How Eye Problems are Diagnosed
When you visit your eye doctor, you can expect a wide range of tests to detect vision problems. First, an eye test will be given. You will look at an eye chart and tell the doctor exactly what you see. A device with various lenses will be used to help correct your vision and it can tell an eye doctor whether you are nearsighted or farsighted. You may have your eyes dilated so the doctor can see the internal structure of your eyes. Other tests include an intraocular pressure test that tests for glaucoma.
Types of eye Surgeries
Once your optometrist performs diagnostic tests on your eyes, he may recommend a surgical procedure. Eye surgery may be used to treat a variety of conditions like presbyopia and astigmatism. Vision Care and Surgery Associates perform several surgical procedures, including:
- Cataract Surgery
- Glaucoma Surgery
- LASIK Vision Correction
What to Expect During Surgery
Laser eye surgery is performed while the patient is awake and in a reclining position. An anesthetic is given to numb the eyes and a lid speculum is used to help keep the eye open. Eye surgery typically takes about 30 minutes or less to complete. After surgery, vision is typically blurry, and patients may feel irritation in the eye. Eye drops are provided to prevent inflammation and infection. Clear vision usually returns the night of the surgery or by the next day. Patients should expect to have someone drive them home on the day of the surgery. Follow-up appointments are required throughout the year to measure any vision changes and to track the healing process.
