GW Eye Associates Inc, An Optometric Corporation is an affiliate of TLC Laser Eye Center; this allows us to offer laser vision correction services, including LASIK, IntraLaseÂ®, PRK, and implantable contact lenses. These surgeries are offered for patients who are unable to wear contact lenses anymore because of factors such as excessive astigmatism, lifestyle, or dry eyes. If you think laser eye surgery may meet your needs, contact our office for a consultation. We’ll schedule testing, including a measure of your corneal thickness, and analyze your prescription, goals, and lifestyle to determine the best fit for you.
We're also an affiliate of TLC Laser Eye Center here in La Jolla, and as an
affiliate we are able to offer all the services of laser vision correction
that TLC offers, such as Lasik, intra Lasik, PRK and implantable contact
Why do we offer laser vision correction when we already sell glasses and
contact lens in our office? People oftentimes ask us that question, but
the answer is there are many patients that are unable to wear contact lens
anymore because of dry eyes or because of excessive astigmatism or due to
their lifestyle. For example, I have a patient that is a lifeguard and she
has a very high prescription, and she's unable to continue to wear her
contact lens and do her job. We recommended laser eye surgery for her and
she's been great ever since.
If laser eye surgery meets some of your needs, then we invite you to call
and make a consultation at our office so we can determine whether or not
you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery. Some of the tests that
we'll perform would be a corneal topographer. We'll do a pachymetry reading
which is a corneal thickness measurement as well as analyze your
prescription, your goals, and your lifestyle.
