At your appointment, the refractive surgery coordinator will discuss pricing and financial options with you. Please keep in mind that LASIK surgery is considered an elective surgery so insurance will not cover it. We do have some great financial options listed below.
You are welcome to take the self-test but here are a few things you need to know before scheduling a consultation.
1. If you wear soft contact lenses you will need to be out of them for 2 weeks prior. If you wear hard contact lenses or gas permeable lenses you will need to be out of them for 3 weeks prior. (This is to ensure you get the most precise/accurate measurements)
2. You will be dilated most of the day so please bring a driver with you.
3. We will do an extremely thorough evaluation so please allow three-four hours out of your day for this appointment.
4. You need to have been in a stable prescription for at least 2 years.
5. YOU MUST BE 18 OR OLDER
Lasik technology has been approved by the FDA and has been used in millions of vision correction procedures worldwide. In fact, NASA astronauts and U.S. aviators are able to have laser vision correction surgery today because of studies that validate the safety and effectiveness of these technologies.
