Pre-LASIK Eye Examination

Prior to LASIK vision correction surgery, our professionals will perform a comprehensive eye examination to ensure that you are a good candidate for undergoing LASIK treatment. The pre-LASIK vision correction evaluation (LASIK CONSULTATION & PRE LASIK SAFETY TESTS) should include:

History Taking
Visual Acuity Testing
Refraction
Keratometry (measurement of corneal curvature)
Slit Lamp Examination
Pupillary measurements
Tear Film Analysis
Glaucoma Testing
Pachymetry (measurement of corneal thickness)
Detailed Retinal Evaluation with Dilatation.
Corneal Topography
FACT, LVCA (Low contrast Visual Acuity)
Aberrometry Test.
Pentacam Test
For your own safety we request you to not self-drive home after the tests as the vision may be slightly blurry for a couple of hours.
