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 Advanced EyeCare - Raytown in Raytown 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 Advanced EyeCare - Raytown eye doctor.

I can never say enough good things about this office! I have been going to the eye doctor for over ... 40 years. Dr. Krause is the bomb! I have never had anyone sit and explain every detail with plastic eyeball parts and pictures and diagrams and internet information like she does. They are consistently courteous! They have gotten me in ASAP when we felt like it was an emergency with my retina history. LOVE it here!!

It had been a while since I went to an eye place with such courtesy, I love the attention I received... and the professionalism.

Excellent service, super nice staff, always takes extra special care and they’re very courteous. V... ery clean and cautious during the pandemic. They wait for you at the door, open the door for you so you don’t have to touch anything, they take your temp and give you antibacterial hand sanitizer before you come in and sit down. And they only scheduled people spread out so there was no more than two people in the waiting room at a time. They cleaned down all of their equipment while I was still there and right after I used it. I've been having a lot of problems with my vision, allergies, dry eyes amongst other things and they were very generous with different samples so I could try some drops and contacts out before they confirmed my prescription or before I would actually have to pay for it. They were waiting at the door when I was done open the door for me so I could walk out without having to touch it as well.

If you want an unbeatable experience, look no further than Dr. Julie! She is knowledgeable and wonde... rful all around. Let me tell you a quick story about some contacts she recommended for me and how they already proved to be an upgrade after having them for just a couple of weeks! I was playing indoor soccer as a Goalkeeper and the ball was kicked at me from about four yards away and it hit me square in the eye. I saved it and when ref asked if I was okay and I said that it would have hurt more if the ball went in. But my contact miraculously stayed in! There chance that would have happened with my old contacts. Thank you so much to Dr. Julie and her team! Book your appointment at Advanced Eyecare today!

I live 2minutes from this office and my lens popped out my frames mid-workday while cleaning them (... I haven't had these frames for more than 2wks) and I panicked because my Optometrist is all the way in Overland Park, KS. I immediately drove to this location on a prayer and pocket full of hope that they could fix my frames and they did! Thank you so much to the Ladies at the front desk who assisted me and whoever fixed my frames inside. This office is close to home, so I will be switching my family to this office based on location and my experience with them. True lifesavers and I look forward to doing business with you all! Thank you again!

Dr. L was amazing! And Jennifer was very nice and helpful when picking out my glasses! Would recomme... nd.

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 Advanced EyeCare - Raytown 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 Advanced EyeCare - Raytown in Raytown today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.
