Providence Eye Laser Suite
On the day of your LASIK surgery, you can expect to be at our office for 1.5 hours. A lot will happen on this day, but the procedure itself only takes about 5 minutes per eye! During your LASIK consultation, you will have received detailed information about the following:
Upon scheduling your LASIK procedure, prescriptions for necessary eye drops will be sent to your preferred pharmacy. These are typically covered by insurance, but the price does vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Please remember to arrange for a driver to take you home after your LASIK procedure.
Please bring all of your medications and eye drops that you got from your pharmacy.
Upon arrival at our office, you will do the following:
Please decide in advance how you will be paying for your procedure. Your options are:
If you are paying for your LASIK using a credit card, we recommend that you call your credit card company in advance to make them aware of the LASIK surgery charge. If you have questions about any of these, please see our blog articles about paying for LASIK, or give our office a call to discuss your payment methods.
Once you have checked in, one of our ophthalmic technicians will take you to an exam room.
One of our ophthalmic technicians will then escort you to our laser suite and turn you over to the care of the surgical technician to prep you for your LASIK surgery. We will never leave your side.
If you are having PRK all-laser, no-flap surgery, you will skip the WaveLight FS200 and your procedure will start at this point.
You can expect your eyes to water, be sensitive to light and have some burning sensation for a few hours, so we suggest you go home and sleep through this part of it. By the time you wake up, your eyes should be comfortable and you will begin to see the results from your laser eye surgery.
We will see you the very next morning for your one-day post-op appointment where Dr. Mozayeni will check your vision and ensure that your corneas are healing appropriately. At this point, you will be approved to drive and go back to most of your normal daily activities. Please refer to your post-operative instructions for details about drops and minor restrictions.
