Lasik Image

What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser In-situ Keratomileusis) surgery is the most commonly performed laser vision corrective procedure in the United States.  

What does it treat?

Lasik can be performed to treat Myopia, Astigmatism and Hyperopia.  This is accomplished by reshaping the cornea with the use of an excimer laser. 

How long does it take?

Lasik is an outpatient procedure that typically takes only a few minutes of actual surgery time.

How long is recovery time?

You can typically expect to be back to your daily routine in a matter of 2 to 3 days.

Are you a good candidate? 

There are many factors that are used to determine whether or not Lasik is right for you. In general, some of these factors would include:  optimal eye and overall health, stabilized glasses and/or contact lens prescriptions, and a structurally sound cornea.  Since our eyes continue to grow and change just as our bodies do during childhood, most candidates are not eligible for Lasik until the age of 18 to 21.

Evaluation and Referral

LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses that 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 OptimEyes, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Saeed 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 determining 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. Saeed 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. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at 630-359-3597 to schedule a consultation.

Post-Operative Care

Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Villa Park office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Dr. Saeed is experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way.
