Measurements & Considerations
Your eye doctor will also take rigorous measurements of your eyes and corneas for later use by your surgeon. Because contact lenses can slightly change the shape of your eyes, you will be asked not to wear them for about two weeks prior to your consultation. This is part of ensuring you get the best results with laser eye surgery.
If you are a candidate for Lasik surgery, your eye doctor will also spend time to ensure you understand how the surgery works and what to expect from the recovery period. Perhaps most importantly, your eye doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of Lasik surgery, take time to understand your questions and goals, and help you decide if Lasik surgery is the right option for you.
