How We Can Help the Laser Vision Correction Process

Wink Optical has the experience in pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of LASIK and other vision correction procedures. If you are someone interested in this procedure or someone who simply needs help managing their upcoming procedure, we can help.

During your exam, our optometrists will discuss your vision goals and determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. Our evaluation will test eye dominance, current refraction status, and conduct a medical review of your cornea and eye.

If you decide to move forward with corrective surgery after your evaluation, we can refer you to a surgeon in the Chicago area.

Following your surgery, Wink Optical can handle the post-operative care. This will involve management of the vision and corneal healing over time.

While LASIK is the most popular vision correcting surgery available, we will discuss with you other less invasive options. Our goal is to find the ideal solution for your needs.


LASIK is popular because it has advantages over other vision correction procedures. There is a relative lack of pain afterward and good vision usually is achieved within a couple days.

This procedure works for both nearsightedness and farsightedness. With nearsighted people, the objective is to flatten the too-steep cornea. With farsighted people, a steeper cornea is desired. Excimer lasers also can correct astigmatism by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape.
