Your eye doctor can help prepare you for your LASIK surgery. However, there are a few things that you should know.
A day or two before your surgery, avoid wearing any eye makeup. You should also not use creams, liniments, or other products on or around your eyes. You may also be asked to wash your face, specifically your eye area, before coming in for your procedure. This is to ensure that there is no dirt or debris around the surgical site.
You will also need to take some time off from work. Although LASIK is a quick procedure, your eyes will take a few days to be back to full capacity.
When you are getting ready to go in for your surgery, do not wear any accessories or jewelry. This could get in the way of the lasers that are used during the procedure. Dress simply and comfortably.
You should also make plans to get a ride to and from your surgery. Your vision will not be ready for the road for a few days, so you should not drive.
Before your surgery, you will most likely be able to eat and take medications as usual. However, you should confirm these details with your doctor before the procedure.
