Cataract & LASIK Co-Management
At Optical Expressions, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our optometrist, Dr. Erika Wilken, offers pre-and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures such as cataract surgery. Let her help you achieve the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.
Evaluation and Referral
At Optical Expressions, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery and cataract surgery. During your evaluation, Dr. Wilken will perform a complete review of your history and a full assessment of your eye health and vision. An exam helps determine whether you’re a candidate for LASIK surgery or cataract surgery. Some factors can affect your results, which is why we always thoroughly evaluate your eyes. The evaluation also helps our optometrist determine if your prescription is stable and if you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
If Dr. Wilken determines you’re a candidate for LASIK or cataract surgery, she’ll refer you to the LASIK surgery center or cataract surgery center we work with. There you will receive a more advanced diagnostic test to determine your eligibility for surgery.
You’ll also have a chance to discuss various surgery options. We’ll correspond with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. Call us at (602) 254-3169 to schedule a consultation if you are considering LASIK surgery or cataract surgery.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Phoenix office. A typical post-op care schedule involves a day after the surgery follow-up followed by prearranged times over the following six months.
After a year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. If at any point you have questions about pre or post-operative care, Dr. Wilken is more than happy to help. She has years of experience in working with patients. Just call us at (602) 254-3169 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
Advantages of LASIK
LASIK surgery involves the use of technological advancements to correct refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other eye conditions. This procedure is fast, effective, and has a quick recovery period. Most patients notice results by the next day. That means you’ll get back to doing the things you love—now with clear, burden-free vision. To learn more about LASIK and your vision, call Optical Expressions today at (602) 254-3169.
Advantages Of Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is one of the most common ways to treat cataracts. Using advanced technology and implants called IOLs, cataract surgery can be the difference between a life of bad vision and living with visual clarity. This procedure is quick (takes about thirty minutes to an hour) and improves your vision and quality of life. To learn more about cataract surgery, call us at (602) 254-3169.
