At Kelly Padgett, O.D., we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. As an optometrist, Dr. Kelly Padgett offers pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other eye surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible using advanced technologies.


Evaluation and Referral


LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses that latest advancements in technology to provide faster recovery times and precise results. LASIK surgery has been effective in treating myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and other eye conditions. At Kelly Padgett, O.D., we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Padgett performs a complete review of your patient history as well as a full assessment of your eye health and vision. A current exam is important to determining if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrist to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.


Once Dr. Padgett has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate for LASIK, you will be given a referral to the LASIK surgery center we have worked with on an ongoing basis. The center will perform advanced diagnostic testing and will evaluate your eligibility for surgery. Various surgery options will be discussed with you if you are determined to be a surgical candidate. We will be in correspondence with the center regarding your evaluation and surgical determination. If you are considering LASIK surgery, call us at 360-736-4447 to schedule a consultation.


Post-Operative Care


Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Centralia office. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day after the surgery and continue at prearranged times over the following six months. After 1 year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Dr. Padgett is experienced in working with patients pre- and post-operation and will answer any questions that you have along the way. If you have questions about LASIK surgery, call 360-736-4447 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or .


Advantages of LASIK

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Padgett is excellent! I took two of my children in for routine eye test. My children absolutely love her now. The staff was a delight to deal with. Everyone in the office was warm and caring. I forgot to ask for excuse for absences for school. I asked if they could fax them to the school and they were very compliant. I'm glad I chose them for my family's eyecare needs."
