LASIK is an eye surgery that can help patients correct their vision problems. When you visit our ophthalmologist at Vision 3C Specialists, we can perform an eye test to diagnose any eye conditions and determine what could be causing any vision issues. We will also will recommend a treatment plan, which may include LASIK surgery. This may ultimately reduce the need for frequent appointments or the use of glasses or contacts. Learn more about LASIK below!
What is LASIK?
LASI is a laser eye surgery that is used to correct vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
How is LASIK performed?
During the procedure, a laser is used to reshape the cornea, which is the transparent front part of the eye. LASIK helps improve how light enters the eye and can lead to clearer vision.
Is LASIK safe?
Yes, LASIK is generally safe and effective. Discussing any risks with our doctor and deciding whether LASIK is right for you is essential.
What are the risks of LASIK?
When considering LASIK, being aware of the potential risks is crucial. While most patients experience successful outcomes, some risks are still involved. These can include dry eyes, night vision problems, glare or halos around lights, and the possibility of needing additional surgeries. It is important to thoroughly speak with our ophthalmologist before deciding to have LASIK surgery.
How long does it take to recover from LASIK?
Most people can return to their normal routine anywhere between a few days to a week after the procedure. However, it can take several weeks for your vision to fully stabilize.
What are the potential side effects of LASIK?
Some people may experience dry eyes, glare, halos, or double vision after the surgery. These side effects are usually temporary and easily managed with medication. More severe complications, such as infection or vision loss, may occur in rare cases.
Who can benefit from LASIK?
LASIK eye surgery can be an excellent option for people who want to improve their vision and reduce the use of glasses or contact lenses. Generally, those with good eye health and a stable prescription of at least a year are good candidates for the procedure. However, people with certain medical conditions or eye problems may not qualify for LASIK, so you must consult our eye doctor to determine if LASIK is right for you.
