LASIK Co-Management

What is LASIK

LASIK surgery is the most common refractive eye surgery performed today. It is used to correct a number of different ocular conditions, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. While Five Parks Vision and Eye Care does not perform LASIK procedures, Dr. Partnow offers LASIK consultation, as well as comprehensive pre-care and post-operative care, in collaboration with your eye surgeon.

What is LASIK

LASIK is short for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. The procedure is performed by a trained ophthalmologist and involves the use of a laser to reshape the cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK surgery provides a permanent alternative to wearing glasses or contact lenses. Best of all, LASIK is quick, painless and produces dramatic results. Most patients report seeing 20/20 within just 24 hours of undergoing the procedure.

Who can get LASIK surgery?

The ideal candidate for LASIK procedures is over the age of 21 and has relatively healthy eyes with adequate corneal thickness. This is important because the LASIK process requires the removal of tissue from the cornea in order to reshape the eye. For this reason, individuals with conditions like corneal disease, chronic dry eye or other abnormalities may not be good candidates for LASIK. To be certain, a comprehensive eye exam is required.

About the LASIK Procedure

LASIK surgery is performed as an out-patient procedure at a local surgical center, under the care of highly experienced surgeons with whom Dr. Partnow has worked for nearly a decade.

Patients undergoing LASIK can expect the procedure to last approximately one hour in total. The actual surgery takes approximate 15 minutes per eye. 

LASIK Recovery

Post-operative care may be performed by an eye doctor other than your LASIK surgeon. This is referred to as LASIK co-management. Dr. Partnow at Five Parks Vision and Eye Care is happy to provide this service at our office through a co-management agreement with your surgeon. Feel free to contact us for more information. 

After-LASIK Eye Care at Five Parks

Even if you achieve perfect vision from your surgery, it’s still important to have your eyes examined by a eye care professional at least once a year. This allows us to ensure that your vision remains stable. It also enables us to identify potential ocular problems early, so we can address them before they have the chance to worsen. 

Get in touch today to schedule your post-LASIK exam and let us help you manage your eyesight effectively. Not a patient of Five Parks? No problem. We are happy to serve as a referral practice for your LASIK co-management needs. Contact our office today to get started.

I was looking for a place close to me that sold Chemistrie glasses and sunglass clips. The place I bought my glasses from went out of business due to COVID. I found Five Parks Vision as an authorized rep and it was in the neighborhood just west from my home. I worked with Bre who was more than helpful and super friendly! She not only helped me get my sunglass clip replaced but also gave me coupons for contact solution. She also helped me with solutions for what I could do in the interim when I wouldn't have my glasses while they were being fitted with the new clip. I felt she really went above and beyond to help me in my situation and I really appreciated it.

My family has been clients of Five Parks Vision for 6+ years and are very pleased. The staff conducted the pre-exam very efficiently and were friendly. Shout out to Ben. The office manager explained the paperwork and charges thoroughly. I work in software and I put extra money into frames and lenses, but my VSP insurance was accepted and offset costs. Dr Gary is very personable. I recommend this for your family vision needs.

I have worn glasses/contacts most of my life and Dr. Partnow is by far the most welcoming, easy to work with, and hilarious optometrist I have ever been to. I've been going to Five Parks Vision now for over 4 years and I've never had any issues. Most of the time I can be in an out in the blink of an eye (lame dad joke).

I really loved Dr Partnow / Dr Gary ! He was extremely professional and personable. He answered all my questions. As I wasn't seeing well driving at night. Turns out I do need glasses. The staff took great care of me and my wallet. They let me know all my options and explained my insurance as well. Overall just a really good experience. Thanks Dr Gary and Staff ! You rock and my glasses are perfect.
