Pre-LASIK Check-up

Thorough pre-LASIK eye examination

Points to note before pre-LASIK eye examination

  • Patients who wear soft contact lenses need to stop wearing contact lenses one week before the eye examination.
  • Patients who wear hard contact lenses are required to stop wearing contact lenses 4 weeks before the eye examination.
  • Notify our staff of any drug allergy as soon as possible.

Points to note on the day of pre-LASIK eye examination

  • The eye examination will take about 1 to 2 hours.
  • During the eye examination, pupil dilating eye drops may be applied. As a result of this, the patient will experience blurred vision, especially when looking at close objects. The effects will last for an average of 4 to 6 hours to up to 24 hours.
  • Bring along a pair of sun glasses.
  • Do not drive when the pupil is still in dilation.

Before the LASIK procedure, patients are required to go through a comprehensive eye examination to evaluate if they are fit for LASIK.

Items in LASIK eye examination:

  • Visual acuity and refraction examination
  • Pupil measurement
  • Corneal topography, thickness and shape measurement
  • Aberration evaluation
  • Tear quality assessment
  • General eye health check, covering such as eye pressure, glaucoma, cataract and retinal health
