Costa Mesa LASIK co-management
At the offices of Jeffrey H Brown Optometry, we provide custom made contact lenses, eyeglasses and designer frames as well as appointments for eye exams and Costa Mesa LASIK co-management. LASIK co-management evaluates the eyes before surgery to determine if the patient is a candidate for LASIK surgery and to receive all the necessary measurements your surgeon needs. The co-managing physician continues postoperative care and reports progress back to the surgeon.
Before your Costa Mesa LASIK co-management, we’ll provide you with a full eye exam that starts with a full medical history inquiry. This also helps us diagnose any problems that may happen in the future and allow us to better diagnose any existing problems before your LASIK surgery. Dilated exams can detect over 30 systemic conditions including diseases such as diabetes and conditions like high blood pressure or tumors. If needed, we will prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses and any medication for eye disease as well. LASIK is a simple procedure that takes only about 15 minutes in our offices and can be done quickly and conveniently, allowing patients the use of full vision afterwards.
Our Costa Mesa LASIK co-management procedures help us to evaluate your eyes before your surgery to make sure they’re healthy. We also offer pediatric eye care. Because one in four school children may suffer from issues with their eye health that can impact their education and cause them to have poor academic performance, it is recommended that they receive their first eye exam before they turn six months old, another at three years old, and another exam before they enter the first grade. After children enter school, they should have an eye exam at least once every other year unless problems arise with their eyes. Call our offices for more information and to make an appointment for LASIK co-management procedures.
Costa Mesa LASIK co-management
Millions of people have some form of vision problem, whether they have been diagnosed with this issue early on in life or have only developed it during their adult years. No matter what, vision problems are treated with the use of prescription lenses, but will many people may not realize is that there are additional options that do not involve the use of glasses or contacts. If you happen to be interested in an alternative like this, then we here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry can tell you more about surgeries like LASIK, how this sort of procedure can improve your vision, as well as provide you with Costa Mesa LASIK co-management.
Most vision problems arise from inherent imperfections in the shape of the eyes cornea. The cornea is the clear curved portion of the eye that rests just over the pupil, acting very much like the lens of the camera. Like a camera lens, the clarity and curvature of the cornea affects the way that light passes through it and is refracted, thus affecting the clarity of the images that you see every day. A person with normal or “perfect vision” will generally have corneas that are evenly dome shaped. People with vision problems will have varying shaped corneas, sometimes conical, sometimes flats, or sometimes anywhere in between. Depending on the nature of your vision impairments, prescription lenses are generally prescribed in order to help provide your eyes with an additional lens through which to focus and see through. What procedures like LASIK aim to do, however, is to reshape the cornea itself so that you can see clearly on your own without the assistance of prescription lenses. One of our eye doctors here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry can help determine whether or not you are eligible for this procedure and they can even refer you to a LASIK surgeon who will perform the surgery. With Costa Mesa LASIK co-management, our eye doctor will be able to prep you before surgery, basically making sure that you are eligible for the procedure to begin with, and they can also help when it comes to follow ups and making sure that the healing process is going as planned.
LASIK is a revolutionary procedure that can provide people with clear and perfect vision like never before. This particular surgery correct your vision by slicing through the cornea itself and reshaping it so that it can produce a better vision once the cornea has healed. With the help of our eye doctor here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry you can learn more about this procedure, you can also find out whether you are eligible for the surgery, and you can even get started.
