All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



Will you patch my eyes afterwards ?

You will only need a clear shield that you can see through in the fisrt 24 hours. I prefer that you wear the same shield at night for about a week or so. Lasek patients will have a contact lens in their eye for about a week. This lens has no power, it is just a bandage to reduce discomfort.
