Q&A with Your Optometrist

Q: Should I scan my retinas/back of the eye?
A: It depends on the patient. During a traditional exam, drops are instilled to dilate the pupils and allow the doctor to visualize the retina. We utilize scans to see layers of the retina that are not visible to the human eye. These layers can help detect early changes in diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Q: Am I a good candidate for refractive surgery?
A: Patients who are at least 18 years of age, have healthy eyes that are free from retinal problems, corneal scars, and any eye diseases are generally suitable. Many patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism are potential candidates. We will also discuss your lifestyle needs to help you decide if LASIK is the best alternative for you. If you would like to schedule a free LASIK consultation, please contact our office.
