Post-operative care is equally important and includes several post-operative examinations for up to one-year after your initial surgery. During these examinations, we monitor your progress to determine if there is a need to further sharpen your vision. Any vision enhancements deemed medically necessary by Dr. Sabripour, and which are visually beneficial with no significant risks, are included during post-operative care.
A refraction assessment helps your doctor determine a corrective lens prescription that will give you the sharpest vision. For patients with certain types of insurance, refraction can be followed by on-site dispensing of glasses. Those choosing contact lenses will be fitted accurately and will obtain appropriate education in the safe use of contacts and in general eye care.
What to expect from an eye exam
An eye exam is one of the best ways to protect your vision because it can detect eye problems at their earliest stages, when they're most treatable. Regular eye exams give your eye care professional a chance to help you correct or adapt to vision changes. We can give you expert tips on reducing eyestrain and caring for your eyes.
The eye exam usually begins with Dr. Sabripour asking about your medical history and any vision problems you might be experiencing.
Next the doctor makes a complete check using light to ensure the exterior and interior parts of your eyes are functioning correctly.
Finally, the doctor measures your visual acuity, assesses your need for glasses and/or contact lenses.
How should you prepare for an eye exam?
Bring in old glasses, sunglasses, old prescriptions of glasses and/or contacts. Be prepared to be dilated; dilation will cause your vision to be sensitive to light and it is always best to come with a designated driver. If you're visiting a new eye doctor or if you're having your first eye exam, expect questions about your vision history. Your answers to these questions help your eye doctor understand your risk of eye disease and vision problems. Be prepared to give specific information, including:
Are you having any eye problems now?
Do you wear glasses or contacts now? If so, are you satisfied with them?
Have you had any eye problems in the past?
Are you taking any medications?
Do you have any allergies to medications, food or other substances?
Has anyone in your family had eye problems, such as cataracts or glaucoma?
