Why are Annual Eye Exams Necessary After LASIK Surgery?

AllegrettoWave3LASIK surgery is a common procedure performed to dramatically improve one’s eyesight. Though your vision may now be 20/20 or better, it’s still essential for you to attend annual eye exams to ensure that your eyesight remains healthy and in tact.

At CorrectVision Laser Institute, our optometrists are trained to recognize eye diseases and conditions that can threaten your vision and overall health. An annual visit to the eye doctor is your best bet in safeguarding yourself against any possible debilitating eye diseases.

Who Should Take Advantage of Annual Eye Exams?

Candidates for LASIK surgery are specifically selected based on certain criterion that makes them eligible to undergo this procedure. However, some candidates should take advantage of eye exams. These candidates include the following:

  • Patients who have diabetes, cancer or other chronic medical conditions (especially those taking medications that may affect the eyes)
  • Patients that may require future enhancements or glasses for certain activities
  • Patients that experience dry eyes due to allergies (eye drops can be prescribed by your eye doctor to ensure you get the most out of your LASIK surgery)
  • Patients who view LASIK surgery as a lifetime commitment (annual exams will also maintain your eligibility if you were to need enhancements)

What are the Long-Term Health Benefits of Annual Eye Exams?

Opting to undergo LASIK surgery ultimately means that you decided to invest in a method that would provide you with the best eyesight possible. Annual eye exams give you the opportunity to reap the benefits of this investment for years to come and help to ensure a clean bill of eye health!
