LASIK SURGERY PRE-OPERATIVE INSTRUCTIONS
If you want to get the best eye care available, you have a lot of alternatives. Over the years, one treatment option has gained in favor, allowing patients to see perfectly without the use of corrective glasses. LASIK is that treatment option. People with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism no longer need glasses to see clearly, thanks to LASIK.
In order to achieve the optimal recovery experience, patients should follow a number of instructions before and after LASIK surgery. Let's concentrate on the pre-operative instructions for the time being.
