LASIK consultation tipsThe first step towards crisper, clearer vision with LASIK is to schedule a consultation with a board certified ophthalmologist who specializes in laser surgeries including LASIK eye surgery. Known for his world-class expertise and compassionate manner, Dr. Kerry Solomon is one of the most trusted and highly sought-out LASIK surgeons in Charleston and the surrounding area. He strives to make every consultation as efficient as possible for his patients. In this blog post he shares his top tips on preparing for your LASIK consultation.

Tip #1: Complete New Patient Paperwork in Advance

The paperwork requested from new patients provides Dr. Solomon and his team with important information that helps them determine your candidacy for surgery. Taking the time to fill out the paperwork completely will ensure that they have all the information they need to provide you with the best care possible.  It’s also a great idea to fill this paperwork out before you arrive for your appointment to save time and help your consultation run even more efficiently.

Tip #2: Know Your Medical History

In order to qualify for LASIK, you must be in good overall health. During your consultation, your eye doctor will review your complete medical history and ask you about any current medications you are taking. Prior to your consultation, make sure you are familiar with your medical and surgical history and write down the names of any medications you are taking (both prescription and over-the-counter drugs).

Tip #3: Bring Your Calendar

If you are found to be a good candidate for LASIK, the last step of your consultation will be to sit down with one of Dr. Solomon’s surgery counselors to schedule your pre-op measurements and surgery date. It helps to have a good idea of your work schedule, as well as any travel or special occasions you will want to plan around. Dr. Solomon’s team will work with you to make your LASIK experience as convenient as possible.

Tip #4: Compile a List of Questions

Your LASIK consultation is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have regarding the procedure, your surgeon’s qualifications, expected results and the recovery. It is in your best interest to research the procedure and your surgeon well ahead of time and compile a list of questions to bring to your consultation. No question is too big or too small to ask. Remember, Dr. Solomon and his team are more than happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have so you can feel confident in your decision to proceed with LASIK.
