Preparing for LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery requires considerable preparation. Prior to LASIK in Atlanta, you’ll need a complete eye examination by your refractive surgeon including the following tests and evaluation:

If you are approved for LASIK surgery, you will be asked to stop wearing your contact lenses for a while before the surgery. Contacts can temporarily change the shape of the cornea. Your cornea should be in its natural shape the day of surgery. Preparing for LASIK surgery also requires you to stop wearing makeup, lotions or perfume for a few days before surgery. These products can interfere with the laser treatment or increase the risk of infection after surgery.

On the day of your LASIK surgery, you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home.
