Our LASIK Care Guide

Life-changing vision is a journey. We’re here to guide you along the way.

What to Expect Before LASIK Surgery

Prior to any scheduled LASIK surgery at Borough Lasik Center, we require you to undergo our free suitability test to determine your eligibility for LASIK surgery.
Comprehensive Eye Screening
Once you’ve passed our free suitability test, our optometrists will carry out a comprehensive eye screening. This assessment only takes 15-30 minutes during which we will check every aspect of your eye to determine an accurate diagnosis and plan our personalized treatment plan. We’ll then go through a pre-operative consultation with your surgeon who will give final approval for your surgery.  
Taking Care of Yourself Before LASIK
Remember to take care of your eyes, and yourself. Make sure to have at least 6-8 hours of sleep before your LASIKsurgery, eat a light meal so you have enough energy during and after your procedure, avoid drinking alcohol the night before or the day of your surgery, and wear comfortable clothes to your appointment. 
Reminders from the Borough Lasik Center Team
Our team will get in touch with you prior to your scheduled appointment to check in and remind you of our preoperative LASIK procedures. But, our most important reminder: make sure you are ready.

If you don’t feel well or need to cancel your scheduled appointment, please get in touch with our team as soon as possible so we can make any necessary changes.  

What to Expect During LASIK Surgery

We know getting surgery can be nerve wracking, but rest assured that you’re in the safe hands and capable care of our team. We make sure that your experience is smooth and safe so you leave ready to achieve your goals, now with clearer vision. 
You’re in Experienced Hands
You deserve the best. And that’s exactly what we bring you at Borough Lasik Center. We have years of experience transforming over 7,000 visions using the latest and best in LASIK technology.

Prior to your surgery, you can sit down with our nurses who will guide you through our aftercare procedure and give you our post-operative kit that includes eye drops, your Borough Lasik Center passport for follow-up visits, and our 24-hour patient helpline.  
Bring a Friend
We encourage you to bring a friend or family member with you on the day of your surgery. This is so you not only feel more comfortable during the procedure, but so you have help getting home after your surgery as your vision may be blurry.

However, if you can’t bring a companion, don’t worry. Let our team know so they can help in booking you a ride home.
 7 Minutes for a Lifetime of Clearer Vision
Your laser eye treatment takes, on average, seven minutes per eye. That’s about the length of the song Hey Jude by The Beatles. It’s a very short procedure for a lifetime of clearer vision. 

What to Expect After LASIK Surgery

Now that you’ve had your LASIK surgery, you’re on the road to a lifetime of seeing brighter. To make sure you have the best possible recovery, we offer a free 5 year Aftercare Program that covers doctor follow-up visits up to 12 months following your procedure.. 
Normal Post-Op Discomfort
As with any surgery, there is some normal post-op discomfort you may experience. Directly after your laser eye treatment you may feel some light burning, tearing, or sensitivity to light for the first few hours. It’s also normal to feel like something is in your eye. But remember, avoid rubbing your eyes as this can dislodge the corneal flap.
5 Year Aftercare Program
We believe in taking care of you every step of the way. That’s why we offer a free 5 year aftercare program and free doctor follow up visits for the first 12 months after your LASIK surgery. On average this includes five appointments: after the first 24 hours, after the first week, after the first month, after the first three months, and after the first year. 
Resuming Normal Life
Depending on the type of surgery performed, the time before resuming normal activities may differ. However, on average you’ll have full recovery within 48 hours and within the first week you can start to resume light exercise if your vision allows. Just be careful not to get hit or bumped in your eyes.

After your first month you should be able to include more strenuous exercise. Just remember to protect your eyes and follow our aftercare program. If you’re ever unsure of anything, we’re just a call away.
