Your Own Customized LASIK Procedure Plan
We only offer a fully customized procedure. That means we view each of our patients uniquely, and when we evaluate their eyes, we create a unique plan that is specific for them. No two patients are alike, each is unique, and therefore will receive very personalized and custom LASIK vision correction.
Another important fact is that you will see Dr. Goosey each time you come for an appointment. Unlike other large practices, where you see their optometrist for your appointments, and only get to see the person doing your procedure on the day of your surgery, Dr. Goosey ensures that he sees his patients during each visit from beginning to end. All of which further confirms our commitment and dedication to providing you with quality patient care.
Most importantly, you will receive LASIK from Dr. Goosey, one of the top physicians in the world, using one of the most advanced and leading technology platforms, and at a price that is very reasonable.
All eyes are unique.
In a way, your eyes are like a peacock’s feather or a snowflake-no two are exactly alike. When eyes are shaped correctly, light rays bend and focus directly on the retina, generating crisp images. However, when eyes are not perfectly shaped, light rays focus on the wrong part of your eye, causing the unwanted blurriness that you’ve been experiencing.
Could Laser Vision Correction really help?
Whether you have myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, laser vision surgery reshapes your cornea and, with the right equipment, puts the eyesight you have always dreamed of within reach.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis)
With LASIK surgery, a thin layer of tissue called a “flap” is created on the surface of the cornea. With the flap gently lifted, a laser delivers light energy to the cornea. This reshapes the cornea, allowing light rays to focus properly on the retina, providing sharp, clear vision. Following the procedure, the flap is set back in place and serves as a natural bandage, allowing your eyes to heal quickly. Therefore, what the LASIK procedure does is shape your eye lens like that of someone who was born with perfect vision.
LASIK: A proven procedure.
When something as critical as your vision is being discussed, you should rely on a solution that delivers excellent vision, as well as peace of mind. And although there are other, older types of lasers used for vision correction, LASIK is one of the most common, successful, and advanced.
Why are LASIK consultations important?
Having LASIK surgery is an important decision. Therefore, it’s critical to first speak with Dr. Goosey, to make sure you’re a good candidate. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Conduct an eye exam
- Verify if LASIK can improve your vision
- Check if your prescription has been stable for at least the past year
- Test for eye conditions that may affect your surgical options
- Make sure you are comfortable with and knowledgeable about LASIK
- Help you understand what to expect from the procedure
Any type of surgery is a big step, much less having eye surgery, so don’t forget to seek the advice of your eye surgeon before making any big decisions. Your surgeon may determine that a different procedure may be your best option.
