What to Expect

Step 1. Consultation

Laser Surgery Sydney - Perfect Vision Laser Correction

  • The consultation is a thorough, two-hour eye examination with an ophthalmic surgeon.
  • In preparation, it is preferable, but not absolutely essential, that soft contact lenses are not to be worn for at least seven days prior to the appointment and hard contact lenses must not be worn for four weeks prior.
  • At the completion of the consultation, you will be told which procedure is suitable for you, why, and what are the expected outcomes.

  • Generally, soft contact lenses cannot be worn for a week before the procedure and hard contact lenses cannot be worn for four weeks before, although this will vary for each individual.
  • No eye makeup, hairsprays or strongly perfumed deodorant should be worn on the day of your procedure.
  • You should organise someone to accompany you home after the procedure.
  • Bring a pair of sunglasses, as eyes can be sensitive to glare post-procedure.
