LASIK is an amazing procedure that has helped thousands of people improve their vision and their quality of life. The prospect of seeing more clearly without contacts or glasses is exhilarating! However, many people wonder what happens during a LASIK consultation. We’re here to fill you in on what to expect during your pre-LASIK appointment.
Step 1: You’ll Meet With Our Staff
Though we don’t require a referral from your existing eye doctor, it certainly helps to bring your eye health records. It also helps to provide us with a family medical history, as well. Don’t have those readily available? That’s no problem. We can have you sign a release allowing EyeLASIK to request your records from your doctor, if necessary.
Our laser coordinator and clinic director will carefully review your history. This review is not an examination. It’s non-invasive, and you won’t actually have the surgery that day. The purpose of taking a careful look at your eye history is to make sure that you are a candidate for the procedure. It’s important to determine this, as the surgery could be detrimental to non-ideal candidates.
Step 2: Discuss Your Options
As we’ve discussed before, there are many different types of laser surgery. One of the most important aspects of determining this is…you! Each of these procedures is slightly different. It’s our job to choose the best option to maximize the benefit.
Step 3: Tour The Facility
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite is one of the best around! We like for our patients to see where their procedure will take place prior to the surgery. Not only are we very proud of our facility, we want each patient to feel comfortable with the environment and the process.
Step 4: Instructions And Financial Obligations
Prior to booking your surgery, our administrative team reviews several pieces of information with you. These include pre- and post-surgical instructions, surgery date options, and payment arrangements. We are happy to offer affordable financing options.
Oh yes, we missed the best part! Your LASIK consultation is absolutely complimentary. You don’t have to pay a thing.
