LASIK surgery offers some wonderful benefits and can be a great option for the right patient. If you’re considering LASIK surgery, it’s very important to see an experienced independent doctor at reputable eye care practice like our Staten Island optometry practice. While our optometrist doesn’t perform surgery, he is involved with the co-management of LASIK surgery.
LASIK surgery is typically co-managed between the primary eye doctor and the LASIK surgeon. You’ll first need to have a consultation with our expert eye doctor at our high-quality Staten Island optometry practice. Getting a LASIK consultation is extremely important because it’s essential for you to be thoroughly informed about all the available procedure options and about the risks and complications of each of these options. If you and your eye doctor decide to proceed with LASIK, you’ll be referred to the LASIK surgeon who will perform the surgery. Our expert eye doctor, Dr. Raymond Helfand and the surgeon will work together to manage the after-care. You’ll be in excellent hands when you choose our practice for your eyecare needs.
