Schedule a ConsultationLaser & Corneal Surgery Associates is committed to providing the highest quality patient care and that care includes much more than just the actual surgery. Both your pre-operative and follow-up care are an integral part of the Laser Eye Surgery experience.
We at LCSA like to think of your procedure as consisting of:
- Pre-operative care
- Follow-up care
The first step, pre-operative care, requires an initial consultation to establish if you are a candidate for LASIK. During this time we will evaluate the health of you are a candidate for LASIK. If a preliminary determination is made that you are a candidate for laser eye surgery, a second measurement as well as a dilated exam is then performed, or scheduled at a convenient time.
- Soft contact lens wearers must leave their lenses out for at least one week and hard lens or RGP wearers a minimum of one month for every decade of use
- It generally takes 20 to 30 minutes for the eyes to become fully dilated.
- Near vision is affected and your focusing ability will not return for roughly 2-4 hours.
- Your distance vision will not be affected (you can still wear your glasses/contacts), but we do not recommend that you drive home while your eyes are still dilated.
The third part of the Laser Eye Surgery process is your follow-up care. It begins with your day 1 post-op and will continue throughout your first year. Listed below is the schedule of necessary appointments.
