If you are thinking about LASIK, it is important to select an eye care practitioner who is specially trained to advise and care for you. We have partnered with TLC Laser Eye Center in Chesterfield to provide LASIK services for our patients.
Working in partnership with the area’s best laser surgeons, O’Fallon Family Eyecare provides an unsurpassed level of care for our LASIK patients. Dr. Joseph Hegyi has worked in laser surgery centers and after managing over 1,200 cases is uniquely qualified to answer your questions and help you decide if LASIK is right for you. He will always give you an honest evaluation on whether or not laser vision correction is appropriate for you.
Specially trained in follow-up care, we will coordinate closely with the laser surgeon to monitor your ongoing vision and post-operative care. And always, we provide the personal attention that is the basis of quality eye care. Since LASIK patients will require an annual preventative eye health exam, it’s comforting to know that a local state-of-the-art eye clinic will always be available to provide continuing and advanced eye care.
Are You A Candidate for LASIK?
The reason why refractive surgeries like LASIK and PRK are so safe and effective is because patients must go through a rigorous screening to ensure they are a good candidate.
Patients must have healthy eyes and several conditions like glaucoma, severe dry eyes and infections can slow or limit post-operative healing. You must be at least 18 years old, mainly to ensure that your vision is stable (and partially for legal purposes). If you are pregnant or nursing you to wait until your hormones are back to a normal level before surgery.
Together with your laser surgeon, O’Fallon Family Eyecare shares a common goal – to insure the best vision possible, today and for years to come.
Financing options are always available to make your journey to visual freedom affordable. We are proud to help patients in O’Fallon, Wentzville, Dardenne Prairie and St. Charles in their LASIK journey.
