What To Expect

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR LASIK PROCEDURE DAY


Before the procedure:

You will be greeted by one of our highly experienced, certified LASIK technicians who will prep your eyes for surgery. You will receive a low dosage of a relaxant. The LASIK procedure only takes minutes. The laser is used to correct the refractive imperfections in your eye (these imperfections are essentially the reason you are nearsighted, farsighted, etc.).

Here's what happens during the procedure:

  • Computers/software (CustomVue® Wavescan technology) are used to make an individual blueprint of your eyes; this blueprint is used to drive your laser correction and is what gives you a truly customized result.
  • The doctor will talk to you throughout the entire procedure to let you know what is occurring and what to expect next.
  • You will be given numbing drops so you won't feel pain, only a little pressure.
  • A laser is used to make a thin flap in your cornea.
  • This flap enables the surgeon to perform the iLASIK® treatment.
  • A second laser is used to make the correction to your cornea, based on your unique vision/eye characteristics. This only takes a few seconds. Both eyes are treated at the same visit.  The entire procedure only takes about 10 minutes to complete.

After the procedure:

The LASIK surgeon will evaluate the corneal flap created during the procedure, which usually heals in approximately (6) hours. Shields or goggles are applied to prevent inadvertent rubbing or debris to the eyes. A postoperative kit will be distributed.

We advise you to rest for the remainder of the day and to apply eye drops according to the prescribed regimen. You will be seen by the doctor the very next day and we will continue to monitor your success at your regularly scheduled follow-up visits. Because there is minimal disturbance to the tissue of the eyes, patients describe a high comfort level after LASIK and state they notice a rapid improvement in their vision. The majority of patients return to work the next day after their 1 day postop visit.
