Is surgery appropriate for your eyes? That depends on your vision and needs. When you want to consider LASIK eye surgery in San Jose, seek San Jose eye care from our clinic. We will clarify your options for your eyes.
LASIK is a type of laser surgery used to correct common vision problems. It works well for nearsightedness, farsightedness or similar eye conditions. It does not treat glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or similar conditions; rather, it focuses on the most common reasons you may use prescription glasses.
The first standard for LASIK eye surgery is your age. You must be at least 18 years old to qualify for the surgical procedure and also need healthy eyes for the procedure. In our clinic, we check your eyes for common conditions that may prevent you from getting the procedure before discussing your treatment options. We only recommend the procedure if your eyes are healthy enough to go through the laser surgery.
Our San Jose eye specialist helps you before and after LASIK eye surgery. Before the procedure, we evaluate your eyes and help determine if you qualify for the treatment. When you finish the procedure, we offer after-care services. Our services evaluate the changes to your vision after the treatment and the solutions that may help with your long-term visual needs. We also offer follow-up advice to help your eyes recover and heal. Our suggestions depend on your eyes and visual needs.
When you need glasses due to nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, you may qualify for treatment with LASIK. The key is clarifying if it will help with your specific goals. To learn more about the treatment or to set up an appointment with our team, call (408) 884-2215 today.
