OTHER THINGS We Should Tell You
It’s laser eye surgery
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all “LASIK.” There are a few other procedures that you can have completed to make you less dependent on glasses and contacts. We won’t get into all the technical details here, but feel free to ask us to break it down for you.
The bad news: You won’t have to miss that much work
Don’t go telling your boss you need to take a month off for the procedure. She’ll probably call you out on that little lie. It’s common knowledge that you may be able to return to a relatively normal routine the day after laser eye surgery, but you should be as good as new by the third day.
We’ll get to know your eyes better than you do
Patients are thoroughly evaluated prior to the procedure, so we’ll know every detail about your eyes by the time we’re done. Some of the reasons why you might not be a good candidate for the surgery include having very thin corneas or having extreme or uncontrolled diabetes, glaucoma, a weakened immune system, or dry eye. However, advancements in eye care are made regularly, so if you were unable to get laser eye surgery in the past, give it another shot. A lot might have changed since that time, so ask us if any recent developments in eye care make a difference in your prognosis.
