Lasik is currently one of the world’s most popular laser eye surgeries, with over 700,000 surgeries performed each year. Most people have a basic understanding of Lasik surgery — it’s a laser surgical procedure used to restore your eyesight, so you’re no longer reliant on glasses and contact lenses. Most people want to say goodbye to their prescriptions once and for all — but are you a suitable candidate for Lasik surgery?

At Pack and Bianes Vision Care, our optometrists administer various eye tests to determine if you’re the right candidate for a Lasik surgery. For more information, contact us today.

Introduction to Lasik Surgery

Lasik is a type of surgery used to correct refractive errors in your eyes. A refractive error occurs when your eyes don’t bend light properly, usually because of problems in the shape of the corneas. As such, the Lasik surgery is a suitable treatment for refractive errors like farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia), and astigmatism (generally blurry vision).

During the Lasik surgery, the eye surgeon uses a laser to modify the shape of your cornea to ensure it bends light correctly, restoring optimal 20/20 vision. The Lasik surgery allows you to get rid of your glasses and contacts, embracing crystal-clear vision. The entire procedure concludes within 15 minutes, and you can see the final results in 3 to 6 months. Lasik surgery has a 99% patient satisfaction rate and a nearly perfect success rate.

Your Lasik Consultation in Terra Nova

You can only undergo a Lasik surgery after a comprehensive Lasik consultation. During the Lasik consultation, your optometrist in Terra Nova administers a series of tests, examinations, and assessments to rule out possible underlying eye problems and health concerns that may preclude you from getting a Lasik surgery. You should arrange to have someone drive you back after the Lasik consultation because your pupils will have to be dilated during the tests. The following is a brief overview of the tests conducted during the Lasik consultation.

Eyesight Tests

The eye doctor will administer a series of eyesight and visual acuity tests to evaluate your prescription. The doctor will determine if there have been any recent changes to your prescription. You’ll be familiar with most of the tests because they’re the same as your routine eye exams.


The eye doctor will accurately measure your eyes and corneas — these details will be necessary for the Lasik surgery. You’re advised against wearing contact lenses for a few weeks before the procedure because they make small changes to your corneal shape, impacting the treatment results.


If you’re found to be a suitable candidate for Lasik surgery, the eye doctor will discuss all the procedure’s details. They’ll take you through every step of the Lasik process, from the preparation to the recovery. This is your time to clarify any potential questions or concerns.
