What is LASIK and Refractive Surgery Co-Management?

LASIK and other refractive surgeries are delicate, and it can all feel overwhelming. That's why we work together with the eye surgeon to provide you with the best outcome in the most efficient manner.

We'll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and determine whether you're a candidate for refractive eye surgery. If so, we'll refer you to the ophthalmologist for surgery. Following surgery, we'll provide post-operative care to make sure you maintain healthy, clear vision.

Getting co-managed for LASIK and other refractive surgeries is an advantage, as you benefit from the expertise of two medical experts who work together to provide you with the best eye surgery results possible.

Contact Eyetique - Downtown in Downtown to schedule a consultation and find out if LASIK (or other refractive surgeries) is right for you.


How LASIK and Other Refractive Surgeries Improve Vision

Have trouble seeing near or far away? The source of the problem may be the curvature of your cornea. An irregular corneal shape affects the way light hits the retina–which sends visual signals to the brain.

LASIK and other refractive surgeries change the shape of your cornea to offer you clear vision, without the need for contacts and glasses. After the surgery, you'll be able to swim, shower and play sports without a second thought about your eyesight.


LASIK & Refractive Surgery Benefits

  • Highly effective

    There is a reason LASIK is so popular–96% of patients report satisfaction after this procedure.

  • Works quickly

    You may see results from LASIK or other refractive surgery quickly–sometimes as soon as a day or two after the treatment.

  • Minimal discomfort

    You are unlikely to feel any pain during the procedure thanks to the numbing drops. Also, you won’t need stitches or bandages after surgery.

  • Quick recovery time

    Compared to other eye surgeries, LASIK has a relatively quick recovery time. Although the speed varies from patient to patient, you may feel like yourself again in as little as 6 to 12 hours.


How to Prepare for LASIK and Other Refractive Surgery

  • Stop wearing contact lenses–your eye doctor will tell you how soon before surgery to wear glasses instead of contacts.
  • Understand the procedure–talk to your eye doctor about what to expect.
  • Arrange a ride–you won’t be able to drive home from the clinic, so coordinate with a friend or relative.
  • Arrive with a fresh, clean face–don’t apply eye makeup and avoid wearing heavy lotions or perfumes before the procedure.

What to Expect from the Treatment

  • The eye surgeon will apply numbing drops to your eye.
  • They will keep your eyes open with a device .
  • The eye surgeon will make a small flap in the surface of your cornea with a laser or microkeratome–a precision surgical instrument.
  • You will look directly at a light while the eye surgeon reshapes your cornea.
  • The surgeon will place the flap back in place so it can heal.

LASIK and Refractive Surgery After-Care

  • Apply eye drops as directed by your eye doctor.
  • Rest your eyes as much as possible in the ensuing days.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • You may return to your regular activities including driving, after a few days.
  • Go to all post-operative eye examinations.
  • You may experience blurry vision after surgery. This should go away, but if it persists after several months, discuss it with your Eyetique - Downtown eye doctor.

Excellent service and selection. Staff were so helpful and went beyond what I expected. Eyetique is ... fortunate to have the employees there especially in this era of diminished customer service and courtesy! My glasses are not easy to make and they are stylish and perfect. Well done Eyetique and staff!

Hands down, BEST experience I have had at an eye doctor in YEARS! My glasses/contact lens script is ... far from your "typical" one, so I was VEERRYY nervous and stressed out coming in because I did not know what to expect or what the doctor would say. Jamie at the front desk took the liberty to review my past eye history before the doctor even saw me, which helped a lot. I admit I did not know what to make of Dr Burke (at first), as he seemed to be a bit stand offish, but as the exam went on I began to feel more comfortable with him. He had absolutely zero judgement as to how my prescription was. Jamie was very efficient in explaining cost and shocked me by saying that I could order trial contact lenses but did not have to put anything down, money-wise. Was a big culture shock for me, being that past practices have wanted the money for contact lenses and glasses up front. My contacts and glasses have always been really expensive. All I had to pay was a copay. I could go on and on, but all in all, wonderful experience! So thank you Eyetique staff!

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE AT EYETIQUE Many years ago I purchased a IC! Berlin frame for my ... glasses at the Murray Avenue Eyetique location. I loved this manufacturer’s ingenious frame design, and they soon became my favorite glasses to wear. I only seemed to wear the other glasses when I misplaced these – I had to use something to see so that I could find them. Recently, the time had come for new lenses. I returned to Eyetique and selected a different but similar IC! Berlin frame. This frame was similar but more streamlined and delicate. I thought they’d work fine. That proved not to be the case. Within less than three months after purchase the frames broke. The frame section called the “arm” or “temple” separated and fell to the ground while I was walking. There was no way of knowing where I lost it. I soon realized that this frame design could not be trusted. I returned to Eyetique to with my newly purchased glasses less one arm and explained what happened to Melissa Kelly, Eyetique’s Project Manager. She heard my concerns, quickly assured me that these glasses would be replaced no questions asked. I then selected another IC Berlin frame and picked them up today. I knew right away when I put them on that this frame design was far superior and that they would be trouble free. After leaving Eyetique with these new glasses I was completely satisfied with no lingering concerns. Through my personal experience, I would recommend a trip to Eyetique for your future eye exam and eyeglass purchases. Geoff

Lasik Refractive Surgery FAQs

Will I still need to wear glasses after LASIK?

The satisfaction rate is very high for post-LASIK and refractive surgery patients. That said, whether you’ll still need corrective eyewear after surgery depends on your eye condition, how well your cornea responded to surgery, and the healing process.

What are some eye problems that LASIK and refractive surgery can't correct?

LASIK and refractive surgery are specifically designed to correct refractive errors caused by an irregular shaped cornea. It can’t solve the following: 

  • Amblyopia–lazy eye
  • Cataracts–cloudy patch on the surface of the lens
  • Glaucoma–damage to the optic nerve caused by pressure inside the eye
  • Keratoconus–weak or thin cornea that bulges forward
Can LASIK or other refractive surgeries have negative effects?

No procedure is completely free of possible risks and complications and the same is true of LASIK and refractive surgery. Some of these include: 

  • Dry eye symptoms
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Flap problems including infection
  • Vision undercorrection or overcorrection 

If you experience any of these. Contact Eyetique - Downtown right away.

Will I have to have LASIK and refractive surgery again?

Usually, LASIK or refractive surgery is successful the first time around. However, if the problem persists after the treatment, the eye surgeon may repeat the surgery.

Contact Eyetique - Downtown in Downtown today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.
