Common Questions and Answers about Vision insurance lasik


Avatar m tn but if they are paying, long-term wouldnt they be ahead, assuming lasik surgery, rather than the monthly $$ for contacts? is his vision post lasik as good as currently using the contacts. or is there some vision loss, offset by the conveniene of not contacts/glasses.
Avatar m tn had cataract surgery 2 days ago on left eye due to vitrectomy done for macular hole last year, 2 hours after surgery Dr examed my eye & aske if i ever had lasik, I had lasik 15 years ago, she said she would have calculated lens differently for cataract, what does this mean, my eye kind of blurry, she mentioned possible exchanging lens or laser, my next appointment is in two weeks, can this be corrected, would my insurance pay,
280369 tn?1316702041 If it is solely a cost factor, you might consider vision insurance. Most vision plans replace lens every year, frames every 2 years. It certainly is a cost saver for me in purchasing my glasses.
Avatar n tn I had lasik surgery twice 8 years ago and now the cataract surgery. My vision is as bad or worse than before I had the lasik. My doctor said my insurance might not cover replacing the wrong lens he put in so he is looking at either doing lasik again or laser surgery to correct the nearsightedness. Is this a good procedure to do? My eye is still flickering also.
Avatar n tn I'll throw in some other things you might want to consider. There has been a new Crystalens model introduced every year or two, and my impression is that the newer model is always a big improvement over what used to be. It seems likely that there will continue to be major improvements in the technology of accommodating IOLs (what your doctor suggested using for your "clear" option).
Avatar m tn t seem to get a straight answer on this, I did not have anything like this before the surgery, my vision is like being under water I was told to take ketoralac as a substitute for acular as my insurance did not cover the acular, went for a second opinion and this lasik surgeon agreed with CME, and thought it was better to use prednisolone along with nevanac, so my question is this permanent or will in most cases it will get better soon I hope this is terrible to live with one eye.
Avatar f tn The Pentacam is good insurance in this situation since it can give very accurate readings despite previous LASIK - but I still tell my patients that there is a significant chance they will have to wear reading and distance glasses after surgery and also about a 1 in 10 chance of having to change out the IOL due to a problem with proper lens calcuation and a resultant unexpected refractive result.
Avatar n tn Are you saying that the light show in my eye, the loss of my night vision, the cloudiness and the halos might be fixable with PRK/LASIK or LRIs? Pardon my redundancy but I am really scared. I would gladly come to California for treatment.
Avatar n tn Yes lasik on the reading eye is one option. Waiting 3 months is not likely to be a problem and will give you longer to see if you can adjust.
Avatar f tn I told my doctor what I would like to achieve is the best possible distance vision and the best possible night vision. I do not mind wearing reading glasses. I had monovision with Lasik and would like to do the same with the cataract surgery. The plans was to have good distance vision in my right I and then put a Crystal Lens ($1500 extra) in my left eye for reading.(He was really pushing for me to upgrade to the multifocal lenses). I had cataract surgery 2/17/11 on my dominant eye.
Avatar f tn I have the other eye done next week, which should be easier. The first eye had lasik and a prk touch up. The next eye only had lasik, so I hope the calculations will work well for the second eye. I have thought about cancelling the second eye, being afraid the hyperopia will happen to that eye also, which would render my eyes both basically useless without correction. What would you do? Wait on doing the second eye? Do the piggyback and the second eye at the same time?
Avatar f tn however DDH is a disease of eye alignment so lasik will not help it either. Even if you had insurance it would not pay for lasik.
13008581 tn?1432432810 within the last week my vision has became very blurry . has anyone tried Lasik surgery and if so what was the outcome?
Avatar m tn What is lasik surgery and does it effectively help vision correction?
Avatar m tn Infection and dislocation of the lasik flap are known complications of the lasik procedure but are not common. Work closely with your cornea surgeon to treat this problem and some time in the next week or two ask for a second opinion and see another ophthalmologist that does lasik surgery to see you. It is far too early to conclude that you vision will be permantently blurry.
Avatar n tn I have worked with an Eye MD that did lasik (paid for by insurance) on the -10 eye hoping to cut it down to say -3 to -4 where glasses would work. Bottom line she cannot wear glasses that are -3 and -10 and when you stop patching the vision will fall off unless she wears contacts and glasses.
Avatar f tn My orignial surgeon who I will see soon, wants to do YAG and lasik (at his expense) to repair the limited vision I have with the crystalens implanted almost 3 months ago - he admits his measurements were off and the power is too strong ( I can only see my fingertips clearly - no halos or other problems though) He wants to do crystalens in the other eye . I do not want lasik nor do I want a crystalens in other eye - I would like monofocal lenses after my experience with crystalens.
Avatar m tn Is Lasik done 1 1/2 years following Crystalens surgery to improve near vision usually successful or would it be better to wear glasses or contacts to be able to read? What is the success rate of Lasik following Crystalens?
Avatar n tn I am considering lasik now as my doctor told me that he could improve my eys to where I would no longer need the glasses and my distance vision would improve as well. How successful is lasik after Multifocal implants and are the potential side effects more prevalent? Currently I experience minor halos at night but they are very tolerable.
Avatar m tn The typical side effects from lasik are dry eyes (you should count on that) and improved vision. Read more posts and visit with an EyeMD.
Avatar n tn Since the 2nd day after my operation, I have been having double vision from my left eye. Why is that so? is it a side effect from LASIK? How can I gain back a sharp vision from my left eye again? I am very worried. Will wearing spectacles help?
Avatar f tn getting LASIK in the second eye. I actually had measurements done for both LASIK and an IOL for my second eye. However, I was so pleased with my results with an aspheric monofocal IOL that I knew I wanted another one for my second eye. If your husband had his IOLs set for modified monovision, with a little luck he would only need glasses for prolonged reading or seeing small print.
Avatar n tn The calculation depends on the adjustment to corneal power due to the LASIK. The power of the cornea after LASIK needs to be calculated. Some machines will evaluate the power. Also, formulas such as Haigis L is fairly good in the calculation. The ASCRS website has a number of formula to use in post refractive patients. Dr. O.
Avatar f tn Why don't you compate who has better near vision - I bet it will be you. Sometimes regression occurs for multiple different reasons. If your vision seems off, make an appointment to see your surgeon or your personal ophthalmologist to find out why your vision has dropped off. It is possible that it has nothing to do with the LASIK. For example you could have something like a cataract or a retinal problem.
Avatar f tn I now had the same surgery in my left eye using the same technique and same doctor, but I now have blurry vision after removing the patch over six days ago. What could be the reason for the blurry vision? Is this part of the healing, or is it considered a complicaiton?I search the internet for "complications" after ptyerigium surgery and there isn't any info besides recurrence as the complication. What could I do to fix this? PLEASE HELP!
Avatar n tn Almost every day now I get so aggravated with my contacts not correcting my vision’ it really depresses me. I know I could where my glasses but I rely so much on my peripheral vision that they slow me down and are downright dangerous in some situations to wear. I’ve tried many different brands with no luck including the new high oxygen permeability such as O2-optics and acuvue oasis among 4 other brands this last month. After an exam for lasik which I will not be doing, the Doc.
