What to Expect During Your First LASIK Consult


What to Expect at Your First LASIK Consultation

Consultations are necessary prior to receiving LASIK eye surgery because your eye doctor needs to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. 

Basic Breakdown

To book your LASIK consultation at our Austin, TX office, please contact us directly. Once you have your appointment scheduled, be advised that if you are currently wearing contact lenses you will need to stop wearing them for at least two weeks (14 days) prior to your consultation.

During your LASIK consultation at Howerton Eye Clinic, your eye doctor will perform a few preliminary tests to certify that LASIK eye surgery is right for you. The entire LASIK consultation will generally take a little over an hour. Afterwards, your eye doctor will discuss the results of your tests, which will determine if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery.
