Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK eye surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Carolina Vision Center, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Woodcock will perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. If you are considering LASIK, you will need to have a current exam to determine if you are a candidate for the surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our ophthalmologist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Woodcock has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, our staff will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate we will then schedule a date for your procedure. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (910) 485-3937 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Fayetteville office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. A year after your surgery, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Dr. Woodcock is experienced in working with patients both pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call 910-405-7057 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
