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 Innovative Eyecare in West Oak Hill 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 Innovative Eyecare eye doctor.

Very professional staff and incredibly kind. Glasses are often thought of as an accessory that hinde... rs confidence and self esteem, but my optician helped me pick out frames that made me feel stylish and professional. Thank you, innovative eye care staff!

I enjoyed my visit at Innovative eye care. Every encounter was smooth from the check in process, the... tech, and finally Dr.Joel Trinidad. He was informative when explaining my Optos scans, patient, and had great bedside manner.

It’s been 15 years since I’ve had my eyes checked out so I was a bit apprehensive about going. T... hat being said I had a great visit with Dr. Trinidad! Appointment set up was easy. Very little wait time. And Dr. Trinidad was calming and thorough. Really made it easy, painless, and got all my questions answered to a great detail. Recommend!

Been a customer around 20 years, but this was the first time as a retiree w/o vision insurance. Cami... lle patiently and thoroughly educated me about my many options and found ways to bring down the cost of my glasses. Superb customer care and assistance! They are fortunate to have someone of her caliber on the team and I'm so grateful she helped me!!

I have long been a patient of Dr. Dan McQueen and have always experienced excellent care from Dr. Mc... Queen and Innovative Eyecare, but I wanted to commend his caring staff, especially Monique. I live outside of Austin and needed 2 prescriptions filled for an eye inflammation. Monique spent the better part of the morning assisting me in finding a pharmacy nearby that had both medicines in stock so I did not have to drive to multiple locations. Her initiative and thoughtfulness are so appreciated, I highly recommend Innovative Eyecare.

I have been a customer of Innovative Eyecare now for 2 years, and I have had nothing but GOOD experi... ences every time - from the front desk personnel, to the Optometrist, to the associates helping with picking out my frames. However, I must say that this last visit was TRULY an amazing experience of "good customer service" by Melissa Hernandez. Melissa went out of her way days later to double-check my insurance coverage for my purchase because something didn't seem right to her, and I am SO THANKFUL that she decided to investigate a little further - because it did help with cost for my purchase. To have someone call you days later because they took it upon themselves to ensure that their customer was getting the right price says a lot about the kind of customer service Melissa wants to give to those who come in to Innovative Eyecare! Thanks again to the entire team for always putting on a smile and making me feel welcomed and comfortable every time I visit. Blessings!

Very good dr and staff
- Nov. 16, 2021
It was so easy to get a timely appointment and fill out forms as a new patient, with helpful reminde... rs and resources and onsite team communication along the way. It was very safe (masks, freshly sanitized equipment), and fast BUT it was also very thorough. Dr. McQueen and the team were incredibly helpful explaining each step of the exam, what to keep in mind / look out for in general with eye health, and walking through options for contact lens types for my specific needs. It was very efficient but very individualized care!

The Staff was very friendly and professional. The sign in went smoothly. My appointment was at ... 1:30 p.m. and I got there at 12:30 p.m. I used a Medical Transportation System and that's why I arrived so early. I was called back at 1:20...took all the eye tests...eye exam performed and at 2:00 p.m....I was looking at frames. So at 2:15 p.m., I was waiting for my ride back to my residence. I have been going to Innovative Eyecare for over seven years!!!

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 Innovative Eyecare 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 Innovative Eyecare in West Oak Hill today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.
