How do I prepare for a photorefractive keratectomy?

ANSWER

First, you’ll meet with an eye surgeon or a coordinator to talk about what you should expect during and after surgery. He or she will discuss your medical history and check your eyes. Likely tests include:

  • Corneal thickness measure
  • Refraction
  • Corneal mapping
  • Eye pressure check

After that, your surgeon will answer any questions you have. Then you’ll schedule your surgery.
