What is an Eye Surgery?
An eye surgery refers to any surgical treatment focused on improving your vision and health. Phoenix ophthalmologists recommend a surgical procedure when your eyes are healthy enough for the procedure and it may help slow or stop the changes to your vision.
Generally, a Phoenix eye surgery uses a laser to address specific problems or changes with your eyes. LASIK treatments are a common type of surgical procedure for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. You may also benefit from treatments designed to help farsightedness or a surgical implant.
Surgical Procedures Offered by Our Phoenix Ophthalmologists
The procedures we offer at Eye Doctors of Arizona depend on your situation and needs. Generally, we recommend LASIK surgery for nearsightedness or similar problems with your vision. We may recommend more complex treatments when your eyes require an artificial lens implant.
The specific recommendations depend on your situation and needs. The eye specialist in our clinic will evaluate your situation and diagnose the underlying concern to see if you are a candidate for any surgical procedure. Generally, eye surgery is safe and easy with little downtime.
When to Consider Eye Surgery in Phoenix
Eye surgery in Phoenix is a decision you make after ophthalmologists in Phoenix recommend the treatment. We usually evaluate your eyes and the health of your eyes before suggesting any surgical procedures.
Usually, the treatment is best when you notice significant visual changes and your eyes are healthy enough for the treatment. You do not want to go through the treatment if you have certain chronic health conditions. We do not recommend eye surgery if you have an auto-immune condition, an immunodeficiency concern or if you take medications for certain health concerns. We may also recommend alternative therapies and treatments if you have multiple eye health conditions.
When you have unstable vision for any reason, such as pregnancy or due to a medication, we may recommend waiting until your vision stabilizes before considering surgical procedures.
