Approved by the FDA 20 years ago, laser vision correction is a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. By adjusting the shape of the clear cornea covering the front of the eye, this treatment eliminates the need for corrective eyewear. Drawing from the analysis of thousands of patients and the measurements of your particular eye, we can tailor your procedure to the precise needs of your vision. Dr. Stanley Teplick offers both LASIK and Epi-Lasik procedures at his Portland, OR, practice.
We take the time to properly screen our patients that are interested in undergoing LASIK surgery to ensure exceptional results and avoid potential complications. Dr. Teplick will evaluate your candidacy for the procedure and determine whether or not the procedure will provide you with a high chance of vision improvement that outweighs the potential complications. Three significant factors that play a role in a successful LASIK eye surgery are the skills of the surgeon, the technology used, and a patient eligible for the surgery. Find out if you're a good candidate for laser eye surgery by contacting us to set up a consultation.

lasik risks and side effects
Although the chances of complications or side effects occurring after LASIK surgery are rare, it is good to be informed about them. By being informed about the risks and side effects of LASIK surgery, you'll be able to learn how to decrease your chances of getting them, and you'll have a complete understanding of the procedure. In your consultation with Dr. Teplick, the potential side effects and risks will be discussed, in addition to all the benefits. Our team at Teplick Custom Vision takes every precaution to lower the chances of these complications so that you will have the best chances at ideal improvement in your vision.
At Teplick Custom Vision, we'll make sure that your laser eye surgery recovery period goes smoothly. In most cases, you'll be able to go right back to work after LASIK surgery; however, your eyes will not be completely healed until three months have passed. We want you to have the best vision improvement possible, and that is why we will help you through the recovery period. After the surgery, we'll have three appointments scheduled throughout the healing period to meet and touch base on how your eyes are doing. We'll provide you with steroid eye drops for the first week, in addition to artificial tears that you will be using for 2 to 3 months. We'll take the necessary steps to help your eyes properly heal.
