FAQs

Q: How do I know if I'm a candidate for LASIK?

This is a very commonly asked question. We recommend you come in for a FREE consultation in which Dr. Singh and her staff will discuss your unique situation to help determine if LASIK is really the best option for you. At the Castleman Eye Center, our goal is to provide you the procedure that is right for you!

Q: What kind of laser do you use?

Castleman Eye Center uses the most advanced technology available in the United States, the VISX Star S4 ActiveTrak Excimer Laser System that incorporates wavefront technology, eye tracking system and iris registration to insure you are receiving the most technologically-advanced treatment.

Q: What will my vision be like the day after surgery?

Many patients notice improved vision immediately after the procedure. Most patients are functional without their glasses or contacts at the one day post operative exam. Patients continue to see a gradual increase in their visual acuity during the first five to seven days after the procedure.

Q: Do you have 0% financing plans available?

Q: Can both eyes be done at the same time?

Because of the advanced technology associated with LASIK, both eyes are almost always treated at the same time.

Q: Do the results last?

LASIK surgery is considered to be a permanent procedure. Some patients experience regression and need a touch-up. This is usually determined within the first year and is provided at no charge during this time. However, LASIK will not prevent any age related conditions such as presbyopia or cataracts, and they would be treated in their normal matter.

Q: Does LASIK eliminate glasses worn for both distance and near (bifocals)?

LASIK surgery can eliminate glasses worn for distance and near however the procedure is called monovision LASIK. Monovision LASIK means that your dominant eye is corrected for distance vision and your non-dominant eye would be corrected for near vision leaving you with one eye for distance and one eye used for reading. Dr. Singh and her staff will go over your options and even allow you to simulate what monovision would be like for you during your FREE consultation.

Q: How much work will I miss?

Most patients return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. The surgical counselor can give you more details on what you can expect when you come in for your FREE consultation.
