Are you tired of relying on glasses or contact lenses to see the world clearly? Refractive eye surgery might be the solution you’ve been looking for!

At Dr. Gary Tracy Optometry & Eyewear between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway, we offer consultations for LASIK surgery and other refractive surgeries as well as post-operative care. 

What is refractive eye surgery?   

There are several types of refractive eye surgeries, but the most well-known is LASIK surgery. LASIK eye surgery is an effective treatment option for refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. People often choose LASIK when they want to reduce or eliminate the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses. 

LASIK surgery is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that involves using a computer-controlled laser and a small blade to reshape the cornea. By altering the cornea’s curvature, LASIK allows light to properly focus on the retina, resulting in improved vision without the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. There are usually no side effects associated with this quick procedure, and patients experience only mild discomfort.   

Your refractive eye surgery consultation 

During your consultation, our experienced optometrist will conduct an eye exam to assess various aspects of your eye health and vision. We will discuss your medical history, evaluate your current prescription, and perform a series of diagnostic tests to determine if you are an ideal candidate for refractive eye surgery.  

If we determine you are a suitable candidate, we will refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist in the area who specializes in LASIK surgery. They will take additional measurements during the pre-operative consultation to confirm your suitability for surgery.   

When you make an appointment at our office, please mention that you are interested in laser eye surgery. Our staff will then know to include a LASIK consultation as a part of your exam.    

What happens after LASIK surgery?   

After undergoing LASIK surgery, your eyes will need time to heal and adjust. Our expert doctors provide post-operative care for LASIK and refractive eye surgery at our office on the Upper West Side. We’ll schedule follow-up visits to closely examine your healing eyes and track your vision improvement. During these visits, we will address any concerns you have and share valuable advice for ensuring a successful recovery.  

If you’re interested in LASIK surgery or another refractive eye surgery, contact our office today to schedule an appointment. Our highly skilled eye care professionals will recommend the treatment option that is best suited to your vision and needs.
