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 Omni Vision - Potranco in Far West Side 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 Omni Vision - Potranco eye doctor.

Very helpful and quick. The doctor was super knowledgeable and actually wanted to teach me what was ... going on with my eyes. that was a first for me. I will for sure come back. My only small complaint and its not the staff or doctors fault is i am still waiting on my glasses to come in. 2-3 weeks is a long time.

Great experience. Omni Vision had last minute appointment availability, even when I needed to resche... dule the night before. Their on-line scheduling is also very user-friendly. The best part is the staff. From the front office staff to the optometrist...they are professional, courteous, friendly and have outstanding customer service. They treat you with the upmost respect, explain everything in layman's terms amd make sure your needs are met. Thank you for the great service!

Omni Vision @ the 9218 Potranco location is my preferred location. All of the staff are friendly, ki... nd & informative, we never felt rushed, or uncomfortable. Too often you enter a facility for appointments & get the sense the employees are angry just by the sight of another human beings presence. So Bravo to Omni Vision for selecting great staff. We met Dr. Sundip Patel for the first time & again exceptional experience. Too often we leave reviews when the experience is unsatisfactory & forget to honor ppl when they do a great job. Dr. Patel was engaging, informative, explained the process & objective; he took his time throughout the examination without flipping the settings so fast you become confused what is what; too often I leave my eye appointments knowing I guessed my way through the exam, then your contacts & glasses are terrible bc you & your doctor wasn’t on the same page. So I appreciated the unorthodox explanations & suggestions in maintaining our vision. Great job!

The military sent me off-base for my annual exam and I’m so glad I found this place!! Dr. Garza wa... s amazing! She was all business at first, but she really took her time explaining why I was having certain vision issues and she gave me several options when choosing how to deal with them. I’ve been wearing glasses my whole life and this was a Top 3 exam because there was so much education. I have a lot of questions, if you just wanna get in and out, I’m sure she could do that too! When she finished with me, she handed me off to George who was also patient with me as I asked 1,001 questions. I didn’t get the technician’s name who helped me out at the beginning, but she was very kind too! Just be aware that there’s only a 5-minute grace period, so don’t be late!!

first time here and will be returning. Dr. Marquez is very thorough, and extremely patient. the staf... f is very nice. I'm very picky and chose like 6 different lenses to try on. but the staff grabbed one for me and i ended up with the one he selected. He just knew which one would work for me. i left there knowing i came to the right vision place. great selection on frame!
- Jan. 29, 2023
Dr.Marquez is worth the wait. He is professional, patient and kind. I never had an eye doctor explai... n eye health to me so well.

Excellent service and staff. Highly recommend it.

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 Omni Vision - Potranco 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 Omni Vision - Potranco in Far West Side today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.
