Prior to Lasik Eye Surgery, consult with your current medication
Even though LASIK eye surgery is a safe procedure, it is normal to get the jitters prior to the surgery. Knowing how to prepare yourself in the weeks and days leading up to the surgery can make you feel at ease and increase your chances of a more favourable outcome.
Most patients can take their prescribed medications as usual though there are some exceptions. Some medications may need to be stopped altogether before surgery like medications if indicated by your family doctor like Imitrex (Sumatriptan), which can affect the healing process of the cornea post-surgery acetate, which can lead to eye dryness. Moreover, if you are taking medication that makes you feel drowsy or sleepy, your physician may advise you to skip your dose on the day of surgery.
Certain drugs can also aggravate the risks associated with LASIK eye surgery Mumbai so they need to be completely out of your system before you undergo treatment. If not, it could lead to complications like dry eyes or corneal oedema.
To help avoid these complications, it is important to inform your eye surgeon of all the different medicines that you are taking, like prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, supplements and recreational drugs. Moreover, you also need to inform if you have any autoimmune disease, diabetes, dry eyes, uveitis, a traumatic eye injury, corneal scarring, cataracts, glaucoma, retinal disease or have undergone eye surgery before, as these health issues may make you a poor candidate for a LASIK procedure. If you feel you need medication to calm your nerves before LASIK eye surgery in Mumbai, talk about it with your surgeon before your LASIK surgery.
