Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

Request An 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 who are considering laser eye surgery.

An initial consultation is key for identifying whether you are suited for laser eye surgery, and 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 help ensure a smooth recovery, Cowichan Eyecare is here to help.

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 to remember 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.

Preparing for Surgery

Once we’ve determined that you are a good candidate for laser eye surgery, we will address any questions or concerns you may 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 will 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 that go for 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 will follow-up accordingly to check that your recovery process is going smoothly and your eyes are healing correctly. Though we will have primed you on what to expect post-surgery, we will also ask questions and perform appropriate check-ups to help ensure your recovery is as smooth and painless as possible.

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

We’re Here to Help

At Cowichan Eyecare, patient comfort and high-quality care are our top priorities. We work hard to earn and keep your trust. If you are considering laser eye surgery, please contact Cowichan Eyecare to book your consultation.
