Pre- & Post-operative Care

Laser eye surgery is a popular way to lower your reliance on glasses and contact lenses. This surgery involves reshaping the cornea to correct refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism

While we don’t perform surgeries at Bettner Vision, we can help you throughout the surgery process. Our team offers laser eye surgery consultations and post-operative care. Book an appointment, and we can determine your eligibility for laser eye surgery. 

What Is Laser Eye Surgery? 

Laser eye surgery is a refractive surgery used to reshape the cornea, improving how it refracts light entering your eye. Reshaping the cornea causes light to fall on the retina, helping improve your vision. Many patients have a quick recovery time, making laser eye surgery a popular vision correction option for adults. 

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Many types of laser eye surgery exist today to help correct refractive errors. At Bettner Vision, we conduct consultations for LASIK and YAG laser surgery. 

Laser in-situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is one of the most popular forms of laser eye surgery. It involves making a small flap in the cornea to access the inner layers. Your surgeon then uses a specialized laser to reshape the corneal tissue before returning the flap to its original location, where it heals.

This procedure takes less than 30 minutes to complete. It’s common to experience blurry or distorted vision immediately after surgery, but this typically clears up within 24 hours. Your eyesight will stabilize within a few days, but the recovery period can vary from person to person.

YAG laser surgery, also known as posterior capsulotomy, is laser surgery for improving 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 procedure used to make a small opening in the lens to restore clear vision.

How We Help During the Surgical Process

While we don’t perform your surgery, we’re there throughout the surgical process. We provide laser eye surgery consultations, post-surgical care and handle all the details in between. Our team works with our trusted ophthalmology partners to co-manage your care. 

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’re an ideal candidate for laser eye surgery, we’ll book an appointment with one of our trusted ophthalmology partners. Some of the clinics we work with are Spivack Vision Center in Denver, The Wright Eye Center, and Skyline Vision Center, both located in Colorado Springs.
