Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

Book Appointment

We’re with You All the Way

Laser eye surgery is an exciting prospect. The option to improve your vision permanently, and say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses, can seem miraculous.

However, the idea of eye surgery, or surgery in general, can also be intimidating. That’s why Cowichan Eyecare is here—to provide unbiased assessments, guidance, and critical care for patients considering laser eye surgery.

An initial consultation is key for identifying whether you are suited for laser eye surgery. Should you choose to undergo the procedure, you’ll need help preparing for your surgery and recovering afterwards. To help you make an informed decision and ensure a smooth recovery, Cowichan Eyecare is here to support you. 

How Do We Determine Candidacy?

Despite how common laser eye surgery has become, not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. During your initial consultations, we review everything from your eye health to your lifestyle.

You might be a candidate if:

  • You have healthy eyes.
  • Your cornea is the right thickness. (If your cornea is too thin or has an extremely uneven surface, surgery could impair rather than improve your vision.)
  • Your prescription is not too high.
  • Your vision has been stable for at least a year. (If your prescription changes frequently, you may not be a good candidate.)
  • You are in good health, and you are not pregnant.

One of the most important things is to have realistic expectations. It’s important to fully understand and consider the potential risks and side effects of laser eye surgery before committing to the procedure. 

Further, you should have a firm grasp of what results you should expect—every individual is different. Our team will thoroughly explain the surgery process and what possible results you can expect. Additionally, we can address any concerns or questions you may have. 

Preparing for Surgery

Once we’ve determined if you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery, we can address any questions or concerns you have and give you an idea of what to expect during the surgery. We will also let you know what sort of results you can expect to achieve and what your recovery may look like.

After these initial talks, we will go through a checklist of things you should do to prepare for your surgery. These will vary based on the individual, but some key items apply to everyone. These include arranging for someone you trust to drive you home, ensuring your medical history is accurate and up-to-date, and booking follow-up appointments so we can closely monitor your recovery.

The Recovery Process

When your surgery is complete, we can follow up accordingly to monitor your recovery and healing process. Though we will have prepared you on what to expect post-surgery, we will also ask questions and perform appropriate checkups to help ensure your recovery is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

We make sure that we are available for your calls or questions so that you can rest easy and focus on your recovery.
