Frequently Asked Questions
What is LASIK surgery, and how does it work?
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) surgery is the most popular vision correction procedure that utilizes specialized lasers to reshape the cornea. By reshaping the cornea, LASIK surgery can correct refractive errors, resulting in improved vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
What are the potential risks and complications associated with LASIK?
LASIK has a wonderfully high success rate, but you should be aware of potential risks. These can include dry eyes, nighttime glare, halos around lights, and fluctuating vision; for most, these are temporary and resolve with time. It’s crucial to have a thorough consultation with your surgeon to discuss the potential risks and complications and understand how they may apply to your specific case.

How long does the LASIK procedure take, and is it painful?
The LASIK procedure is relatively quick and typically takes less than 15 minutes for both eyes. The surgeon will ensure your comfort by administering numbing eye drops, minimizing any potential discomfort. While you may feel some pressure or mild sensations during the procedure, it is not painful.
Will I need to take time off work or limit my activities after the surgery?
Most patients can resume their normal activities, including work, within a day or two after LASIK. However, it is recommended to take a couple of days off to allow your eyes to rest and heal properly. It’s important to avoid contact sports, as well as swimming, and dusty environments for a few weeks post-surgery.
Are the results of LASIK permanent, or will I need additional procedures in the future?
The results of LASIK are typically permanent. The procedure aims to correct your vision by reshaping the cornea, providing lasting improvements. However, it’s important to note that certain age-related changes, such as presbyopia, may occur over time and could require additional treatments or the use of reading glasses.
What are the costs associated with LASIK surgery, and do you offer financing options?
The cost of LASIK surgery depends on various factors, such as the specific procedure, the technology used, and the experience of the surgeon. It’s recommended to contact our LASIK center directly to inquire about the cost and potential financing options available to make the procedure more accessible for you.
What is the recovery process like, and are there any specific precautions I should take?
The recovery process after LASIK surgery typically involves mild discomfort for 2- 4 hours, dryness, and temporary fluctuations in vision. Your surgeon will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including the use of prescribed eye drops for 5 days, avoiding rubbing your eyes, wearing protective eyewear, and attending follow-up appointments. It’s crucial to follow these guidelines for a smooth recovery.
Are there any restrictions on who can undergo LASIK surgery, such as age or specific eye conditions?
While LASIK surgery is suitable for most people, there are certain criteria that must be met. Generally, patients must be at least 18 years old, have a stable vision prescription, and have healthy corneas. Some eye conditions, such as severe dry eye or thin corneas, may impact candidacy. An evaluation by our LASIK surgeon will determine if you meet the requirements.
