The first step is an initial consultation and examination. At the initial consultation we see if you are a suitable candidate, which method fits your eyes best, and how much the cost will be. If you are a suitable candidate and decide to proceed with a vision correction, the next step is the big preliminary examination. At this preliminary examination you need to have taken at least a 1 week break from soft contact lenses, and a 2 week break from hard contacts. We will also dilate your pupils with eye drops on the day of the examination to look into the background of your eye.
Please bring your sunglasses, as you can be slightly sensitive to glare after this appointment. For the appointment you should plan for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. The eye drops that we use to keep dilation usually last approximately up to 24 hours, which means that you can no longer drive your car or any other vehicle on that day. Within the following six weeks, we will then carry out the correction. After the surgery a minimum of 3 follow-up examinations are required. One day after surgery, one week after, and a monthly check.
