What Happens the Day of My Procedure?


Many of our patients say that the day of their LASIK procedure changed their lives because it was the start of their visual freedom.

The day of your LASIK procedure at Pacific Eye Specialists will go something like this:

  1. Arrive at the pre-determined state-of-the-art surgery center (Stanford Eye Laser Center or the UCB Refractive Surgery Center) 15 minutes prior to your scheduled surgery time.
  2. Fill out any necessary paperwork with our staff.
  3. Begin to relax in our pre-op suite. We may prescribe a relaxation medication if you are feeling nervous.
  4. Enter our surgical suite and our doctors will explain every step of the procedure.
  5. Take all the time you need to relax in the surgical suite after your procedure.
  6. Have someone drive you home, where you should rest or nap for several hours. You should wear an eye shield while you sleep to avoid scratching or rubbing your eye.

Your doctor will provide you with contact information after the procedure in case you have any questions or concerns after you get home. You will be asked to return to the office the following day for your first post-op appointment.
