    LASIK

    LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), is a type of refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. The procedure takes about five minutes per eye and Siepser patients achieve dramatic improvement in their vision within 24 hours. The Siepser Eyecare team has been successfully performing this surgery for over 20 years and is immensely proud of a 0% infection rate. The experienced and knowledgeable Siepser team walks patients through every step of their vision correction, ensuring they are educated, at ease, and receive the best outcome.

    Top Questions to Ask Your LASIK Doctor

    How do I know I am a good candidate for LASIK surgery?

    Determining whether or not you are a good candidate for LASIK is quite complex. Everyone’s eyes are unique. This is why every candidate needs a thorough examination prior to committing to LASIK surgery. As a part of your consult, your physician should fully explain the current condition of your eyes to include degrees of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism in addition to assessing if there is any presence of dry eye. Your overall eye health and general health also need to be factored into determining if you are a good candidate.

    At Siepser Eyecare, we believe that to provide our patients with the best care, nothing can be “one size fits all”. When a patient schedules a consult with us, we take the time required to fully understand the patient’s health and recommend the appropriate course of treatment.

    How Many Successful LASIK Procedures Have You Performed?

    The key word here is “successful.” Patients need to assess quality over a quantity of procedures a practice has performed. It is good information to know how many procedures practices have performed, but also inquire about infection rates.

    Siepser Eyecare has been performing LASIK surgery for over twenty years and is very proud of our 0% infection rate for all LASIK procedures.

    What Results Can I Expect?

    LASIK surgery can be life changing for ideal candidates resulting in restored vision with less dependency on glasses and contacts. This can be especially freeing for those who play sports or spend a considerable amount of time reading. Your LASIK surgery results are dependent on the unique condition of your eyes.

    Siepser Eyecare performs a full consultation, assessing whether patients are a good candidate for LASIK surgery to ensure their full satisfaction with results.

    If I am Not a Candidate for LASIK Surgery, Do I Have Other Treatment Options?

    Yes! With twenty years of experience, the team at Siepser Eyecare are experts in determining the best course of treatment for your unique eyes. In addition to LASIK surgery, Siepser Eyecare offers refractive lens exchange, accommodative lenses and Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).

    During a patient’s comprehensive consultation, Siepser Eyecare will ensure that the condition of the patient’s eyes is fully understood and carefully explain the best treatment options. Patient safety and satisfaction is a top priority at Siepser Eyecare. Recommending the best treatment options for individual needs is essential to that commitment and the standard of care at the practice.

    What Are the Potential Risks of LASIK?

    LASIK is a popular procedure due to its high success rates. Although it is normal to experience some blurriness, light sensitivity and discomfort immediately after surgery, most patients return to regular activity within 24 hours and see immediate, positive results in that time period. The development of Dry Eye Syndrome can be a side effect of LASIK surgery. Siepser Eyecare is a Dry Eye Center of Excellence. The practice carefully evaluates patients pre- and post-operatively for Dry Eye to improve LASIK results and increase patient comfort.

    Your vision is a major component of your quality of life. To protect sight, patients should gather as much information as possible and place their trust in proven medical professionals. We invite anyone interested in LASIK surgery to schedule a complimentary evaluation at Siepser Eyecare.

    REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE

    Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a type of vision correction surgery that involves using ultrasound to remove the eye’s natural lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to minimize the use of glasses and contacts. It is an option for some patients who are not a candidate for LASIK surgery.

    ACCOMMODATIVE LENSES

    Accommodation is a natural process that allows the eye to focus on objects at varying distances. As the lens becomes more rigid with age, accommodation declines. Accommodative Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are tiny, clear, plastic lenses that are surgically implanted into the eye and attach to the eye’s focusing muscles. Accommodating IOLs are primarily used for the treatment of cataracts. Accommodating IOLs are unique because they move inside your eye in order to accommodate focusing at different distances. The Siepser Eyecare team attaches
    a tiny hinge to the eye’s focusing muscles so that the patient’s eye can once again change the shape of the lens to focus. Dependence on reading glasses is dramatically reduced or even eliminated, along with the cataract and blurry vision.

    PRK

    Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. PRK uses a cool beam of light to reshape the surface of the cornea. It is a good solution for patients that are not a candidate for LASIK due to a thin cornea or other conditions. The recovery from PRK can take a bit longer and be slightly less comfortable than LASIK, however, the Siepser team has developed a process and care that ensures their patients are as comfortable as possible during their healing to restored good vision.
