Lucent Vision Offers Hope and Solutions for Prospective LASIK Candidates with Dry Eyes


Long Beach, April 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Long Beach, California –

In a groundbreaking development, Lucent Vision has announced that individuals suffering from dry eye syndrome can now consider LASIK surgery as a viable option for vision correction. This revelation, discussed in their article “Can I Have LASIK if I Have Dry Eyes?” (found on their website here: is set to change the landscape for millions who have been previously told they were not candidates for such procedures due to their condition.

Dry Eye Disease, a common ailment affecting a significant portion of the population, has long been a barrier for those seeking LASIK surgery. Symptoms such as fluctuating vision, eye strain, and discomfort have deterred many from pursuing corrective vision surgery. However, Lucent Vision’s comprehensive approach to preoperative care and management has made it possible for patients with dry eyes to successfully undergo LASIK, offering a new lease on life to those plagued by both poor vision and dry eye symptoms.


Lucent Vision’s methodology encompasses a thorough evaluation of the patient’s ocular health, identifying and treating underlying causes of dry eye before proceeding with LASIK surgery. By optimizing tear production through behavior modification, medical therapy, and in-office procedures such as the use of punctal plugs and meibomian gland therapy, Lucent Vision ensures that the ocular surface is in optimal condition for laser vision correction. This preparatory phase not only enhances the safety and effectiveness of the LASIK procedure but also contributes to the long-term health of the patient’s eyes.

Moreover, Lucent Vision addresses concerns regarding the temporary reduction in tear production that some patients may experience post-LASIK. With state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic options, the team is equipped to manage these symptoms efficiently, minimizing discomfort and facilitating a smoother recovery process. For those with severe dry eye conditions, Lucent Vision offers alternative surgical solutions, such as Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and the implantation of Intraocular Collamer Lenses (ICL), ensuring that patients receive personalized care tailored to their specific needs.

The implications of this advancement are profound. Prospective patients who have resigned themselves to a life of corrective lenses due to dry eye syndrome now have access to safe, effective LASIK surgery. Lucent Vision’s pioneering approach not only broadens the candidacy for laser vision correction but also underscores the importance of comprehensive ocular health management.

Lucent Vision’s commitment to patient education and empowerment is evident in their detailed consultation process. By providing clear, accurate information about the risks, benefits, and alternatives to LASIK surgery, the team ensures that patients are well-informed decision-makers in their care. This patient-centric approach, combined with cutting-edge technology and expert clinical care, positions Lucent Vision as a leader in the field of ophthalmology.
