Corrective Eye Surgery
How does LASIK Eye Surgery work?
A flap is surgically cut in the cornea and gently folded back. An Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea into a different 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 often say that they did not feel anything during the procedure and could see well the very first day. Most people have improved vision within 24-48 hours, but 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 some weeks, even months.
Can I have LASIK Eye Surgery?
LASIK is not for everyone. People's eyes are different so 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.
