Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Santa Clarita Family Optometry, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Mikhail performs a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Mikhail has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (661) 255-2050 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office.
After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Dr. Mikhail is experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
