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 Savage Eye Clinic in Savage 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 Savage Eye Clinic eye doctor.

I had been seeing spots/flashing lights at the corner of my eye for a couple days. I learned this co... uld be an emergency, needing immediate retinal surgery to repair a tear! I messaged the office late at night. First thing the next morning, they called and I came in. The nurse who did the initial testing was terrific and explained and addressed my concern. Dr. Asman came right in, listened to my concern and did a full exam. I told her I was dealing with some *severe* anxiety and couldn’t imagine lying awake and still for up to 2 hours having my eye repaired! Luckily, it wasn’t a tear, I have some spots that cause the same symptom of the flashing lights. (If you or someone you know is having that happen, get to an eye doc immediately!) Had I in fact had the retinal tear, she told me she has a doc who would get me in within 30 minutes to do the surgery! Every person in that office from reception, nurse, doc was as kind, patient and gracious as can be. I don’t know to recommend someone more highly.

The staff was excellent in helping me calm down after I was late to get to the appointment because I... was in unfamiliar territory in Savage! Dr King was very helpful in telling me what I should do & how long this would last.

The friendly service starts when you walk in the door to the doctor and the staff that helps you pic... k out your glasses. They take their time to make sure the glasses work for you on your face and determine what your insurance will cover as well as down to what you want on your lenses. My son goes here as well and now my husband will be going there.

Great place to have your eyes cared for!

Dr Stout is very knowledgeably. Both he and the staff are also personable. He and the staff were a... ble to answer every question I had concerning my condition. I have been pleasantly surprised that there is an eye clinic so near me that can handle all of my needs.

Where to begin... Let's start with a "friendly reminder of my appointment" call. That was pretty coo... l. Then I get there and I must say, WOW, the staff is amazing. I can not find the words to state how awesome my visit was. Had a blast laughing with the young lady at the desk. Let's throw in about another 1000 cool points because she rides a motorcycle. The doctor was very knowledgeable, considerate, and helpful, I feel these accolades don't give enough justice. And the icing on the cake, to round out the bases coming in to home plate, the young woman who helped with my lense and frame selection, OMG, amazing. Super knowledgeable, great delivery, honest, and tries her best to get you savings. Overall, all in all, I highly recommend it. But who am i for you to listen to me? I'm just a guy who was blown away by this incredible staff, business, and experience.

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 Savage Eye Clinic 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 Savage Eye Clinic in Savage today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.
