Vision Correction Surgery
WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?
One of the best uses of your time when considering a vision correction procedure (refractive surgery), is to visit us for a free consultation. Dr. Mahanti performs multiple procedures and there are many factors that go into the determination of which is best for you. Everyone has heard of LASIK, but sometimes this is not the optimal procedure for an individual, and sometimes it’s not even an option.
When you join us for a consultation, you will be visiting with Certified Ophthalmic personnel – a medical professional, not a sales person. Unlike some facilities, we do not work on commission, we work for you. During your visit we will obtain scans and measurements of your eyes. While these preliminary measurements will not be used for your actual procedure, they give us information that will be used to determine which procedures may be best for you. Once your candidacy is determined, we may discuss your occupation, your hobbies, and the various ways you use your eyes.
A consultation takes about 45-60 minutes. You may wear your contact lenses to this visit, and bring along any contact lens or spectacle information you may have at home. The date and power of your most recent prescriptions and any documentation of stability (such as prescriptions over several years) will help us determine your candidacy for any of our procedures. We want to be sure to answer all of your questions, so bring a list. By the end of this visit, you’ll have a clear understanding of the options available to you and you’ll see for yourself what makes our team the best choice for such an important decision. This is your time! We appreciate and respect that and want to make the best of it. We welcome the opportunity to teach you about the miracle of modern refractive surgery and which option may be the best for you.
