Eye Exam

Lasik/PRK

Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a highly accurate laser procedure that creates a flap on the front surface of the eye, then treatment is performed to reshape the cornea. Lasik was developed to decrease or eliminate the need for distance glasses or contact lenses. 

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a highly accurate laser procedure performed on the front surface of the eye that re-shapes your cornea to decrease or eliminate the need for distance glasses or contact lenses. 

You are a possible candidate for laser vision correction if:

  • You are in good general health with healthy eyes
  • You wear glasses or contact lenses to correct distance vision including nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism within parameters of correction
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Upon testing, your corneal thickness and corneal health meet criteria

Take the next step if you are considering treatment and contact our office.  508.747.4748  Our staff will reach out with details about scheduling; a dilated eye exam consultation with Dr. Kriegstein or Dr. Townshend, pre-op testing, treatment dates, and post-op care.  You will be provided with written information and during consultation all your questions and concerns will be addressed.

If you presently wear contact lenses ask our technicians when to remove your contact lenses prior to testing

Laser vision correction is a life-changing, decades old treatment, allowing patients to reduce their dependence or totally eliminate the need to wear glasses or contacts.  It is important to consider and communicate your expectations, while in consultation with your doctor. Our goals are long term visual improvement but, as with any medical procedure there are risks, complications and side effects.  Talk with your surgeon, be informed, ask questions, find out if treatment is right for you and your lifestyle. Financing options are available through CareCredit.  Ask for details about insurance coverage and healthcare plans.
