After Your LASIK Procedure
Who Performs Your Postoperative Care?
You may have a choice of having your postoperative care performed by the surgeon (or another doctor on his staff) or your regular eye doctor. If you are traveling far to be treated by an expert surgeon, you will naturally want to have your eye doctor close to home take care of you. If the surgeon is located nearby, you may still wish to have your regular eye doctor provide your routine postoperative care.
Your eye doctor will check your vision and examine your eyes to ensure proper healing, and he or she can provide temporary eyeglasses or contact lenses if needed during the healing process. After you have healed, he or she can also help you make the decision about whether or not enhancement is appropriate if your vision is not perfect. Your regular eye doctor will stay in close contact with the surgeon in case any difficulties arise during your postoperative course.Your Self-Care Regimen »
