Discover a Whole New World With LASIK and Other Refractive Surgeries

Wish you could see the world more clearly without having to rely on your glasses or contact lenses?

Refractive eye surgery may be the perfect solution for you!

With LASIK, you’ll enjoy clear vision, all day, everyday — without any need for corrective eyewear.

Have any of the following?

  • Myopia/nearsightedness–difficulty seeing faraway objects
  • Hyperopia/farsightedness–difficulty seeing near objects 
  • Astigmatism–blurred perception of near and far objects

Gone are the days of foggy, rain-speckled lenses. LASIK will give you the clear vision you desire and the confidence you deserve.

What is LASIK and Refractive Surgery Co-Management?

LASIK and other refractive surgeries are delicate, and it can all feel overwhelming. That's why we work together with the eye surgeon to provide you with the best outcome in the most efficient manner.

We'll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and determine whether you're a candidate for refractive eye surgery. If so, we'll refer you to the ophthalmologist for surgery. Following surgery, we'll provide post-operative care to make sure you maintain healthy, clear vision.

Getting co-managed for LASIK and other refractive surgeries is an advantage, as you benefit from the expertise of two medical experts who work together to provide you with the best eye surgery results possible.

Contact The Meadows Family Eye Care in Castle Rock to schedule a consultation and find out if LASIK (or other refractive surgeries) is right for you.


How LASIK and Other Refractive Surgeries Improve Vision

Have trouble seeing near or far away? The source of the problem may be the curvature of your cornea. An irregular corneal shape affects the way light hits the retina–which sends visual signals to the brain.

LASIK and other refractive surgeries change the shape of your cornea to offer you clear vision, without the need for contacts and glasses. After the surgery, you'll be able to swim, shower and play sports without a second thought about your eyesight.


LASIK & Refractive Surgery Benefits

  • Highly effective

    There is a reason LASIK is so popular–96% of patients report satisfaction after this procedure.

  • Works quickly

    You may see results from LASIK or other refractive surgery quickly–sometimes as soon as a day or two after the treatment.

  • Minimal discomfort

    You are unlikely to feel any pain during the procedure thanks to the numbing drops. Also, you won’t need stitches or bandages after surgery.

  • Quick recovery time

    Compared to other eye surgeries, LASIK has a relatively quick recovery time. Although the speed varies from patient to patient, you may feel like yourself again in as little as 6 to 12 hours.


How to Prepare for LASIK and Other Refractive Surgery

  • Stop wearing contact lenses–your eye doctor will tell you how soon before surgery to wear glasses instead of contacts.
  • Understand the procedure–talk to your eye doctor about what to expect.
  • Arrange a ride–you won’t be able to drive home from the clinic, so coordinate with a friend or relative.
  • Arrive with a fresh, clean face–don’t apply eye makeup and avoid wearing heavy lotions or perfumes before the procedure.

What to Expect from the Treatment

  • The eye surgeon will apply numbing drops to your eye.
  • They will keep your eyes open with a device .
  • The eye surgeon will make a small flap in the surface of your cornea with a laser or microkeratome–a precision surgical instrument.
  • You will look directly at a light while the eye surgeon reshapes your cornea.
  • The surgeon will place the flap back in place so it can heal.

LASIK and Refractive Surgery After-Care

  • Apply eye drops as directed by your eye doctor.
  • Rest your eyes as much as possible in the ensuing days.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • You may return to your regular activities including driving, after a few days.
  • Go to all post-operative eye examinations.
  • You may experience blurry vision after surgery. This should go away, but if it persists after several months, discuss it with your The Meadows Family Eye Care eye doctor.

Lasik Refractive Surgery FAQs

Will I still need to wear glasses after LASIK?

The satisfaction rate is very high for post-LASIK and refractive surgery patients. That said, whether you’ll still need corrective eyewear after surgery depends on your eye condition, how well your cornea responded to surgery, and the healing process.

What are some eye problems that LASIK and refractive surgery can't correct?

LASIK and refractive surgery are specifically designed to correct refractive errors caused by an irregular shaped cornea. It can’t solve the following: 

  • Amblyopia–lazy eye
  • Cataracts–cloudy patch on the surface of the lens
  • Glaucoma–damage to the optic nerve caused by pressure inside the eye
  • Keratoconus–weak or thin cornea that bulges forward
Can LASIK or other refractive surgeries have negative effects?

