If you suffer from less than perfect vision, you may have struggled with glasses or contacts for years. Some people have worn glasses since grade school or even earlier. As an adult, you are likely thinking that there has to be a better solution for your vision problems. Laser eye surgeries have revolutionized the way society has looked at vision correction. The most popular option for laser eye surgery is LASIK. With the growing demand for this surgery, it is likely that there is a laser eye center near you that can perform the LASIK procedure.
LASIK works by using fast, precise pulses of laser light to create microscopic bubbles in eye. The depth of the bubbles is determined by doctor. The light passes through cornea and a flap is created from the microscopic bubbles. Once this flap is formed, the doctor lifts it up to reshape the cornea, which corrects refractive error. The flap is then replaced into the proper position on the eye. It adheres within a few minutes on its own. While this procedure sounds scary, it only takes about six seconds to create the flap. You will be sedated throughout the procedure, and should feel minimal pain when you wake up.
After the surgery, you can expect dramatically improved vision. 95% of patients experience vision of 20/40 or better, with 85% experiencing perfect 20/20 vision. You can also expect long lasting results. It takes about 3 months to heal and have your vision perfect after the surgery, but results are expected to be permanent, except changes due to aging or illness. The recovery time is also fairly short. You should rest the day of the procedure, but can drive and work the next day. The best part is, you won’t have to deal with contacts or glasses anymore. You will simply have your perfect vision for the rest of your life without corrective aids.
