LASIK Pre- and Post-Op

LASIK surgery has become a very common, safe, and effective way of correcting a person's vision, so they don't need glasses or contact lenses anymore. At Montana Eyecare, we're here to help patients in the local Helena area get the vision correction they need. If you're thinking about LASIK in Helena, or you just want to talk about LASIK surgery as one of your options, reaching out to us can help get that process started. We'll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.

LASIK Pre- and Post-Op

Pre-Op Information for LASIK

As you plan and prepare for your LASIK surgery, you want to make sure you follow the pre-op instructions very carefully. That way, you'll have the highest chance of an easy, successful surgery without any additional risk or the need to reschedule it. If you wear contact lenses, you'll need to leave them out for a few days before the procedure and wear glasses instead. This way, your eyes will be as natural as they can be, without any variance from the lenses you were wearing.

You'll also want to avoid alcohol and ask your doctor about any medications you're taking to ensure they don't interfere with the surgery. Talk about allergies, concerns, prior eye surgery or injury, and other factors that may influence your LASIK surgery procedure.

Post-Op Care Is Essential

Post-op care is just as important for your LASIK surgery as pre-op care. You'll be given eye drops to use and instructed on how many drops to use, how often, and for how long. You'll also generally sleep in goggles or special glasses, so you don't accidentally rub your eyes during the night. You mustn't touch your eyes for several days while your corneas heal. You don't want to damage the healing process or create a risk of infection. Your eye doctor will monitor you closely.

LASIK Is a Very Safe Surgery

You can feel confident when you choose LASIK in Helena. Studies show its long-term effects, and they're all encouraging. You won't need to worry about a serious issue cropping up months or years later after your eyes have healed. The safety of LASIK is one of the biggest reasons for its success.
