YOUR LASIK EVALUATION WITH SHROFF EYE
PREREQUISITES FOR YOUR LASIK EVALUATION
Prior to your visit to us what we need from you is:
- No contact lens wear for 3- 5 days [soft CL] and 3 weeks if semi soft.
- Since we dilate the pupils, we request you to have someone accompanying you to drive you back as you will not be able to self-drive. This is because the vision is slightly fuzzy for an hour or two. Hence avoid going back to office work after the evaluation is completed.
