    Frequently Asked Questions: YAG or ARGON Laser Patients


    1. What do I need to bring with me for my laser procedure?

    Insurance cards, photo IDs, and a designated driver is recommended. You may want to make inquiries to your insurance company about their coverage for our facility fees since these are due on the day of services.

    2. Will I have to be dilated?

    You can expect to receive some eye drops including dilating drops in the treated eye.

    3. How long will the procedure take?

    Waiting periods vary but may range from 15 minutes to 1 hour.

    4. Do I need a driver to accompany me?

    A designated driver is recommended. Due to the small size of our waiting area, each patient is encouraged to limit accompanying family members to one person.

    5. Can I eat or drink before my laser treatment?

    There are no restrictions on eating or drinking before or after your laser treatment.
