At BoydVision, we offer free LASIK surgery consultations for those considering laser eye surgery. All consultation will be with our eye surgeon, Dr. Boyd. This is so that each person can be provided with all the information they need to decide whether to move ahead with LASIK surgery, or another type of procedure.

If you have been thinking about booking your free consultation, here’s what you can expect during your first meeting with us.

Are You A Candidate For LASIK Surgery?

Your consultation is a time to ask any questions you may have, but is also when Dr. Boyd can perform a series of examinations to determine whether you are a candidate for the procedure. The following tests and exams are performed to get a good understanding of your vision:

  • wavefront analysis with the Zeiss WASCA Aberrometer
  • corneal surface analysis with the Humphrey Zeiss ATLAS Topographer
  • 3D imaging of the cornea with the Oculus Pentacam
  • complete refractive testing
  • examination of ocular health with dilation of the pupils.

If you are a candidate for LASIK, Dr. Boyd will talk you through the surgery and alert you of the risks so that you are fully informed when making your decision on whether to proceed.

Alternatively, if Dr. Boyd does not recommend LASIK for your eyes, you may be a prime candidate for PRK surgery. Dr. Boyd can also talk you through the differences between PRK and LASIK so that you if you are a candidate for both procedures, you can pick the surgery you prefer the sound of.

The Cost

We only provide Custom LASIK surgery as we believe each person should be treated for their individual needs. Our Custom LASIK procedure is the most affordable. Dr. Boyd can give you an accurate cost for the procedure that will suit you, at the end of your consultation.
