To find out if you’re a candidate for Laser Eye Surgery, you first need to book in for a Comprehensive Eye Exam with an Optometrist.
This eye exam will include dilation and will evaluate the health of your eye as well as your current spectacle prescription. Your prescription should be stable for at least one year before going for surgery and our doctors recommend that you be at least 20 years old.
You will then be referred and scheduled in for an assessment at one of the laser centers and prior to this assessment, if you wear contact lenses, you will need to discontinue wear for at least 2 weeks.
If you are deemed an eligible candidate for surgery and go through with the procedure, you will receive post-operative care from your Optometrist for one year following surgery and this is included in the price of your surgery.
