What Happens at My Consultation?


The LASIK Consultation at Pacific Eye Specialists is designed to be an information-gathering process…both for our staff and for you. Because LASIK is not always the best procedure for every patient, we advise potential patients to come in for the Consultation before spending too much time researching LASIK.

During the Consultation you will meet our front desk staff, our technicians and the doctor who will perform your surgery. We want you to feel 100% comfortable at our office and 100% confident that you are making the right decision to pursue LASIK.

We will only approve you for LASIK if we feel you have an excellent chance of improving your vision.

Our LASIK Consultation typically takes 60-90 minutes and involves:

  • Multiple scans of your eye to determine your exact vision characteristics
  • Corneal thickness measurement
  • Overview of your medical history
  • Identification of any eye diseases or other conditions

This is also the perfect time for you to ask our staff questions, like:

  • What is the cost of LASIK?
  • How many procedures has the doctor performed?
  • What medical training does he/she have?
  • What types of LASIK technologies will be used?
  • How will the procedure be performed?
  • What are the risks of LASIK?
  • How long will the recovery be?

We will provide you with educational materials to take home so you can think about your options. Contact us today to schedule your LASIK Consultation.
