Five Questions to Ask During a LASIK Consultation

From school to work to sports, nothing beats being able to see clearly! Start your journey to gain visual freedom and vastly improve your eye health by contacting us today at Vold Vision in Fayetteville, AR.
In the meantime, here are five essential questions to think about and bring up during your free consultation:
1) Am I a good candidate for LASIK?
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for LASIK. One important consideration is the thickness of your cornea. If you do not have sufficient corneal tissue, it will not be possible to make the necessary LASIK flap. The good news is that we offer several options including PRK or ICL that are excellent options for patients with thin corneas.
Those with certain ocular conditions, such as dry eye syndrome, cataracts, or glaucoma, may require alternative corrective procedures, which we offer as well.
Similarly, those with various health complications, including diabetes and autoimmune disorders, may not be able to receive LASIK for the same reason: potentially poor healing outcomes.
2) How is LASIK performed?
LASIK is a time-tested technique for correcting common visual disorders, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. These complications arise if the eyeball is abnormally shaped and cannot focus light onto the retina at the back of the eye.
LASIK surgery offers a simple fix. First, we use a laser to carefully create a flap on the eye's surface. The laser, guided by an advanced imaging system, makes ultra-precise incisions that heal quickly. Then, a series of computer-guided laser pulses gradually reshape the eye so that it can properly focus light onto the retina. Our ZEISS VisuMax is unparalleled in its gentleness, producing only the slight sensation of pressure.
3) How is my care tailored specifically for me?
Our team comprehensively considers all relevant factors for your optimal outcome and the quickest, easiest recovery possible. Combined with our state-of-the-art tech and facilities, this is one of the reasons that we help patients from Fayetteville, Rogers, Bentonville, Springdale, Northwest Arkansas and from across the entire state of Arkansas.
You'll also enjoy your very own personal Vold Vision "Patient Concierge" to accompany you through every step. Because we know there's nothing better than feeling comfortable and attended to throughout your visit and procedure.

Our surgeons and practice are nationally recognized, thanks to a commitment to bettering patients' lives. Additionally, based on the number of LASIK and vision correction surgeries performed monthly, we're proud to have earned a spot among the top 10% of clinics nationwide.
5) How likely am I to face complications?
The answer is not very likely. Around 700,000 LASIK surgeries are performed every year with a minimal complication rate of less than 1%. Plus, past patients are enamored with the results, with an unprecedented satisfaction rate that exceeds 95%.
