Well, it’s good to know that you’ve finally made the decision to improve your vision and the overall health of your eyes through laser eye surgery. There is no denying the fact that, all of us are well-aware of the benefits associated with the Lasik eye-surgery. However, we also need to know the list of do’s and don’ts before the surgery, while the surgery and after the surgery to get a healthy outcome for our eyes.
Meeting With the Eye-Surgeon before the Surgery:
Before you undergo the Lasik Eye Surgery, a coordinator or an eye-surgeon will meet you and will educate you about what to expect during and after the eye-surgery. The eye-surgery procedure in Toronto has a specific process to follow as the doctors understand the importance of good and healthy eye-sight.
Your medical history will be evaluated and you eyes will be thoroughly examined by the eye-surgeon during the meeting. Once the surgeon is done with the initial tests (which include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, corneal mapping, air pressure and pupil dilation), he’ll help you with your doubts if you’ve any and once you feel that all your questions have been answered, you can go ahead to schedule an appointment for the eye-surgery.
Things to Do before Lasik Eye-Surgery:
There are certain steps that you need to take care of before your Lasik eye-surgery. You should stop wearing your rigid gas permeable contact lenses at least three weeks before the evaluation process. For any other types of contact lenses, you should stop wearing them at least three days before the evaluation. By any chance, if you wear glasses, make sure to bring them to your doctor before the eye-surgery, so that your prescription can be reviewed.
On the Day of the surgery:
Have a light meal before going to the eye-surgery and make sure to take all your prescribed medications.
Do not go for any sort of eye-makeup and also avoid any heavy or bulky accessories for your hairdo as it can interfere with the proper positioning of your head while the surgery.
After the Surgery:
Your doctor will give you prescription eye drops to prevent infection and inflammation. Another set of eye-drops will be given to you to relieve your eyes from being dry due to the after-effects of the surgery.
Every eye-surgery in Toronto has a specific follow-up procedure and after your first visit to the doctor (in the first 24-48 hours post-surgery), you may need to revisit him/her at regular intervals within the first six months.
