Ilex Eye: Eye Doctors in Waterloo

How do I get started, and where do things end?

Things begin with a comprehensive examination, with some additional procedures to assess prescription and corneal thickness. If your optometrist feels you are a candidate for laser surgery, the next step is a consultation with the surgeon, who will repeat some tests, and perform specialized corneal mapping and aberration assessments. If there are no contraindications, your surgery and post-operative appointments with your optometrist will be scheduled. Our current fees include your post-op care for both eyes for one year, and are $705 for LASIK and $795 for PRK. Following that, it is recommended that you continue annual assessments for at least a few years; your optometrist will outline an examination schedule based upon your individual situation. Remember, we work for you, not the laser surgeon, and our role is to advocate in your best interests.
