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a procedure that fixes common vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It reshapes your cornea so that light can focus correctly on your retina, providing you with clear vision. Many people who get LASIK achieve 20/20 vision or better!
Your refractive eye surgery consultation
The consultation process is a critical step in determining whether LASIK surgery is right for you. During the consultation, our eye doctor will examine your eyes, take detailed measurements, and ask about your general health as well as your eye history. They will also discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure. If they determine that you’re a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery, they will refer you to a skilled ophthalmologist in the area.
What happens after LASIK surgery?
Following LASIK surgery, your body needs time to heal and recover. We offer post-operative care for LASIK and refractive eye surgery at our eye clinics in Northport, Reform, and Greensboro. We’ll schedule follow-up visits to monitor your recovery and improving vision. It’s normal to experience some temporary side effects after LASIK surgery, such as dry eye and minor irritation, and we can provide expert guidance to minimize their severity.
