How To Prepare For Your LASIK Procedure

How To Prepare For Your LASIK Procedure

LASIK eye surgery, like any surgery, requires that patients make certain preparations in advance of the procedure. Although this isn’t considered to be a major surgery and doesn’t require patients to stay in a hospital for any length of time, it’s still important that you prepare yourself properly. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Ask any questions ahead of time: If you have any questions or concerns, or want to know more about the procedure, be sure to ask your eye doctor during your consultation or at any time before your surgery. This way, you’ll know exactly what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
  • Be clear about your payment plan: Although it is more affordable than ever before, LASIK uses cutting-edge technology to deliver the best and safest results in eye care. Speak to your medical insurance company about whether or not they cover the cost of LASIK and, if you need additional assistance, speak to the clinic about an affordable financing plan.
  • Stop wearing contact lenses: Due to the way they fit onto your eyes, contact lenses can change the shape of your cornea. Your eye doctor will advise you on when to stop wearing your contacts so that your natural eye shape is restored before the procedure can go ahead.
  • Stop wearing eye makeup: In the days leading up to your surgery, your eye doctor will advise you to stop wearing eye makeup, lotions, perfumes and any other products that can lead to eye irritation and infection.
  • Organize a ride home: LASIK is a quick procedure that doesn’t require you to stay over at the clinic, however, you will not be able to drive yourself home. This is because you will have blurred vision and still feel the affects of the medicine given to you during surgery. You will need a friend or family member to collect you from the clinic and drive you home to rest and recover.
