Ans. If planned well, you need not more than 3-4 days in our city. We usually advise you to reach at least a day before the procedure so that the evaluation and examination can be done. This examination procedure takes about an hour in our office and the only important instruction you need to follow is to be off soft contact lenses for about 3-4 days before the examination and off hard or semi soft contact lenses for about 3 weeks.
The LASIK procedure is usually planned on fixed days, once or twice a week and you need to inform us a week before for scheduling the date. The procedure time is not more that 8 minutes per eye and you can return to your hotel immediately after our nurse has explained the medication eye drop schedule. We need to definitely see you for a post LASIK check up the next day and once again only if still in Mumbai. Those who live close to Mumbai (like Pune, Nashik etc) usually go home the next day after their examination and then seen again after 7 to 10 days.
