Eye Surgery Consultation
At Delaney Eye Center, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. If neither glasses or contact lenses excite you, Dr. Salazar will discuss surgical options and make an excellent referral to a corneal surgeon. The most common surgical correction is LASIK; however, LASIK may not be the right choice for you. Lens exchange surgery (ICL) may be a better option. Let Dr. Salazar steer you in the right direction.
Don’t call her crying after you made the wrong decision! YES, this happens!
Dr. Salazar offers pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery, lens exchange (ICL) and/or cataract surgery.
Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.
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 surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other eye conditions. At Delaney Eye Center, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Salazar performs 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 determine if you are a candidate for LASIK 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 Dr. Salazar has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK 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.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Orlando office.
Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months.
After one year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure.
Dr. Salazar is experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is the right choice for you.
While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some significant advantages. People who play sports have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
