Lasik Laser Surgery
If you want the sharpest vision possible after laser vision correction, a procedure you definitely should consider is custom wavefront LASIK.

Coastal Vision Center Lasik Surgery

Vision correction comes in many different forms and can cause you to have questions about which is best for your eyes. Coastal Vision Center is here to help clear up some of your questions you may have about the LASIK procedure. We’ll go over when to consider LASIK, the benefits, and how to choose a surgeon.

What is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK surgery is typically a good option for those who are nearsighted, astigmatic or farsighted. This eye surgery is a surgical procedure that utilizes an excimer laser to reshape to the corneal surface. This will correct your vision by enabling light to focus on the retina sharply.

LASIK is a highly effective procedure and very safe. About 600,000 people undergo LASIK surgery every year. Some people are better candidates for other types of laser vision correction, such as Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK). Your eye surgeon will determine whether LASIK or PRK is right for you.

 

How Can LASIK Help Me?

There are many benefits to this eye surgery that make it a great option for those with vision problems. Ultimately you should speak to your eye care professional first before you make any drastic decisions regarding your eyes. However, it does help to do some research on your own.
Here are a few benefits you gain from having a LASIK procedure done:

  • Immediate Results
  • 24-hour Recovery
  • A Permanent Solution
  • Reduced Costs Long Term (No more glasses or Contacts)
  • No Pain

About 85 percent of patients eyesight is corrected back to 20/20 vision while 95 percent have their vision improve to 20/40 or better.

 

Guide To Choosing The Best Surgeon

Finding the right surgeon to perform your LASIK procedure is vital to the success of your surgery and the overall process. There are numerous factors to take into consideration before committing to a certain specialist. These are a few points to consider:

  • Before you step into their office, you should research the doctor’s experience and certifications. It is important that they are board certified in addition to having their licensing. That is because you can be sure that they’ve gone through specific training for the field and are continuing education that relates to eye surgery.
  • The surgeon’s bedside manner is really important. You want to feel comfortable with him or her and feel that they want to answer all the questions or concerns you have. If they aren’t making sure you know all of the risk and benefits, we recommend you start looking somewhere else.
  • Find out from friends and family who have already gone through the procedure for recommendations. You will be able to get personal experiences as a way to get more information on the doctor and witness their results.
  • Although how many procedures the surgeon performs isn’t the only indicator it is still important. You want a surgeon experienced in LASIK and all forms of laser vision correction.

We believe that these steps will help narrow down your search when looking for your perfect surgeon.

After years of traveling back and forth to South Carolina from my home on Amelia Island for my twice yearly eye exams because I trusted my doctor so much I finally decided to make an appointment in Fernandina Beach. I did and had my first visit with Dr Herron at the Coastal Vision Center.The office staff were super nice and efficient and Dr Herron was great. Very professional . Not only do I have a new Doctor who ( whom ? ) I trust I have also saved myself two 800 mile round trips to SC every year.PS ,The office area and exam rooms/equipment were immaculate.read more

I can't say enough good things about this entire office and staff! We were on vacation and my daughter had an ant in her eye and experienced severe swelling. We called in a panic at 4 p.m. and the front office was so nice and accommodating and said they could see her that day. When we arrived, we were greeted by a caring front office staff and there was little waiting time before she was examined by the doctor and medical staff and given a prescription that worked like a charm! From start to finish, everyone was friendly and professional. We are truly thankful for the care she received and would highly recommend Coastal Vision Center.read more

Professional service and staff. I have been twice with different doctors and both were very thorough and efficient. The wait was a little long the second visit, but the place was buzzing, so very understandable. Eyeglass frames are a bit expensive as most are at any optician outside of Walmart, but I don't mind paying a little more for higher quality and better fashion.read more

I am so pleased with Dr Stackhouse and the entire staff at Coastal Vision Center. Everyone is friendly, welcoming, professional and helpful. I have always been seen on time, everything explained as we go through the eye exams and solutions are recommended. Everything is done efficiently and easily. And I want to mention that everyone was friendly and personable. They made me feel comfortable about a procedure I needed and their knowledge and professionalism made it easy to trust that all would be well. Indeed all is well...and my eyesight is 20/20 again. I will definitely be seeing these great folks again for my yearly check up.read more

Dr McClane rocks! He is the perfect doc, quick at figuring out what is going on gives excellent care, it’s kind focused, professional and he has a really great staff. His associate, and intern on ophthalmology was stellar, I hope he keeps her! They have a fabulous assortment of glasses they are not pushy and reasonably priced. Now if only they would open up the swimming pool to patients… lol! Great group recommend them highlyread more
