How to Qualify for LASIK

You’ll know if you qualify for LASIK eye surgery after a complimentary consultation performed by our LASIK surgeon, Dr. Farooq Ashraf. During the consultation, he will ask you a series of questions and perform the eye tests necessary to determine whether or not you’re a candidate for LASIK. You’re welcome to take our quick online Vision Test that will be a good indicator of whether or not you should schedule a consultation for LASIK.

If you do qualify for LASIK, here’s what you can expect from the procedure:

  • Plan to arrive to our Johns Creek office location where the surgery will be performed (you should have a relative or someone you know and trust drive you to your LASIK surgery and back to your home when it’s over).
  • Before the LASIK surgery, our staff and surgeon will explain everything in detail so you feel confident about what to expect before, during and after the surgery. You can also expect our staff to numb your eyes with eye drops just prior to the surgery. You will be AWAKE for the surgery.
  • For most patients, the entire process of LASIK takes 10 minutes; the actual laser treatment time takes just 15 to 90 seconds, depending on the degree of correction required. Total time at the center on the day of the procedure will be about an hour.

You can read our LASIK FAQs to answer any questions you may have prior to scheduling your appointment.
