What to Expect With A Lasik Consultation
The LASIK Consultation involves three major steps:
(1) An extensive evaluation of your vision needs, lifestyle and some medical history;
(2) A thorough yet non-invasive eye examination and;
(3) Addressing your questions and concerns about the procedure.
Much of examination portion of the LASIK consultation is quite similar to a typical comprehensive eye exam. The exam is pain-free and does not require any uncomfortable dilation or invasive procedures. Your eye doctor will use state-of-the-art technologies and techniques to evaluate and measure various aspects of your eyes, map the corneas, and perform a precise plotting of your pupils.

Youwill leave feeling well-versed on LASIK, your status as a good candidate for surgery, and enough information to make an informed decision on your own. Lasik surgery will need to be performed by a qualified Ophthalmologist and be assured we will make an appropriate recommendation.
