Before you are booked in for a Zed eye specialist SG, you are going to meet with an advisor who is going to discuss with you in detail what it is that you should expect during the surgery and even after the surgery is complete. During this session, the doctor or advisor is going to evaluate your medical history so that he or she can make sure that you are fit to undergo surgery. He or she is also going to do various tests on your eyes to help determine whether or not you really need to have a LASIK surgery done on you. The most common eye tests that you are going to undergo include refraction, measuring the thickness of your cornea and also your pupil dilation. Once all these tests have been done and the doctor, surgeon or advisor is satisfied that you really do need to undergo surgery, you are then going to be booked for an appointment.
It is important for you to talk to your lasik doctor so that you are able to know the specific guidelines that you are going to be expected to follow. For instance, if you are wearing contact lenses, you may be required not to make use of them for at least 3 weeks before the surgery can actually be done. It may also be a good idea for you to bring with your eyeglasses so that your doctor can be able to review them and also take a look at your prescription.
On the day that you are going to undergo the Zed surgery, it is advisable that you only eat a small meal before you go to see your doctor. Also, make sure that you take with you all the prescribed medications that you have. Also, do not wear any kind of makeup and also ensure that you do not have any heavy or bulky accessories on your hair that will make your head feel heavy which will, in turn, affect the positioning of your head. In case you are not feeding in the right way, you should call the clinic and let your doctor know. He or she is then going to decide whether or not the surgery will take place or it is going to be postponed.
When you go into surgery, an instrument known as a microkeratome is going to be used to cut a thin flap on your cornea. After this, the cornea is then going to be peeled back so that the tissue that is under is going to be reshaped into place. Once, the tissue has been reshaped, the cornea flap is going to be put back in its place.
