Getting a Lasik consultation

Getting a Lasik Consultation

If you rely on glasses or contacts to see correctly but are tired of the hassle, you should consider Lasik surgery. This procedure is painless. Your ophthalmologist would use a laser to reshape the cornea to avoid the need for glasses or contacts. If you are thinking about getting Lasik, the first thing that you will need to do is make an appointment for a consultation with an optometrist at Foster Vision in Portland. There are a few reasons why the consultation is essential.

Check the Health of Your Eyes

To be a good candidate for Lasik, your eyes would need to be healthy. If during the consultation your ophthalmologist finds that you have an eye disease such as cataracts, glaucoma, or age-related macular degeneration, you will not be a good candidate for the procedure.

Check Your Prescription 

Before the procedure, your ophthalmologist will need to check your eyeglass prescription. If your prescription doesn't fit in with the recommended prescription parameters, you will not be able to have the procedure done.

Discuss Your Medical History 

Before your doctor books the procedure, they will want to go over your medical history. First, your age will be a factor. Your eyes must be fully mature before you can have the procedure. This occurs between the ages of 18 and 21-years-old. There are other conditions that can make you a poor candidate for the procedure. A few examples include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and other autoimmune conditions.

Get Answers to Your Questions 

If you are like most people, you are going to have questions about the procedure. The time to ask these questions is during the consultation. Your doctor can let you know what to expect before and after the procedure. They will let you know what to expect during the healing time and what you can expect when you have completely healed. Any questions or concerns that you may have about the procedure can be addressed during the consultation.

  • Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!
