Imagine waking up, opening your eyes, and seeing clearly. Imagine not wondering where you left your glasses or having to remember to order more contact lenses. This could be your life.
When you visit Coastside Eye Care for a laser eye surgery consultation, we will first do a thorough eye exam to ensure that you are a good candidate for refractive surgery. We assess the thickness of your cornea, your prescription, and the overall health of your eyes. From there, we can decide which procedure is right for you.
It is reasonable to have reservations about laser eye surgery, but the statistics speak for themselves. There are thousands of these procedures in the US alone and 95% of these surgeries are successful. The few complications are typically mild, including dry eye, blurry vision or temporary discomfort. If you have any concerns at all, do not hesitate to discuss them with us.
After our consultation, we will help you pick an eye surgeon in the Half Moon Bay area. We will be with you for your pre- and post-operative care, ensuring the process is as stress-free as possible. If at any time you have questions, or would just like to talk to one of us at Coastside, we are here for you.
Regardless of the surgery, you plan to undergo, laser eye surgery is quick and painless. You will remain awake while a laser makes a small incision in your cornea, creating a flap. Then the surgeon uses that same laser to reshape your cornea before placing the flap back in place to heal. From start to finish, this surgery only takes between 10 and 15 minutes per eye.
Within a week or so you should be seeing well enough, but it will take 2 to 3 months for your full acuity to return. We will schedule several follow-up appointments with you to make sure things are healing as they should and that you are not experiencing any adverse effects.
