Pre and Post Operative Care for
Eye Surgery Patients
No one knows your eyes better than your eye doctor.
That's why the doctors at Professional Eyecare excel at providing pre and post operative care for refractive surgeries. In conjunction, our doctors and Talley Eye Institute have changed the lives of thousands of patients! In preparation for the surgery, we'll perform a complete workup that includes a general eye exam, refraction dilation, and OCT retinal imaging and analysis. We send our results to the surgeon, who will use our workup and their own exams to create a personalized plan for your surgery. Following the surgery, we provide follow-up appointments to ensure that everything is healing well.
Talley Eye Institute is a provider of cataract surgeries, LASIK, high-quality retinal, corneal, and Laser Vision Correction.
