Optometrists are eye doctors who specialize in measuring a patient's eye glasses prescription as well as binocular vision problems and primary eye care. Their skills are extremely important to a LASIK surgery specialist as they have an in-depth understanding of the needs of their patients and are highly trained in eye care anatomy and optics (2 very important aspects of LASIK eye surgery).
Optometrists are highly respected for providing what's best for their patients and can maintain a strong co-management relationship with a LASIK eye surgeon that enhances the total experience of the patient and obtains the best possible results.
Turner Eye Institute values our optometric network highly. They provide vital eye care and demonstrate expertise in patient care. Optometrists are often able to develop much closer relationships with their patients through long-term dependable care. LASIK eye surgery, on the other hand, is a one-time procedure. Without the invaluable assistance of the primary eye care provider (the optometrist), patients might feel that they are being placed into the hands of a relative stranger.
