In brief: Yes

If your eyes are dilated during the exam, the effect of the drops may last several hours, causing the pupils to be large and near vision to be blurred.
Your distance vision with your contacts or glasses generally doesn't change but you may be light sensitive. Always use caution if driving.

In brief: Depends

After your lasik evaluation, you will likely be dilated.
Your up close vision will be very blurry so depending on your job you may have to take the day off to allow the dilation to wear off.

In brief: Yes

You may be a little sensitive to light and reading may be difficult after the consultation secondary to dilation, but otherwise you should be fine.

In brief: Yes

All of our potential lasik candidates receive a dilated eye exam.
Your vision may be blurred at near but otherwise you should be ok for work.
