Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses that latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Redwater Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Gill performs a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Gill has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis which is Black Hills Regional Eye Institute in Rapid City. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at (605) 723-3937 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Belle Fourche office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call (605) 723-3937 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
