If you are considering vision correction surgery as an alternative to contact lenses and glasses, then you should call us to schedule an initial evaluation. (Click on contact us, or call 800-9LASER6) Before your visit you will be sent a packet of information that you should fill out and bring with you to your evaluation. Please be sure to remove your contact lenses prior to your visit (for a minimum of 7 days prior for soft contact lenses and 5 weeks for hard or gas permeable lenses).
We are currently performing refractive evaluations at no charge in our Bala Cynwyd, PA office and our Marlton, NJ office. We have day, evening and weekend appointments available. To schedule your free evaluation, please call 800-9LASER6.
At this visit, please plan to spend between 2 and 3 hours with us as we will be going through the following testing procedures:
- Visual Acuity Testing
- Dominant Eye Testing (for monovision analysis)
- Pupillary measurements
- Corneal Measurements, including Topography, Curvature and Thickness
- Tear Film Analysis
- Slit Lamp Examination
- Glaucoma Testing
- Dilated Exam to determine retinal health
You will meet with a refractive coordinator and your surgeon. You will undergo a thorough evaluation that will assess your eyes for candidacy as a refractive surgery patient. Your surgeon will develop a plan for the reduction of your dependency on glasses and contact lenses. Because we perform the widest range of FDA-approved refractive procedures, we have great success in finding the appropriate procedure to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and even lowering your dependency on reading glasses as you get older.
We will discuss costs, payment plans, scheduling, informed consent – reviewing possible complications, and postoperative co-management options at this visit. By the time you leave our office, you will have a full understanding of refractive surgery and how it relates to you. After the exam is complete, you will be given dark spectacles that will help you with the glare induced by the dilating drops. You are more than welcome to have someone accompany you to your initial examination.
When you decide to schedule surgery, you will be given a packet of information detailing preoperative instructions. And we will also provide you with your informed consent documents which we ask you to read prior to surgery. We are always more than happy to answer any remaining questions or any questions that arise after reading your literature.
