You're a busy person, but you've still made time to have laser eye surgery. Whether you're having traditional LASIK, LASEK, EpiLASEK, PRK, or Wavefront (VISX, LADARVision, LADARWave) guided custom LASIK or LASEK vision correction, take care of yourself and your eyes. Grab your to-do list and note down these pre-operative tips:
1) Don't wear soft contact lenses three days before surgery.
2) Don't wear eye makeup on the day of the surgery.
3) If you wear eyeglasses, your laser eye surgeon will want to review your prescription, so bring your glasses to the hospital or clinic.
4) Eat a light meal before surgery--you'll be having local anesthetic, (numbing eye drops), so you don't have to have laser eye surgery on an empty stomach.
Above all, relax--trust your laser eye surgeon and look forward to vision correction that will help you keep your active lifestyle.
Great blog! Thanks. I recently had lasik surgery and by accident I stumbled upon www.thepatientsadvantage.com. I used them when looking for a lasik surgeon.
What I liked the most was that my profile remained anynomyous until I was ready to decide what to do. I received replies from four surgeons that met all the things I was looking for. I liked having that complete control without the sales pressure that some of these places can be known for.
If you are going to go down the cosmetic surgery road...better to be safe than sorry. Check them out.
