Your First Visit to LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland
What is the first step in the LASIK eye surgery process? First, you must choose your LASIK eye surgeon in the Cleveland area. If you have chosen LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland, the process will begin with a comprehensive initial consultation, the key to determining your vision correction needs. In order to evaluate your sight, we will ask about your eyes, your general health, and medications that you take. It is helpful for you to bring a list of medications (drops or pills) with dosages you are presently using. If you wear glasses, bring them with you as well.
This initial LASIK consultation appointment can last from one to three hours and will include a thorough eye exam and tests, usually including eye dilation. For your comfort, you may want to bring a pair of dark sunglasses and arrange to have someone drive you home.
Following the examination, we will review our findings, thoroughly explain your treatment options with bladeless LASIK technology, and address your concerns. If another physician has referred you, a summary of your exam will be sent to your doctor, under whose care you will remain.
Many patients come to us with a number of questions: For example, are you awake during LASIK? Will LASIK surgery be painful? How much does LASIK cost? We have the answers to your most frequently asked questions:
