ConsultationsAre you a Candidate?
Consultations at London Eye Centre are approximately one hour in length. Prior to consultation, whenever possible, London Eye Centre requests patients to wear glasses instead of contact lenses to prepare for the initial measurements.
In the first part of the consultation, you will be given a thorough eye exam. Your eyes will first be mapped using the latest technology that provide customized measurements of your eyes: Pentacam and WaveScan. One of London Eye Centre’s experienced technologists will then perform a complete eye exam consisting of familiar eye tests and additional measurements unique to planning a laser procedure. In some cases, you may be given eye drops that dilate your pupils. Once your eyes have been thoroughly assessed, the technologists will determine your eligibility, discuss which procedures (‘No Touch’ PRK or Intralase SBK) are suitable for you, counsel you on healing and recovery, and explain the outcome of the procedure. If you are over the age of 40, the technologist will also educate you on the option of monovision (sometime referred to as blended vision) to address natural aging.
In the second part of the consultation, one of our knowledgeable education counsellors will walk you step-by-step through the process: how to prepare for your procedure, the day of treatment, post-operative care and expectations. Finally, scheduling, fees and payment plan options will be discussed.
Consultation measurements are valid for 6 months from exam date. Out-of-town patients can have a consultation performed with a local optometrist in their home town. London Eye Centre reimburses up to $80 in the form of a surgical fee reduction to cover the cost of out-of-town consultations. London Eye Centre is not treating USA residents at this time.
Consultation hours at our New Westminster location is Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. We are also available on Tuesday evenings (until 6:30pm) and Saturday mornings. The consultation hours at our North Vancouver location is Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
