Annual Eye Exams are Important – Even After LASIK

Many LASIK patients ask if they will ever need to see their optometrist again after their LASIK procedure. After all, most LASIK patients will no longer require glasses or contact lenses. However, while your vision may be 20/20 or better following your LASIK procedure, it is still important to visit your eye doctor once a year for a routine annual checkup to maintain the health of your eyes.

In addition to assessing eyesight and prescribing eye glasses and/or contacts, optometrists are trained to look for eye diseases and conditions that can threaten vision and overall health, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and other eye diseases. Serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma, often have no symptoms at all until permanent vision loss occurs. A yearly visit to your eye doctor is your best defense against possible future debilitating eye diseases.

Our LASIK surgeons, Dr. Mark L. Mayo and Dr. Edward C. Wade have incredible confidence in the results achieved by their patients and stand behind their work.  Every patient who chooses Eye Center of Texas for their LASIK surgery is covered under our “Limited Lifetime Warranty”.

ECT warranty includes:

If a LASIK patient’s vision worsens anytime within the first year and if treatment is deemed medically appropriate by the surgeon ECT will cover the cost of an enhancement.  If a patients vision worsens after the first year and if treatment is deemed medically appropriate by the surgeon, ECT will offer an enhancement for a reduced fee*.  Warranty eligibility is easy for you to maintain by simply having an annual eye exam with an optometrist within our referral network.

*please refer to your paperwork for reduced fee amount.
