At Eye Care For You, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. As an optometrist, Dr. Alejandro Tirado 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 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 Eye Care For You, we provide evaluations and referrals for patients interested in LASIK surgery. Dr. Tirado 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. Tirado 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) 683-8444 to schedule a consultation.

Post-Operative Care

Once your surgery is scheduled, we will schedule follow-up appointments for you in our Jacksonville 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. Tirado 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) 683-8444 to speak with our knowledgeable staff or .

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.

  • "My first visit to Dr. Tirado was in 1999. He is very caring and a thorough doctor. I moved from Jacksonville spring 2008 and returned spring 2013. Needless to say, there was absolutely no hesitation to return to Dr. T for my yearly eye exams."

  • "All the swimming in my daily lifestyle made it difficult to wear soft contact lenses. My eyes would be dry and irritated at the end of the day. After discovering CRT lenses as a possible alternative, I scheduled an appointment. I was pleased by a welcoming, friendly, and enthusiastic atmosphere. On my second visit, I have issued my CRT lenses. After my first night with my lenses, my vision improved 20-30%. After 10 days my vision was 20/25 compared to my normal vision of 20/350. The contacts were initially uncomfortable and foreign, but I was determined to get through this phase. Almost a month later my vision is very close to perfect and my eyes give me no problems in the pool. It's also a cool feeling to be independent of contacts and glasses during the day. Overall I'm very happy with the amazing results and eager to note that each visit is an enjoyable experience."
