LASIK is not right for everyone and a comprehensive LASIK examination and evaluation is necessary to determine if you are a candidate. Dr. Pernelli requires that all candidates undergo a series of non-invasive, painless tests to include:
- Measurements of your refractive error
- Corneal thickness testing
- Dry eye testing
- Tests to rule out any underlying ocular disease
After your testing is complete, Dr. Pernelli will analyze the information obtained and determine if you meet the qualifications for a successful outcome. He will address any fears or concerns that you may have and explain the procedure and follow up care. You will be given ample opportunity to speak personally with Dr. Pernelli and we advise that you have a relative or friend attend the evaluation with you as your second set of ears. When LASIK surgery is determined to be your best treatment option for clearer vision it will be scheduled with Dr. Pernelli on a day and time that is right for you.
