Most people with vision correction issues want to know more about LASIK and whether it is right for them. Here is a brief description of the procedure:
A flap is surgically cut in the cornea and gently folded back. An Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea into a flatter shape (this is much like a contact lens corrects vision by forming a new shape on the cornea). The flap is then put back in place, acting like a natural bandage. The healing process is quick and the discomfort level is quite low.
People will often say that they did not feel anything, and could see well the very first day. Most people have improved vision in 24-48 hours. As with any surgical procedure, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery, often continues to improve for several weeks, even months.
LASIK is not for everyone. Everyone’s eyes are different. Even though you may have had a friend who has had LASIK, it may not be the best course of treatment for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, we will be happy to guide you in picking the right surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you.
After the procedure, we take great care to monitor your eyes and adjust your medication for the best possible results.
Our Davis Highway office provides LASIK surgery on site, as well as pre and post-operative care. Additionally, we have working arrangements established with other specialized eye care doctors to manage such things are retinal detachments, retinal tears and hemorrhages.
