What You Need To Know About LASIK Eye Surgery

Saturday, July 15th, 2023, 12:00 pm

For many years, the available choices for improving eyesight were glasses and then eye contact. With the advancements of technology came a new option for LASIK eye surgery. A LASIK procedure can help significantly improve eyesight without the use of contact lenses and glasses. While this procedure may not be suitable for everyone, here is what you need to know about LASIK eye surgery.

What Is LASIK?

LASIK is a vision correction procedure that gets rid of the need for other vision-assisting devices such as glasses or contact lenses. The goal of a LASIK procedure is to help you have better vision without the use of either of these devices. This procedure can also help correct many vision problems such as near or far-sightedness.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Almost 80 percent of the United States adult population is a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. The following reasons are why you may be a good candidate for this procedure:

  • Have good general health
  • Above the age of 18
  • Have common & slight vision issues
  • Live an active lifestyle

These reasons could make you a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery. Having strong tear production can also make you a good candidate. Scheduling a consultation with one of our eye professionals can help you gather more information on what can make you a potential candidate for this procedure.

When Will I See Improvement in My Vision?

You can expect to see vision improvement immediately after surgery. You’ll be able to notice your issues have been corrected. While your vision may be slightly blurry, it will wear off slowly as the next few days progress. It is recommended that after you’ve arrived home after your procedure, close your eyes for a few hours to let them rest and re-adjust.
