If your eyes need LASIK, PRK, or surgery for glaucoma or cataracts, have your procedure co-managed by your trusted, independently owned eye care team at Washington Eye Doctors.
Eye Surgery Options
There are a few different procedures that can correct glaucoma, fix refractive errors, or enhance your vision. For refractive surgeries, we work with some of the area’s top surgeons to offer two of the most common and trusted treatments, LASIK and PRK. If you have cataracts, we can connect you to trusted ophthalmologists who are highly skilled in cataract surgery. We also team with some of the area’s foremost glaucoma specialists to navigate any potential surgeries due to complications from the disease.
LASIK can correct myopia, hyperopia, and some forms of astigmatism. The procedure involves creating a small incision in the cornea, lifting it up, and using a laser to gently reshape the eye’s curvature. LASIK is pain-free and requires little downtime.
This surgery is an excellent option for patients who have thinner corneas or dry eye disease. PRK involves removing the top part of the cornea and then using a laser to reshape it. This procedure can also reduce your need for glasses and contacts.
This serious eye disease is commonly known as “the silent thief of sight” because you often won’t notice its symptoms until it’s too late. Our team can identify signs of glaucoma during a comprehensive eye exam and help co-manage any necessary surgeries, including minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS).
Since there is no “cure” for cataracts, surgery is the only ultimate way to return you to clear sight. This procedure involves removing your eye’s cloudy lens and replacing it with an IOL. We’re experienced in co-managing cataract surgery and following up to monitor your vision.
