Surgical Procedure

At the WK Refractive Surgery Center, we have provided for you and your family a very comfortable waiting area. We have available to you and your family refreshments, television and WiFi. We also have a room dedicated as our “family viewing room” where only your family can observe your surgery and be right there with you to share in this experience. Both you and your family should be prepared to be with us on the day of your procedure for approximately 2-3 hours.

You will be given Valium before taking you into the laser suite. The purpose of the Valium is to help relax you; it will not put you to sleep. Once in the laser suite, we will clean around your eyes with medicated soap. Throughout the procedure, we will put drops in your eyes to numb them, there is no pain.

Once we have finished the procedure and you sit up, you will immediately appreciate the improvement in your vision. Most patients describe their vision, at that moment, to be similar to opening their eyes under water with a slight fuzzy/haziness to everything. Our patients begin to describe what they can now see in the room, or how they can read the clock on the wall. When patients see their family members, they smile as they realize they are seeing without glasses or contact lenses. For the staff, it is a moment that we never tire observing.

After your procedure, your doctor will meet with you and your family to answer any final questions. We then encourage you to go home and sleep for the first 3 – 5 hours following surgery. Once you wake up from your nap, the rest of your day, you will enjoy your renewed vision.

Your follow up visits are 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year.
