Getting your eyes measured.
A thorough eye exam is your first step toward having laser
vision correction. Besides measuring your prescription, it is
also important to measure your corneal shape, corneal thickness,
pupil size, and tear function. All told we measure more than 50
things about your eyes before surgery. We also look carefully
for any reasons that you should not have laser eye surgery, such
as eye diseases or medical problems.
Take your contacts out at least 1 week before your exam, and
keep them out before your surgery to let your eyes un-mold.
Start using non-preserved artificial tears (Thera-Tears or
Refresh Plus) four times daily; this will help keep your eyes in
the best shape for surgery. To minimize the risk of infection
and speed healing, start antibiotic eye drops the day before
surgery and scrub your eyelids morning and night to keep the
lashes clean of makeup, skin cells, debris, and bacteria.
Step Two— Preparing for your surgery.
Have a family member or friend drive you to your surgery and
your follow-up visit the morning after. You’ll be in our office
about an hour the day of your procedure. One of our
friendly staff members will review all the steps of your
procedure and escort you to the room and guide you through the
process. Afterwards we will go over your eye drops and caring
for your eyes after your procedure. Within a few hours you can
start enjoying your new vision without your glasses and
