Returning to Dello Russo Laser Vision:
At a minimum, patients typically come back to see us for a routine follow-up visit 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 4-6 months after surgery. If you feel you are not seeing at the level you expected, Dello Russo LaserVision encourages you to schedule an appointment prior to this time. OUR PROMISE IS TO BE HERE FOR YOU! DR. JOSEPH, DR. JEFF & THE DELLO RUSSO LASERVISION STAFF WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY!
While refractive surgery has made dramatic improvements in recent years in terms of obtaining reliable and consistent outcomes, we cannot foresee every variable during or after surgery. Not every patient responds to the laser in exactly the same fashion and we all heal slightly differently. Approximately, 5% of patients will require a two-laser procedure to meet their expectations. Statistically, the larger your prescription is,the more likely you will require an “enhancement.” Slight under or over corrections are common (it is counterproductive to think of them as a failure of the surgery). We accept the fact that re-treatments are inherent to this type of surgery and that a small percentage of patients will require a second treatment. There is no charge for an enhancement within 12 months after LASIK.
If a second procedure would be to your benefit, we will discuss the pros and cons with you in detail. In addition, all of our safety parameters must be satisfied. Furthermore, you must be fully healed from your first procedure before we can offer you a second treatment.
