On the day of the initial consult, you should plan on being in our office for about an hour. During this time, we will perform a series of measurements including: a diagnostic analysis of the front surface of the eye, measuring corneal thickness, and checking vision. Dr. Kraff will examine your eyes and look at the measurements to let you know if you are a candidate for refractive surgery. One of our refractive counselors will go over the qualifying procedure in detail and answer any questions you might have regarding the surgery. The refractive counselor will discuss scheduling and finance options.
Should you decide to move forward with surgery, you will need to come back for a pre-operative exam. At the pre-op exam, you will have in-depth measurements performed to help Dr. Kraff calculate your exact refractive treatment. The refractive counselor will let contact lens wearers know the specified period to be out of lenses prior to the pre-op and surgery.
If you would like to know more about refractive surgery and if you are a candidate please schedule a complimentary consultation by calling (312) 444-1111 or use our Vision Correction Consultation form.
