- Schedule an appointment
Call Seibel Vision Surgery at (310) 444-1134 to request
a convenient time for your FREE LASIK screening exam.
- Establish your candidacy
This is your initial free screening
necessary to determine whether or not you are eligible for LASIK. It will last
about 45 minutes to an hour and is not a sales pitch. Your screening procedure
includes a refractive exam, corneal
coverage of benefits and risks,
and a one-on-one discussion with Dr. Seibel.
- Your pre-operative eye exam
During this visit, your comprehensive LASIK eye exam will be conducted to detect
possible underlying medical concerns. This allows Dr. Seibel to develop a precise
profile of your eye measurements and further validate your LASIK candidacy. The
nominal charge for these high technology tests is deducted from the LASIK fee.
- Schedule your LASIK procedure
Dr. Seibel typically performs LASIK surgeries on Wednesday and Friday afternoons
at our ambulatory surgery facilities,
located at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the Mark Goodson Building. This
appointment will be scheduled at the time
of your comprehensive eye exam.
- Prepare for your procedure
LASIK eye surgery is an ambulatory procedure, which means that you walk into
our surgery facility, have your procedure and then walk out again. Be sure to
carefully follow all preparation instructions.
Have your LASIK procedure and be home within hours. Although the actual LASIK
procedure takes only minutes per eye, with the essential preparation and recovery
time, plan on being here for a couple of hours.
- Return home for recovery
Once your procedure is complete you will need someone to drive you home to rest.
Additional drops will be placed in your eyes and medication may be given to you
to use over the next few days.
A complete instruction packet will be provided for you. Be sure to follow the
- Return for your post-op exams
After resting at home, you will arrive the next day for your follow-up appointment.
Dr. Seibel will personally examine your eyes and answer any questions you may
As your vision will be slightly changing over the next few months, Dr. Seibel
will meet with you at specific intervals to examine your eyes and keep track
of your progress.
You may also schedule your follow-up exams with your eye care professional, if
you prefer. We are happy to work with other practices. Please keep in mind that
you are responsible for their fees.
We experience an overwhelming success rate with our patients in only one refractive
treatment. Sometimes, however, due to each individual's prescription level and
unique physiology, an additional treatment or enhancement, may be required.
- Enjoy the benefits!
While LASIK does not guarantee perfect vision, it does hold the promise of substantially reducing your dependence on contacts or glasses, and the freedom of pursuing whatever life brings your way.
