Are you a candidate for LASIK?
Pre-Surgical exam; the Advanced Vision Analysis you have been waiting for. During your initial consultation, you may schedule your advanced vision analysis or have it completed the same day. This examination will help the doctor determine whether or not you are a candidate for the LASIK procedure. You will receive several optical tests and a one on one review with the doctor. The doctor will go through all of the test results with you at your Pre-surgical Exam.
If you are a candidate for LASIK, the next step is scheduling your surgery. LASIK is an outpatient procedure. You will receive a list of everything you need to do before the surgery and also watch a pre-surgical video about the procedure. You will be able to see the difference in your vision right as you are leaving the office.
Recovery and Care
You will receive instructions on how to care for your eyes during your recovery before your surgery. You will meet your surgeon at your post-operative appointment, a few days after surgery. As a part of your post-operative care, your surgeon may call at any time with questions and check on your well-being. Plan on coming back for a second follow up appointment in one month.
Patients who have had a corneal transplant may also see enhanced results with LASIK or PRK, especially those who developed a high degree of astigmatism as a result of the prior surgery. A clear corneal transplant will allow good vision only if it has a relatively round surface. Laser vision correction can smooth out astigmatic curves in the cornea.
