Quick Tips About Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery is a quick and easy procedure for individuals with different vision troubles such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This procedure involves repairing the eye’s focus by fixing the cornea. A common refractive surgery procedure is LASIK. Read on to see how you can prepare for your refractive surgery.

Preparing for Refractive Surgery

Follow these tips to get the most out of your surgery:

  • Stop wearing contact lenses. Switch out your contact lenses for eyeglasses the weeks before your surgery. Contact lenses change the shape of your eyes, leading to an inaccurate measurement of your eyes.
  • Avoid eye makeup. For at least one day before your procedure, avoid using eye makeup, creams, or perfumes.
  • Arrange a ride. Prepare ahead of time by organizing a ride home after your surgery with a family or friend. You will not be in the position to drive yourself home.

What to Expect

Before your surgery begins, your doctor will discuss any concerns he might have. He will go into detail of the risks and benefits as well as what you can expect after the procedure is complete. Feel free to bring up any questions you might have with the procedure to your eye doctor. Refractive surgery is quick, easy, and safe. You should be in and out in 30 minutes.
