All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



Do I have also have to remove my lenses before the surgery too ?

If you want to follow the fda-recommendations, the answer is yes. The best way to go about it if you really do not want to stay out of lenses is to go for an evaluation, set a date for your surgery and then stay out of your lenses (once) for the required period. You then just go back for a quick check 2 days before your procedure.

go back
