Attending all LASIK post-op visits is absolutely critical to the recovery process. Most surgeons schedule a series of these appointments for each surgery patient before the procedure is completed. These post-op visits are very important because they enable the surgeon to evaluate the way in which the eye is healing and determine whether or not there is the need for emergency aftercare or follow up procedures. Most surgeons require patients to keep a post-op appointment one day after the surgery to enable the surgeon to evaluate the early healing and the health of the eye. After this initial LASIK post-op visit the surgeon will also likely require regular appointments during the next six months.
