Prior to initiating the LASIK for myopia (nearsightedness),
hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, you will need to undergo
a series of preoperative tests in order to make certain you get the
most accurate correction and follow-up possible.
Many of the tests
previously performed may be repeated the day of your surgery, especially
if you recently discontinued wearing contact lenses. Repeating
these tests helps ensure accuracy and predictability so there’s no
need to be concerned.
If you wear soft contact lenses, you will
need to stop wearing them for at least one week prior to surgery.
you wear hard (or gas-permeable) contact lenses, you will need to
stop wearing them at least two weeks prior to surgery.
testing is completed and your consent forms are signed, you will
