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 Dr. Glenn Baggs, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery.
Once Dr. Baggs has performed an evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to an ophthalomogist for a final evaluation. The surgeon will perform advanced diagnostic testing to 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. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at 918-687-9898 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you at our office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. Dr. Baggs is experienced in working with patients before and after the operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call 918-687-9898 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK.
