The “Eyecare Tip of the Month” is an ongoing series designed to draw upon the experiences and expertise of the local Doctors of Optometry who practice throughout Kentucky. This month’s tip is brought to you by Dr. Karoline Munson of Frankfort Vision Center in Frankfort, KY.
“Having LASIK is a life changing event! It can take a person who has been dependent upon glasses or contacts for longer than they can remember to visual freedom. It is important to remember that while your new vision is fantastic, your eye health is still very important. While LASIK does change your vision, it does not change your risk of sight threatening eye diseases like glaucoma, mascular degeneration or cataracts. These common eye diseases can be treated if detected early. An annual eye exam by your optometrist will ensure that your eyes are healthy both inside and out. This is the easiest and best way to protect your investment in LASIK by ensuring your eyes are in the best possible health for many years to come.”
