LASIK Enhancements

Posted By Key-Whitman Eye Center || 30-Jan-2012

optilasik_machine (1)It is no secret that LASIK eye surgery is a life-changing procedure. And it shouldn’t be a secret that in some cases, additional enhancements are needed in order for the patient to receive optimal vision correction.

In most cases, patients can expect great results even if additional enhancements are needed. According to the Eye Surgery Education Council founded by members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, a study published in 2008 found that more than 95 percent of the 16 million LASIK patients were pleased with their vision after the surgery.

One of the main causes that leads to follow-up LASIK enhancements is unsatisfactory results. Every case is different as you might assume and for some, enhancements are a necessary stop on their path to optimum results. Key-Whitman addresses some of your LASIK questions here.

There are a number of factors to consider when assessing your visual satisfaction after LASIK. The health and characteristics of your corneas, your age, and your overall expectations can all affect how pleased you are with the outcome of the procedure. Nearsitedness, farsitedness, astigmatism, and the strength of your prescription are also factos to consider, along with the amount of tears you produce if dry eye occurs after LASIK.

Luckily, Key-Whitman Eye Center offers affordable packages with great value for an array of LASIK procedures with programs to get you where you want to be with your vision. Packages are available for both bilateral and per-eye procedures. The four packages offered by Key-Whitman range from Advantage to Budget, all including complimentary follow-up visits, Allegretto Wave Eye-Q OptiLASIK, Intralase Femtosecond Technology (all-laser and blade-free) and payment plans (includes interest-free plans and extended plans). Enhancements are also included in most of the LASIK packages at Key-Whitman.
