Your pre-LASIK consultation is very important and shouldn't be rushed. We have to be sure you meet all the criteria for this type of eye surgery. You should expect to experience the following during your consultation:
Additionally, because contact lenses can change the curvature of your corneas, we ask that you stop wearing your contacts before your consultation. The amount of time will vary depending on the type of lenses worn. Soft lenses typically need to be removed 24 hours before the appointment, while hard lenses require at least 4 weeks. This time period changes for every patient, however, so make sure you follow the instructions of your eye doctor first.
Please also keep in mind that you shouldn't sleep with your contact lenses in for at least a week prior your consultation and that the guidelines above pertain only to the eye undergoing the procedure.
