At East Main Vision Clinic, we co-manage LASIK and other refractive surgeries with some the of best surgeons in the country. Please schedule a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you may qualify for one of these procedures.
We have extensive experience in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of LASIK and other vision correction procedures. We will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Refractive Technology. If there are no contraindications for the procedure, we will recommend a pre-operative evaluation to determine suitability for refractive surgery. This evaluation includes:
- Counseling on refractive surgery options
- Eye dominance testing
- Review of eye history and refractive stability
- Medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
- Current Refractive Status
If after the pre-operative evaluation, the decision is made to proceed with surgery, your information will be forwarded to the surgeon, and a pre-operative consult with a surgeon will be scheduled. Post-operative management will be provided by our doctor and includes multiple visits following surgery to include medical evaluation and management of vision and corneal healing. Evaluation of any additional needs such as reading glasses, sunglasses, or enhancement laser procedures is also part of the post-operative procedures.
LASIK is currently the most popular vision-correcting or “refractive” surgery available, but there are other options as well. We will help you find the ideal solution for your vision and partner with the best surgeon to perform your procedure.
Pre-Op and Post-Op Information for Eye Health
By following the pre-op information from our eye doctor and team, you can reduce your chances of infection and post-surgical complications.
Not only is it very important to care for your eyes before a procedure, but the aftercare is also vital. If you've had any kind of procedure there may be a risk of infection. You can reduce that when you follow proper guidelines from your optometrist. That way you'll have the best chance of your eyes healing properly. You will likely be prescribed eye drops or other medications. You may also be told not to touch or rub your eyes and given other instructions about how to care for them until they're fully healed.

Are Your Eyes Healthy Enough for Surgery?
There is more to ocular and refractive surgery than meets the eye. Patients who undergo ocular surgery are at higher risk for developing Dry Eye Disease. Surgery can cause disruption to the tear film that keeps your eyes lubricated and healthy, and can contribute to less than optimal vision after surgery. Take this survey to determine if you have underlying dry eye that could impact the outcome of your ocular surgery.
