Refractive Eye Surgery

At Weigel Family Eye Care, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our doctors offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing refractive eye surgery (i.e. LASIK, PRK, SMILE, lens exchange/implant) or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.

Evaluation and Referral

LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Weigel Family Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK or other refractive surgeries. The doctors perform a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for refractive surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.

Once the doctors have performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for refractive surgery, you will be given a referral to the surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK or any refractive surgery, call us at 812-663-2480 to schedule a consultation.

Post-Operative Care

Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Greensburg office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our doctors are experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call 812-663-2480 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or contact us.
