What Is Laser Eye Surgery?
Laser eye surgery is a vision correction procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors such as hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism.
Laser vision correction is an excellent option for patients looking to reduce their reliance on glasses or contact lenses.
During your laser eye surgery consultation, our team will conduct a thorough evaluation that may include:
- A review of your refractive surgery options
- Reviewing your eye history and refractive stability
- Eye dominance testing
- A full medical evaluation of the cornea and eye
Our team of experienced doctors will walk you through the laser vision correction process and determine if the procedure is a good fit for you.
Exploring LASIK Vision Correction
LASIK eye surgery is the most well known and commonly performed laser refractive surgery to correct vision. As a part of your consultation, we will explore what you can expect during LASIK eye surgery.
During the LASIK Procedure
LASIK vision correction is a quick procedure that can usually be completed in 30 minutes or less. Your surgeon will first use numbing drops in your eyes before the procedure begins.
Your surgeon will use a precision laser to create a small flap away from the front of the eye to access the part of the cornea that requires reshaping. Once the reshaping process has been completed, your surgeon will carefully place the flap back into place.
LASIK Healing Process
Following your surgery, your eyes may feel itchy and watery, or you may feel a burning sensation. LASIK eye surgery usually heals without needing stitches, and pain following surgery is rare.
You may be given over-the-counter pain medication, or eye drops to manage discomfort to manage any pain. It takes around 2 to 3 months for your eyes to heal completely and your vision to stabilize following surgery.
Our team will also schedule follow-up appointments to ensure the healing process is progressing without issue.
LASIK Vision Correction Results
LASIK can allow you to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. LASIK surgery has a high success rate, and more than 8 out of 10 people who have had the surgery no longer need their glasses or contact lenses for most activities.
Your final results will depend on the severity of your vision conditions and the specific type of refractive errors you have.
Recovery time can vary, and maintaining a consistent appointment schedule with our team can help monitor your results and ensure your eyes are healing effectively.
