The most common type of laser eye surgery is called LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis. During this procedure, cuts are made in the cornea of the eye, flaps of tissue are raised, and reshaping is carried out to correct the vision defect. Laser vision correction surgery is used to correct a variety of vision problems, including short-sighted, long-sighted, or who have astigmatism. However, it’s not appropriate for everyone, so your eye doctor can determine if laser vision correction surgery is suitable for you or your loved one. There are many benefits to laser vision correction compared to traditional eyeglasses or contact lenses!
Is Laser Eye Surgery a Good Idea?
The advantages of LASIK and laser vision correction are endless, but people are still often hesitant because it’s a surgery. In recent years, the cost of the procedure has gone down along with side effects and complications as eye surgeons continue to innovate and become better in the procedure. If you’re interested in laser eye surgery for yourself or a family member, get ready for these benefits:
Proven to fully correct vision in most cases.
Very little pain during and post eye surgery.
Recovery is quick and usually no bandages or stitches are required.
Adjustments can be made in the future to further correct vision.
After procedure is complete, most patients no longer need any corrective eyewear!
