If you have recently made the decision to have laser eye surgery, you likely have a lot of questions regarding what you should and should not do before your operation, as well as what to expect on the day of your surgery. We have compiled a list of pre-operative instructions for patients for the week and night before your procedure:

LASIK Pre-Operative: Week Before Your Surgery

  • Prior to the day of your LASIK surgery, fill any prescription medications you were given and plan to bring them with you on the day of your surgery.
  • Arrange for a driver to and from your surgery, and expect the total time in our Center on surgery day to be around two hours.
  • Be ready to bring your method of payment with you to the surgery.
  • Review the consent form and complete the patient sections.
  • Make sure you complete the Pre-Op appointment with a dilated exam. This is done either at our Center or at your eye doctor’s office (if applicable). If you need more information, contact us at 1-855-Trust-LVC.

LASIK Pre-Operative: Night Before Your Surgery

  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages the night before your LASIK eye surgery. While one to two drinks are permissible, dehydration can occur if you consume more than that. Dehydration can affect the outcome of your LASIK surgery.
  • Get plenty of rest.

Please call our team with any questions! We are here to provide any information we can to ease any nerves and prepare you for your LASIK surgery. When you choose LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland, you will receive comprehensive patient support both before and after your surgery.

About Lasik Vision Centers of Cleveland

Alan Cox Radio Personality

"I had always been near-sighted and I was tired of straining to focus, even while wearing my glasses. After LASIK, there’s no more squinting, no more glasses, and no side-effects at all. I owe all of my near-superhero visual abilities to Dr. Eippert."

Kenneth Jordan Google Local Guide

"Everything went extremely well. They are very thorough about everything from beginning to end. I wish I would have done this a long time ago. I couldn't be happier. Quick, easy, fairly fast recovery. I was able to see perfect within 24 hours."

Matt Fetter

"I had my LASIK surgery a few days ago, and I definitely wish I had committed to doing it years ago. From start to finish, the doctors and staff at LVC were fantastic. They answered all of my questions and really put my mind at ease about the procedure. I am now seeing 20/20 (actually, 20/15 in one eye) and it’s fantastic."

Jessica Bocian

"LVC is amazing. The customer service they provide is wonderful and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of Lasik."

Samantha Arotzarena

"I was referred to LVC by my eye doctor, and I am so glad he partnered with this amazing team. Everyone in the office is extremely helpful and very caring. Dr. Eippert is an amazing surgeon and is very clear on what he needs from you as a patient. He took the time to call me after my surgery to make sure I was still doing ok. LVC has top-of-the-line equipment which makes for an easy and painless surgery. I have recommended LVC to all my friends and relatives looking to get Lasik. I would not go anywhere else!"

Dagmar de Lange

"Best thing I ever did! I just did my one week follow-up appointment after LASIK last week and I have 20/20 vision! Dr. Eippert and his team made this whole experience so comfortable and easy. Dr. Eippert even called me the evening after the surgery to make sure I felt fine. I highly recommend Lasik Vision Centers of Cleveland!"
