LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK Surgery

More than two mil­lion peo­ple have had LASIK, with the high­est sat­is­fac­tion rate of any elec­tive pro­ce­dure. Improved tech­nol­o­gy now means bet­ter results and few­er side-effects. Ath­letes such as Tiger Woods, Gregg Mad­dux, and Tiki Bar­ber have endorsed LASIK surgery, and so did count­less oth­er celebri­ties such as Eric Clap­ton and Cindy Craw­ford.

What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

Thanks to new research and tech­nol­o­gy, LASIK eye surgery has become an effi­cient and safe alter­na­tive to wear­ing glass­es or con­tact lens­es. It is a safe sur­gi­cal method to cor­rect a vari­ety of vision prob­lems very eas­i­ly.

Here’s a quick overview that will put any doubts you may have about LASIK surgery to rest.

Does LASIK hurt? — Your eyes will be numb through­out the surgery from drops; this will keep them com­fort­able dur­ing the short dura­tion of the LASIK pro­ce­dure.

Can I go blind from LASIK? — No one has ever gone blind from LASIK eye surgery. LASIK cor­rects the shape of the cornea; a mis­shaped cornea caus­es the vision issues.

Can mis­takes be cor­rect­ed? — Over 95% patients are sat­is­fied with the results of LASIK surgery. In the rare event that dis­sat­is­fac­tion does occur, there are sev­er­al options for treat­ment.

Does LASIK cor­rect far­sight­ed­ness?LASIK can cor­rect all refrac­tive errors, which include near­sight­ed, far­sight­ed and astig­ma­tism.