No procedure is completely free of possible risks and complications and the same is true of LASIK and refractive surgery. Some of these include: 

  • Dry eye symptoms
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Flap problems including infection
  • Vision undercorrection or overcorrection 

If you experience any of these. Contact The Meadows Family Eye Care right away.

Will I have to have LASIK and refractive surgery again?

Usually, LASIK or refractive surgery is successful the first time around. However, if the problem persists after the treatment, the eye surgeon may repeat the surgery.

Contact The Meadows Family Eye Care in Castle Rock today to learn more about LASIK and other refractive surgeries and to find out if you're a candidate.

My son had a bad eye infection that wasn’t clearing with standard medication. Sarah was wonderful... and got us in within an hour! Dr. Mariana did a very thorough exam and made multiple recommendations and prescribed a new eye drop. He was clear within 5 days and ready for his backpacking trip! So grateful for this amazing team!

I was amazed how attentive, friendly and helpful everyone was! Really enjoyed talking with Dr. Ryan... and he was very thorough and friendly. Was very pleased with the variety of glasses to choose from. Angela helped me and ensured I was happy with our choices on my glasses. She spent so much time with me helping me pick out my glasses and double checking all her measurements for my progressives. I have never experienced this quality of care in eye wellness, thank you!

Angela is absolutely incredible and went above and beyond to secure a doctor’s exam and beautiful ... eye glasses for both my daughter and myself. Angela even stayed later so my daughter could take her time choosing glasses. We have been going here for years and Angela is always so positive, genuine and helpful. She is wonderful and it is because of her we keep continue coming back every year.

The Meadows Family Eye Care is our new place for eye care! We moved to Castle Rock from Denver and n... eeded a new Optometrist. My husband and I were both impressed with the level of care from both Drs, the thoroughness of our exams, the qualified, friendly staff and the eye glass choices for any budget. You will not be disappointed choosing the Meadows Family Eye Care as your new eye care facility. We are certainly happy we found both Dr. Reids!

This place is 5+ Stars. It's a beautiful and comfortable environment where everyone is friendly and ... makes you feel welcome. The doctors (the Reids) are amazing. They take the time to explain EVERYTHING. They have recruited Opticians with 20+ years experience. They didn't skimp on customer service and the price is comparable to other places in town. My daughter couldn't be happier with her new glasses. Keep up the great work!
- Aug. 11, 2021
Their professionalism, and genuine concern for every aspect of patient care is above reproach! After... receiving the highest level of care during my recent visit, I had a transportation emergency. Regrettably, their names escape me, but the optician and several other staff members went ABOVE and BEYOND to assist me. I was deeply touched by their level of dedication, kindness, and it is for these reasons that I HIGHLY recommend this dedicated eye care team!
- May. 04, 2021
This place is amazing. From the first smiling faces you see when you walk through the door, to the w... hole exam team. I was completely comfortable and relaxed the entire time. Nothing felt intrusive or uncomfortable. And they got me in and out and I felt completely taken care of. 10/10 would recommend! This is the eye clinic for you 😊
- Apr. 06, 2021
I have been going here for a few years now and have been very happy. Both Dr. Maia and Dr. Ryan are... very professional and personable. They are patient when examining my children and have provided the best care for me and my families vision. With 4 children who all have different vision needs they haven’t missed a beat with providing the best options for all our needs, they answer all my questions and are both very easy to communicate with. The office staff is friendly and professional. And the new technology they have brought in is top notch!!!
- Feb. 16, 2021
Update: changing my 4 star review because they are a business that wants to do what it takes to earn... my business. They called me after I left this review and we had a great discussion on my experience. I do hope that the feedback was taken and that the owners are able to take a step and evaluate priorities and take care of their staff (if that's what's needed). My experience with the Meadows family eye care was okay, not great. In short the 4 stars goes to whoever was working in the front desk...she was awesome and very professional. Most other staff made me feel rushed especially when I had questions around the fit and additional contact lens testing. My doctor was very nice and also very professional. The stars go to my doctor and the staff member working at the front desk!
