Experience Better Vision With Dr. Sina
Glasses and contacts can be a hassle — and paying for them over the course of your lifetime can really add up. Wouldn’t you love to quit dealing with scratched up glasses or stop holding onto your last, dried-up contact lens while your new ones are coming in the mail? Wouldn’t you like to enjoy your life without cleaning your glasses or dealing with contacts drying out your eyes?
This is why Dr. Sabet MD offers LASIK procedures. While the procedure isn’t for everyone, LASIK is an innovative form of laser eye surgery that can dramatically improve your vision and eliminate your need for corrective eyewear. You’ll see better and eliminate the costs of corrective eyewear now and in the future.
BENEFITS OF LASIK EYE SURGERY
Scientific studies have shown that 95 percent of those who undergo LASIK procedure will achieve 20/40 visual acuity, while 85 will achieve 20/20 vision. Regardless of how much your vision improves, you’re going to see dramatic increases in visual sharpness and clarity.
LASIK is an outpatient procedure — and while you won’t be able to drive home after your appointment, your normal vision and lifestyle will return within 24 hours.
The entire LASIK procedure takes a few months to transform your vision, but once your eyes are completely adjusted, the results should be permanent. Occasionally, older patients will need a follow-up surgery once their eyesight changes with age, but otherwise, the results will last a lifetime.
It’s true — LASIK surgery doesn’t come cheap. However, glasses and contact lenses don’t either. A LASIK procedure is a lifelong investment into your vision — instead of spending hundreds per year on contact lenses and glasses, you could invest that money into LASIK. The procedure will eventually pay for itself.

Evaluation and Referral
LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery uses the 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 Sina J Sabet MD PC, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Sabet 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 team to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Sabet 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 (703) 370-9411 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Alexandria 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. Sabet 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 (703) 370-9411 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
