Many people are interested in LASIK. But everyone’s eyes are different and LASIK may or may not be right for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, we will be happy to assist you in picking the right surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you. The communication between your optometrist and your eye surgeon is crucial and can make the difference between a successful LASIK result and a mediocre one.
Outcome of LASIK surgery-
After the surgery people often say that they could see well the very first day. Most people have functional vision in 24-48 hours. Although this is true in some cases, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Dr. Deal follows all LASIK patients through their post-operative period to maintain good ocular health. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery, continues to improve for the first few weeks or even months. For more details on LASIK please refer to EyeCyclopedia™ or www.tlcvision.com.

State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Treatment may include medications or supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor you recovery will be scheduled as needed.
Not only do we check for eye diseases, but if you have been diagnosed previously with diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, ocular complications from diabetes, or other special needs Dr. Deal will tailor a treatment plan for your specific situation. We can effectively manage these conditions and prescribe the appropriate medications or, when necessary, arrange for surgery. If you would like information on any of these eye diseases, be sure to visit our EyeCyclopedia for detailed information and photographs that may help you to better understand you eye condition.
For many people, especially children, reading and hand-eye coordination tasks can be very difficult. The act of sight not only includes ones eyes, but it also includes the neurological activity that processes the visual information. Sight plays an important role in the learning of various activities. Sight is the steering mechanism; it is the main activity that provides feedback regarding what really is happening. Please allow our office to be and important part of you vision health.
People who have lost eyesight due to injuries or eye disease need special types of products to help them function as independently as possible. We offer a full range of these products through our office. Our paraoptometric staff is trained to demonstrate the use of some of these devices. They range all the way from a simple hand magnifier to a closed circuit TV system.
In addition, we can direct those who have low vision problems to products that will help them carry on the day-to-day tasks that they need to perform. In some cases we can set up a program for the low vision patient with the National Library of Congress to receive "books on tapes", which is a service for the blind.
Seeing clearly is not enough. For many people, reading and hand-eye coordination tasks can be very difficult. The act of sight not only includes ones eyes, but it also includes the neurological activity that processes the visual information. Throwing a ball or skiing down a hill, is a learned activity; to do either well takes practice. Those who do it best are those who started learning at the earliest age. Sight plays an important role in the learning of these activities. Sight is the steering mechanism; it is the main activity that provides feedback regarding what really is happening. We provide Vision Therapy to help individuals learn how to process visual information and develop better hand-eye coordination skills. Please see our related sites page or click on the home vision therapy link to learn more about one of our new options for treatment and management.
