Certain health problems can affect your vision. Dr. Armstrong specializes in the management and treatment of ocular diseases including dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. Patients with health problems, especially diabetes, should get their eyes examined every year due to the increased risk of blindness.
LASIK Surgery Pre- and Post-Operative Care
While we do not perform LASIK surgery here, we work closely with several local eye surgeons to oversee, coordinate, and direct you through the entire process.
Despite the fact that LASIK surgery has become routine, eye surgery is still a serious procedure and not for everyone. You begin by undergoing a critical pre-selection screening process with us, to determine if you are a good candidate. General guidelines for LASIK candidates are as follows:
- Your eyes must be healthy.
- You must be 18 years old or older.
- You must have stable vision for at least two years.
- You should not be pregnant or nursing.
- Some degenerative or autoimmune diseases are disqualifiers.
After your LASIK surgery, you return to our offices for several follow-up visits to determine your eye health, vision, and satisfaction with the results.
