Co-management is a collaborative relationship that exists between your ophthalmologist and your optometrist to provide you with the best pre and post-operative care. This collaboration improves patient care, especially as it applies to following your case long-term. Co-management maximizes the benefits to the patient by utilizing the expertise of both providers to their utmost potential. Coastal Vision Medical Group co-manages for all surgical cases including cataracts, refractive surgeries like LASIK, and glaucoma.
Your cornea is the clear and transparent tissue on the top layer of your eye. It is made up of several layers: the epithelium, Bowman’s layer, the stroma, Descemet’s membrane and the endothelium. Your cornea is responsible for refracting or bending light that enters the eye. It acts as your eye’s outermost lens, providing about 75% of your eye’s focusing power.
LASIK is an elective procedure that is performed to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
