The only way to know for sure if LASIK is right for your eyes is through a comprehensive LASIK examination. Wright Vision Center provides a free 2-hour LASIK Evaluation that includes scans of your eye to map your exact vision characteristics.
Evaluating the Health of Your Eyes
No two eyes are the same. The thickness of your cornea, the health of your eye, the amount of refractive error and the effects of aging all play a part in determining whether your eyes are well suited for LASIK. Dr. Paul Wright won’t perform LASIK on applicants who do not have the right vision characteristics to support a successful LASIK outcome.
What Happens at the Free Screening?
The initial free screening includes:
- A brief medical history of your eyes and eye health.
- Corneal topography exam which maps the contour and shape of your cornea to determine your cornea’s condition.
- Pupilometry exam to allow us to measure pupil size in dim and bright light. Accurate measurements of your pupil along with a custom surgery plan will significantly reduce the chance of halos and glare associated with night driving.
- Wavefront diagnostics to create a detailed 3D diagram of your entire optical system.
During this initial screening you will also meet with one of our refractive counselors to learn more about vision correction options, financing options, the technology we use and to answer any questions you may have. Dr. Wright will review the data collected to determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK surgery in Rapid City. If Dr. Wright feels you have a good chance for improved vision, we will contact you to arrange the next appropriate step which may be a 2-hour complete refractive exam with Dr. Wright. In some cases, the Wavefront diagnosis may indicate that surgery is not advisable at all or that another vision option is recommended. The purpose of our LASIK evaluations is to find out if you’re a good candidate. Then it’s up to you to decide if you want to proceed with this amazing procedure.
