At Griebenow Eyecare, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. As optometrists, Dr. Craig Sylte and Dr. Molly Benck offers pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing cataract or 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
At Griebenow Eyecare, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients who need cataract surgery or who are interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Sylte or Dr. Benck 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 eye surgery and if there are any other factors that may affect your results. The history review enables our optometrists to determine if your prescription is stable and you are healthy enough to consider surgery.
Once Dr. Sylte or Dr. Benck has performed the evaluation and determined whether you are a candidate eye surgery, you will be given a referral to a qualified eye surgery center. 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 or text us at (920) 982-3711 to schedule a consultation.
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Clintonville or New London clinic. Typically, you will begin these follow-ups the day of the surgery and continue at prearranged times over a period of time. After one year, a full exam is recommended to determine the long-term results of your procedure. Both Dr. Sylte and Dr. Benck are 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 eye surgery, call (800) 427-9585 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us at [email protected].
