You will be required to return to our office after your LASIK procedure for the vital post-operative appointments. These appointments will be scheduled either before or after your laser vision correction surgery.
Patient Care After the LASIK Procedure
After your first post-operative visit, there are two additional post-operative examinations required:
- Additional visit at 1 year for PRK
- Regular yearly checkups thereafter
Each post-operative appointment is vital to the success of your treatment, even if it seems your vision is perfect. Sometimes complications can start small and be unnoticeable to the patient. Most of the time, Dr. Cutarelli can detect an arising complication during your post-op visit before the situation escalates.
If You Were Referred by Another Eye Doctor
You may schedule post-operative care with your original eye care professional if you prefer. We are happy to work with other practices to manage your post-op care. Please keep in mind that you must make your follow-up appointments with that office prior to your surgery date and that you are responsible for any additional fees. Be prepared to furnish Cutarelli Vision with the pertinent information and completed forms necessary for the transfer. We are happy to facilitate this process for you.
Address All Concerns Immediately
Additionally, Dr. Cutarelli will want to know if you have any concerns about your vision or your eyes at any time.
