What Happens at My Consultation?


The VisianICL Consultation at Pacific Eye Specialists often starts out as a LASIK Consultation. This process 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

After the exam, some patients find out that they are not a good candidate for LASIK, perhaps because their corneas are too thin, they have Dry Eye Syndrome or for a different reason. It is at this point that our staff will begin explaining different alternatives to LASIK, like Visian ICL.

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

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

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 this vision correction procedure.

We will provide you with educational materials to take home so you can discuss the process with your loved ones.
