If you are sick and tired of having to put in contacts every day then it may be time for you to strongly consider getting Lasik eye surgery. During this vision corrective surgery, we will reshape your cornea which corrects refraction in the eye; leaving you with better vision and without the need to wear contacts or glasses. To make sure that your surgery goes as well as possible, we have created a list of a few things for you to do beforehand.
Stop Wearing Contacts Two Weeks Beforehand
One thing to know about contact lenses is that they can distort the shape of your cornea which can affect the results of your surgery. To make sure that your eyes are prepared for surgery, we encourage all of our patients to stop wearing their lenses two weeks prior to surgery.
Avoid Alcohol and Medications
The good news is that you don’t have to fast before you come into our office for Lasik eye surgery. However, one thing to be aware of is that you should avoid drinking alcohol before you come in because it could interfere with your surgery and inhibit your ability to drive properly.
Arrange for a Ride Home
Even though you can drive yourself to our office for Lasik, we always encourage patients to get a ride home afterward because your eyes may still be blurry and you may still be experiencing some of the effects of the medication. If you don’t have anyone to pick you up, call our office ahead of time and we can try to arrange a ride home for you.
If you have any questions or concerns about how you can prepare for LASIK eye surgery, contact us at our Pontiac or Clarkston office today at (248) 334-4931.
