Embarking on a LASIK consultation is your first step towards crystal-clear vision, free from the hassle of glasses or contacts. At this initial meeting, our expert surgeons at Twin Cities Eye Consultants assess your eye health and discuss how LASIK can be tailored to your vision needs. This comprehensive evaluation is not just about measurements—it’s about understanding how LASIK can enhance your life. You’ll have the opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, the recovery, or the investment involved. Come prepared to discover how LASIK could help you see the world with new eyes.

How to Prepare for Your LASIK Consultation

In preparation for your consultation, stop your contact lens use a few weeks prior—one to two weeks for soft lenses and three to four weeks for hard or gas-permeable lenses—as they can affect the measurements of your eye and cornea. Bring your eyeglass prescription history and prepare a list of questions about the procedure, recovery, and investment. We recommend using preservative-free artificial tears 3-4x per day prior to your consultation to ensure the images of your eye that are obtained at your consultation are high quality. If possible, we also recommend the use of fish oil before your consultation.

The Initial Eye Examination: What Happens?

Your journey to improved vision begins with a detailed eye examination to determine your suitability for LASIK. Expect a comfortable, pain-free experience where your cornea’s shape and thickness are precisely measured. This essential step is crucial for customizing a LASIK plan that’s uniquely yours.

Discussing Your Visual Goals with the Surgeon

During your consultation, discussing your vision goals is pivotal. Whether you aim to completely forego glasses or simply wish to reduce your dependence on them, LASIK offers a transformative solution. Our surgeons will carefully evaluate whether LASIK suits your needs and what the procedure can realistically achieve for you.

Understanding the Value of LASIK

While considering LASIK, it’s important to weigh its lasting benefits against the minimal risks.  Twin Cities Eye Consultants offers the most advanced technology allowing most patients to achieve 20/20 vision or better.   Imagine the freedom and enhanced quality of life without glasses or contact lenses! Advances in technology have made LASIK safer than ever, minimizing risks and maximizing outcomes.

Exploring Alternatives to LASIK

If LASIK isn’t suitable for you, don’t worry—we have alternatives! PRK and Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) are viable options, ensuring there’s a solution tailored just for your eyes.

Ensuring LASIK is Right for You

A thorough discussion of your medical history during the consultation helps confirm your suitability for LASIK. Ensuring you’re a prime candidate is our top priority, which means having stable, healthy eyes.

Next Steps After Your Consultation

If you decide to proceed with LASIK, choosing your surgery date is just the beginning. Discussing payment and understanding the full value of your investment is crucial. Remember, investing in LASIK often proves more economical in the long run compared to ongoing costs for glasses or contacts. Twin Cities Eye Consultants offers 0% interest financing and our Price Match Guarantee to ensure you’re getting the best value.
