Post-Operative Care

Please remember that your follow-up care is as important as the actual procedure.

LASIK

Following your LASIK procedure, you will be required to attend the following post-operative examinations:

  • 24hrs (must be done at LASIK MD)
  • 1 to 2 weeks
  • 1 month
  • 1 year
  • Any additional post-op visits we determine to be necessary

PRK

Following your PRK procedure, you will be required to attend the following post-operative examinations:

  • 24 hrs (must be done at LASIK MD)
  • Every other day for the first 4 to 5 days following your surgery
  • 1 to 2 weeks
  • 1 month
  • 1 year
  • Any additional post-op visits that we determine to be necessary

The first year of post-operative examinations are included in the cost of surgery. Additional appointments may be required. Please ask about our Vision Enhancement Plans.

In addition to these follow up visits, it is also important to follow the regimen of eye drops, wear your protective sunglasses and to follow the post-surgery recommended activity schedule.

If you choose to use your own eye care professional, your doctor will require post-operative forms. After your 24-hour post-operative appointment, you will receive, via fax, mail or in person, your refractive surgical report and post-op form that you should bring with you to your appointment with your optometrist.

For patients who choose to have post-operative care with their own eye care professional, LASIK MD will not be responsible for any additional charges. LASIK MD will not reimburse either the patient or doctor for any additional charges.
