At 20/20 Institute-LASIK, we believe there are things every patient should know before having LASIK surgery. We’ll deliver the whole truth to you about your eyes and your probability for success in plain, everyday language.
We also want to make sure you understand the FDA recommended information about potential risks associated with LASIK. This site is for information only and it cannot and should not replace professional medical advice and a consultation with a licensed doctor.
Here are some things we want you to understand before you decide to have a LASIK procedure.
- Not everyone makes a good LASIK candidate
- There is a possibility that your vision could change over time
- With LASIK, there are risks and side effects just like any other surgery
- No one can offer you a 100% guarantee that you will have 20/20 vision
An independent doctor at 20/20 Institute-LASIK must determine that a patient is a medical candidate for LASIK to qualify for our Pledge promise. We cannot guarantee medical outcomes. Risks and complications are possible with any medical procedure. Be sure to carefully read the informed consent document your surgeon provides you. 20/20 vision does NOT necessarily equal perfect vision. LASIK does NOT guarantee a person will not need eyeglasses for some visual situations, now or sometime in the future.
Full terms and conditions will be provided under separate 20/20 Institute-LASIK written agreements. Patient testimonials are the opinion of that patient about their individual experience.
All doctors and surgeons are independent contractors. Nothing herein is intended to imply that 20/20 Institute-LASIK provides medical services. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists have agreed to provide refractive surgery services under a co-management relationship for all 20/20 Institute-LASIK patients.
Not everyone will be “glasses-free” forever. All eyes mature with age, and eventually you might need either reading glasses or another procedure to deal with changes in your distance or near vision.
- Not everyone can achieve 20/20 vision. Talk with your LASIK eye surgeon about your current vision imperfections to determine whether 20/20 vision is a realistic goal for you.
- Re-treatment, enhancement or refinement procedures might be necessary to maintain your best-uncorrected vision. It is not uncommon for patients to experience some degree of dry eye after the procedure. For the vast majority of patients this is a temporary condition (usually 30-60 days).
- For optimal results, you will need to stick to an aftercare regimen and attend scheduled follow-up visits.
