Laser Vision Correction Consultation & Co-management
At Dr Gallo & Associates, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our Optometrists offer pre and post operative care for patients undergoing laser eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.
Laser surgery uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. Along with improving your vision, laser surgery has also been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions.
Advantages of Laser Surgery
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if laser surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for laser eye surgery, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from this surgery.
Evaluation and Referral
At Dr Gallo & Associates, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in laser surgery. We perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision.
A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for laser surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once our Optometrists have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for Laser surgery, you will be given a referral to the laser surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center 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 be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination.
