We work with many excellent ophthalmologists (eye surgeons) in the Dallas area and can provide recommendations depending on what care is needed. Most of the ophthalmologists we work with co-manage with our doctors. That means the surgeon performs the necessary procedure and you come back to Marshall Eye Care for your post-operative care. Whether you require a refractive procedure (LASIK, PRK), cataract surgery, cornea transplant, a laser treatment for glaucoma, an injection to halt macular degeneration or laser surgery to repair a retinal hole or tear, our doctors will send you to the right surgeon for your specific need.
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses that 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 Marshall Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Our doctors perform 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 optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once the doctor has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the ophthalmologists we work with on an on-going basis. The ophthalmologist 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 ophthalmology office regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.Post-Operative Care
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
