Out of Town Patients

BoydVision proudly serves clients from Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam, Surrey, and Alberta, as well as clients from Washington State.

If you are coming from out-of-town for your laser eye surgery you won’t have to stay long (possibly as short as one overnight stay). The minimum requirement for LASIK is a one day post-op visit – to be done at BoydVision Centre. The remaining visits can be done with an optometrist in your area. We will help you in arranging your appointments, or finding an optometrist in your area, if you don’t already have one.

If you are coming from out-of-town for cataract or refractive lens implant then you will have to stay a few days or make two shorter trips.  We will need to do some tests to determine which lens to use and need to order this lens to arrive prior to your surgery date.  You will be required to complete some lab tests, ECG and pre-op form prior to surgery and this can even be done prior to your first visit to our office.
