With You the Whole Way Through

While we don’t directly perform your laser eye surgery, our optometrists are ready to guide and assist you all the way. From the moment you step into our office until the end of the postoperative care period, we’ll be there for you. Smithfield Eye will help you choose the surgery method best suited for you, and along with your ophthalmologist, will provide a clear way forward.

What Happens in a Surgery Consultation?

While laser surgery can be an effective way to correct vision, not everyone is eligible for it. To determine whether it’s an option and what surgical option is best suited for you, we will need to start with a comprehensive eye exam. We’ll assess your overall eye health through several tests, analyze your prescription stability, and check to see if you have any eye problems that might make you ineligible for surgery.

If we determine you’re a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery, we’ll answer any questions you have and help you weigh your options. There are associated risks and benefits to all elective surgeries, and laser eye surgery is no different. If you feel ready, we’ll also help schedule your procedure.

Once the surgery is done and you’re recovering, feel free to contact us anytime to voice concerns or ask questions. Our practice prides itself on being family orientated, and we want to be your family’s optometrists for life. After your surgery we’ll schedule a follow-up eye examination, where we’ll see how you’re vision is doing.

Solving Eye Issues With Surgery

There are many different laser eye surgeries for a range of different eye conditions. By correcting refractive errors like hyperopia or astigmatism, elective laser eye surgery may be the right fit for your lifestyle.

LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK is the most common laser eye surgery and has a strong reputation among eye doctors and patients alike. It’s a surgery that is often used to correct refractive errors such as myopia. LASIK uses a special cutting laser to precisely change the shape of your cornea, allowing light to reach your retina the way it’s supposed to.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of laser eye surgery. During this procedure the ophthalmologist uses a laser to reshape the cornea, improving how light rays enter the eye and focus on the retina. This type of surgery is ideal for people with thin corneas or very dry eyes and requires that you have stable vision, meaning your prescription is no longer changing year over year.

One of the most reliable treatment for cataracts is to surgically remove your eyes’ natural lens. The old lens is then replaced by an artificial intraocular lens. Laser-assisted cataract surgery is done by using a laser to make the incisions and sometimes softening cataracts for easier removal.

Your Eye Surgery Teammates

Making the choice to get eye surgery is a big step in correcting your vision. Surgery might seem intimidating, but our eye doctors walk you through the whole process. Before you need to make any decisions we will have you educated on the benefits, risks, and procedures of each type of laser eye surgery.

Smithfield Eye & Optical is your surgery partner every step of the way, from an initial consultation to post-surgery evaluations. Making sure you are seeing better and feeling better is our priority.
