At Amelia Eye Associates, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. As an optometrist, Dr. Gerald Koss offers pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery, cataract 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 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 Amelia Eye Associates, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Koss 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. Koss 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 (904)321-1333 to schedule a consultation.

Post-Operative Care - LASIK
Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Fernandina Beach 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. Koss 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 (904)321-1333 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or email us.
Advantages of LASIK
If you have worn glasses or contact lenses for a long time, you may have wondered if LASIK surgery is a good choice for you. While not everyone is a candidate for LASIK, it does have some great advantages. People who play sports, have allergies, or who are looking for simplicity will all benefit from LASIK. To learn more about LASIK and your vision, call Amelia Eye Associates today at (904)321-1333.
Post-Operative Care - Cataract
Once your cataract surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our office. Typically, these follow-ups start the day after surgery. Usually, this will be followed with a 1 week evaluation and then a 1 month evaluation. Once your eyes have healed we will usually see you for a 6 month follow-up to check the condition of your new lenses and ocular health.
