What Happens During a Laser Eye Surgery Consultation?

During your consultation, our experienced optometrists can evaluate your eyes and discuss your vision needs and goals with you. We will also review your medical history and any medications you are taking to confirm laser eye surgery can meet your needs. We will also take the time to answer any questions you may have.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery

Our optometrists are here to provide you with detailed information about the different types of laser eye surgery available, including LASIK and PRK.

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis)

LASIK is a popular laser eye surgery that uses a laser to create a flap in the cornea, which is then lifted to allow the laser to reshape the cornea. Recovery from LASIK often takes just a few weeks, and some patients experience clear vision within the first 24 hours.

PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, involves removing the outer layer of the cornea to access the underlying tissue. The laser is then used to reshape the cornea. PRK is typically recommended for patients with thinner corneas or those who are not suitable candidates for LASIK.

Taking the Next Step

After your consultation, if you decide to proceed with laser eye surgery, we will refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist who can perform the procedure. Our team will work with your ophthalmologist and provide you with detailed pre-operative and post-operative instructions to support you throughout your laser eye surgery journey.

It’s important to remember that while laser eye surgery is a safe and effective procedure for most patients, it may not be suitable for everyone. We will work closely with you to determine if laser eye surgery is the best option for your unique needs and vision goals.

With You For Every Part of the Journey

During the first few days after your procedure, you may experience some discomfort, dryness, or blurry vision. This is normal and can be managed with prescribed eye drops, rest, and avoiding any strenuous activities. We recommend taking a few days off work or school to give your eyes time to rest and heal properly.

At your follow-up appointment, we will evaluate your eyes to confirm they are healing as expected. We may also adjust your medication or give you additional instructions on how to care for your eyes and recover safely.

If you have any concerns or experience any unusual symptoms, such as severe pain, sudden vision loss, or excessive discharge, please contact us. We are always available to answer your questions and provide support throughout your recovery.
