Year End Best Eye Care Advice

Posted by: West Georgia Eye Care Center in Frontpage Article on December 30, 2014

As 2014 quickly draws to a close, the best eye care advice is the same as it was at the start of the year: consult an ocular professional for your eye care needs, and remember that it matters who you see! Today, we will examine the frequently-foggy topic of LASIK candidacy. Can anyone get LASIK? Should everyone get LASIK?

It matters that you see an eye care professional who strives to provide the best possible solution for your unique situation. Surgery may be the answer, but it is not always the answer. A recent local magazine article stated that with today’s technology, almost everyone can have LASIK. While this may be true, it was not pointed out that not everyone should have LASIK surgery! Just because it is possible does not mean it is your best option.

West Georgia Eye Care Center has been providing safe and effective LASIK surgery since it was first approved by the FDA. We have invested in technological advances as the FDA has approved them and (perhaps more importantly) as they have been experientially proven by large patient population study. The iLASIK procedure offered at West Georgia Eye Care Center is the most advanced all-laser LASIK available. It is innovative, individualized, and has incredible results. Still, it may not be the right answer for everyone.

The only way to know if you are a patient that meets candidacy criteria is to have a comprehensive LASIK evaluation with a board-certified and experienced LASIK surgeon whose goal is to offer you the eye care that is best suited to your individual eyes.

It is our goal to serve our patients’ best interests. Sometimes, that means we must counsel certain patients that LASIK refractive surgery may not be the best choice for them. The same philosophy applies to the comprehensive array of eye care treatments provided at West Georgia Eye Care. We are committed to you, and will seek to address your concerns and keep you well-informed about your vision correction options. You don’t have to make those decisions in the dark! Remember, it matters who you see!
