Most patients know that the ultimate goal of LASIK surgery is 20/20 (or better!) vision. But, if you’re considering LASIK, it’s important to know what happens leading up to the optimal vision correction.
One of the best things about LASIK eye surgery is the rapid recovery time. Typically, it takes just a few days to fully recover, and most patients find that their vision noticeably improves just a few hours after they get home from their LASIK surgery.
LASIK eye surgery can correct refractive vision errors, including astigmatism, in the right candidate. Most of our patients with mild to moderate astigmatism are able to achieve 20/20 vision or higher with LASIK surgery.
LASIK vision correction surgery is extremely effective and popular, but many people are understandably concerned about side effects. Your vision is an important sense, and no one wants to lose it due to side effects of elective eye surgery.
LASIK laser eye surgery is a remarkably fast, efficient, and precise procedure. Typically, while your entire appointment may take an hour, the procedure itself is only 5 to 10 minutes per eye. It is not painful, as numbing drops are applied beforehand.
Although LASIK laser vision correction is the most commonly known procedure to fix your eyesight, there are other procedures available if you are not a LASIK candidate for any reason. Among these are PRK and Visian ICL.
