What happens before LASIK surgery?

ANSWER

You'll meet with a coordinator or eye surgeon to discuss what to expect during and after the procedure. Your medical history will be reviewed and your eyes will be fully examined. Initial tests often include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, corneal mapping, air pressure, and pupil dilation. Then you'll meet the surgeon, who can answer any questions you may have.
