At Harbison Eye Care, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. Our Optometrists offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other 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 uses the latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Harbison Eye Care, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. The Optometrist performs a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and visual needs. A current exam is important in determining if you are a candidate for LASIK and if there are any other factors that may affect the surgical results.
Once deemed a good candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the surgical center we work with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgical options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a candidate. We will be in correspondence with the surgical center regarding your evaluation and procedure. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at 267-360-6944 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Philadelphia office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the next six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Our doctors are very experienced in working with pre- and post-operative patients and will answer any questions that you have along the way.

Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have great advantages. Patients who play sports, have allergies, or simply want to be able to see without glasses or contacts can all benefit from LASIK or other refractive surgeries.
