Laser Eye Surgery Consultation in Colorado Springs

What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery is a refractive surgery that involves reshaping the surface of the cornea, correcting the way light refracts into your eye so that it falls on the retina and provides clear vision. For a majority of patients, the recovery time is quick, so it is an increasingly popular option for vision correction in adults, offering freedom from glasses and contacts.

Consultation, Surgery, & Post-Surgery Care

At Bettner Vision, we offer laser eye surgery consultations, post-surgery care, and take care of all the details in between.

If you’d like to explore the option of laser vision correction, please make an appointment with our team. Not only will we thoroughly test your eyes to ensure you are a suitable candidate, but we will also explain the procedure, the benefits, and the risks to ensure you have a full understanding of the process.

If you are a good candidate and choose to move forward with refractive surgery, we will make an appointment for you with one of our trusted ophthalmology partners who will perform the surgery. Some of the clinics we partner with are Spivack Vision Center in Denver, and the Wright Eye Center and Skyline Vision Center both located in Colorado Springs. We will work with them to co-manage your care, ensuring that communication is clear, and your experience is as seamless as possible.

The most popular form of laser eye surgery, LASIK, also known as laser in-situ keratomileusis, involves making a paper-thin flap in the cornea. A laser is then used to reshape the corneal tissue to the desired correction, and the corneal flap is then replaced.

Generally, the whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes. It is usual for patients to experience blurry or distorted vision immediately after surgery, however this should clear up within 24 hours of your procedure.

Typically, your eyesight will stabilize within a few days. For some people, eyesight returns immediately, and for others, it can take up to a week to fully normalize.

YAG laser surgery, also known as posterior capsulotomy, is laser surgery to improve vision after cataract surgery. If you have received cataract surgery, your surgeon would have replaced your natural lens with a clear, artificial intraocular lens.

For some patients, a haze may develop on the membrane behind this intraocular lens, affecting vision. YAG laser surgery is a quick laser procedure that makes a small opening in the lens, restoring clear vision.

After your surgery, we will schedule a series of follow up appointments with you so that we can monitor your recovery closely and address any questions or concerns you may have during the healing process.

It is important that you continue to have annual eye exams to monitor the long-term results of your procedure and the health of your eyes.

Our Specialty Services

At Bettner Vision, our keratoconus and scleral lens institute specializes in diagnosing and treating patients with keratoconus – a progressive eye disorder that results in the thinning of the cornea.

Keratoconus & Scleral Lens Institute

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that specializes in eye anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye.

Ophthalmology

Vision therapy, sometimes known as orthoptics, is akin to physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is a non-surgical, customizable set of exercises and activities that aim to resolve symptoms that interfere with visual abilities, motor skills, and brain function.

Pediatric & Binocular Vision Therapy

Our eyes and brain are inseparably linked. Impulses continuously travelling back and forth via the optic nerve ultimately result in what we see and how we see it.
