Think of the LASIK consultation as “LASIK Open House.” This appointment is a time to learn all one can about the LASIK procedure, how it can help, and whether or not it is the best form of vision enhancement option at this time. A patient will have the opportunity to ask Denver LASIK surgeon Dr. Stuart Lewis any questions concerning LASIK and their eye health, and to discuss the procedure in detail.
To prepare for an exam, it is advantageous to bring one’s current glasses or contact lenses for evaluation. A patient may want to print out our online patient forms beforehand to save time. An individual will also undergo a series of eye evaluation tests to help determine if this is the ideal treatment. A person should be prepared to give a full medical and family history during his or her LASIK consultation as well. Eyes will be dilated during the exam, so make sure that sunglasses are readily available for the drive home. To qualify for LASIK, a candidate will need to have a stable prescription, to be over the age of 18, and to have healthy corneas.

Extensive testing is performed to determine whether someone is a good candidate for LASIK including:
- Dilated eye exam
- Pupillometer to measure pupil size
After the completion of one’s testing and thorough assessment of one’s vision and lifestyle needs, Dr. Lewis presents his patients with recommendations for their best vision correction option. If a candidate feels they are ready to move forward with LASIK, we will schedule a pre-operative appointment and a procedure time. If a patient still has questions or needs to think it over, we encourage everyone to take their time and carefully consider all the details and LASIK alternatives. At any time, patients can feel free to call our office with questions or schedule an additional session to discuss his or her concerns.
