Columbus and Central Ohio Lasik Eye Surgery Services
LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery in the United States. This extraordinary 10-minute procedure allows people to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses and contact lenses. While there are alternative treatments, LASIK continues to be our most popular procedure two decades after its introduction.
Choosing an Experienced LASIK Surgeon
Almost every day we have patients tell us how LASIK is the best thing they have done for themselves, and it is exciting and rewarding to be a part of their experience. If you have considered having LASIK eye surgery, it is likely that you are interested in the safety, results, comfort, and cost of the procedure, as well as how to choose an experienced LASIK surgeon.
With two centers in Newark and Columbus, patients from across Ohio and West Virginia can take advantage of LASIK eye surgery. Contact Bloomberg Eye Center for a complimentary vision correction evaluation and consultation.
The LASIK procedure was simpler than I thought. Now I see 20/20. Bloomberg Eye Center made me feel at ease. I found out how fortunate we are to have Bloomberg Eye Center in our backyard.
Your Lasik Experience at the Bloomberg Eye Center
After your initial phone call, the staff at one of our facilities in the Columbus, Ohio, area will schedule you for a free LASIK eye surgery evaluation and consultation. During this time, you will receive a complete eye exam from one of our doctors which will take about two hours.
What to expect at your LASIK consultation
- Your pupil size is recorded and your eyes are dilated.
- Your prescription is checked before and after dilation.
- Corneal mapping is performed, and the thickness of your cornea is measured.
- The doctor examines the outer and inner parts of your eyes.
- We review your medical history and discuss laser vision correction options with you.
- One of our friendly LASIK counselors will discuss scheduling, pricing and financing, and answer any other questions you might have.
- If you choose to schedule your surgery at this time, you are given a date and a pre-op information packet.
LASIK Surgery: Before, during and after
Whether you are a local resident of Columbus, Ohio or from Kentucky or West Virginia, it is important that when you arrive for your LASIK eye surgery you are accompanied by someone who can drive you home after the procedure. You should plan to be at our facility for about an hour, unless other testing is still required. Most people are given a Valium during this time to help you sleep when you return home. You are then directed to the appropriate laser suite. The procedure itself takes about 10 minutes for both eyes. All you are required to do is lie on your back and focus on a blinking light. Most people experience very little discomfort because of anesthetic eye drops that are applied prior to surgery. After the procedure, a clear shield is placed over your eyes and post-op care is reviewed with you again.
How soon will I be able to see after LASIK?
Most people can see well enough to get around on their own immediately. Vision improves over the following hours, and almost all patients have good functional vision by the next day.
We have helped thousands of people in Columbus, Central Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky eliminate or reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
