Dr. Kambiz Silani is the chief optometrist at Beverly Hills Optometry. He takes charge of contact and lens management at the office. Dr. Silani has extensive experience with LASIK eye surgery in Beverly Hills, dating from his training at La Jolla LASIK institute. He is at the forefront of investigating cutting-edge techniques for vision improvement.
LASIK is short for Laser-assisted in situ Keratomilieusis. You may know it as laser eye surgery. It works by changing the shape of the eye’s cornea, which then allows light to properly travel to the back of the eye so that your brain can correctly process it. This improves your vision and can overcome nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure has a 96 percent success rate in helping people avoid needing to use their glasses or contact lenses anymore.
You may be able to get LASIK eye surgery and have your vision improve in such a way as to no longer require glasses or contact lenses. The laser eye surgery treats conditions such as astigmatism, myopia, hypertropia, and presbyopia, so many people are good candidates who stand to gain a lot. There is a small risk of vision loss, dry eye, halo vision, infection, and a slipped flap due to surgery.
If you think you want to get laser eye surgery, you can start by selecting a LASIK surgeon. Choose a refractive surgeon who is licensed, board-certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, and is a member of the American College of Surgeons. Also ask for referrals and check online reviews. Then see whether your insurance covers the procedure. Dr. Silani will help you through the process of selecting the right surgeon.
You’ll have an initial consultation in the eye doctor’s office to make sure that you’re a good candidate and to go over your medical history. Then you’ll schedule your appointment for the procedure. Don’t wear your contact lenses for a few days before the surgery. You will not feel pain during the laser treatment due to the numbing drops you’ll receive. The procedure is quick, and you can return to regular activities afterward. Dr. Silani will conduct all post operation appointments.
