Before LASIK Surgery
LASIK can be very successful if done on the right patient, but it is not for everyone.
That is why your doctor will carry out a thorough eye exam to be sure your eyes are healthy enough for the procedure. Your doctor will examine:
- The shape and thickness of your cornea
- Pupil size
- Refractive errors
- Moistness of your eye
- Other eye conditions
Your doctor will assess your general health and take note of any medication you are taking.
Be sure to stop putting on contact lenses for a time period recommended by your doctor (normally around two weeks) before your eye exam and before the procedure because contacts can change the natural shape of your cornea.
