Getting Familiar with Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Laser vision correction comes in different forms and is an excellent option for patients looking to reduce their reliance on their glasses or contact lenses.

During your initial consultation, our team will carry out a thorough evaluation that can include: 

  • Full medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
  • Eye dominance testing
  • Reviewing your eye history
  • Reviewing your refractive surgery options

We provide comprehensive pre-surgery co-management and post-surgery care to help our patients feel their best and monitor the healing process. Our team can refer you to a reputable eye surgeon to complete the laser eye surgery.

Helping You Understand Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery comes in different forms, and at Oxford Optometry, we strive to help you navigate the different procedures available. Your laser vision correction procedure will depend on your visual needs and what type of laser eye surgery method best meets those needs.

LASIK Eye Surgery

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most well-known and commonly performed laser refractive surgery option to correct vision.

LASIK is a quick procedure that can usually be done in 30 minutes or less. Your surgeon will apply numbing drops in your eyes before your procedure begins.

During the procedure, your surgeon will use a precision instrument to create a small flap to access the part of your cornea that requires reshaping. Using the precision instrument, your surgeon removes tiny amounts of corneal tissue. Once the reshaping process is complete, your surgeon carefully places the flap back into place to heal.

It usually takes around 2 to 3 months for your eyes to fully heal and your vision to stabilize following surgery. Our team provides comprehensive post-surgery care, including follow-up appointments, to ensure the healing process is progressing smoothly.

Refractive multifocal lens exchange (RLE) is an alternative to other laser eye surgery options. This procedure replaces your eye’s natural clear lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to address refractive errors.

Multifocal IOLs can provide clear vision at multiple distances and tackle various vision issues. Multifocal IOLs can also be excellent for computer usage and a substitute for reading glasses. The compromise made with multifocal IOLs is sacrificing some distance vision for convenient, close vision usage.

Cataracts develop when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes clouded. When your vision is compromised and cataracts begin interfering with your daily activities, surgery is the only option to remove them.

During cataract surgery, your surgeon will remove the cloudy natural lens and replace it with a clear artificial implant known as an intraocular lens. Your surgeon will place the artificial intraocular lens in the same position as your removed natural lens.

Cataract surgery often improves distance vision enough that you won’t need glasses. However, near vision may still be blurred, and you may require reading glasses.

Our team will work with you during the post-surgery care period to ensure that your visual needs are met. For more information on cataracts, please visit our eye disease diagnosis and management page.
