Laser Clear Vision With LASIK Eye Surgery
What is LASIK eye surgery?
Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery is a common procedure to reshape your cornea, or the outer layer on the front of your eye. Correcting the shape of your cornea can fix blurry vision caused by nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Patients have also used this procedure to replace wearing glasses or contact lenses.
What happens when you have LASIK eye surgery?
After your eye doctor puts numbing drops in your eye, they’ll use a device to hold open your eyelids. Next, they’ll take ultra-precise measurements of your eye using iDesign, the most advanced LASIK measurement technology on the market. Then they’ll cut a corneal flap, which is thinner than a sheet of paper.
With this flap removed, they’ll use a laser to remove corneal tissue that either flattens or steepens the cornea’s shape. After this, your doctor lays the flap back over your cornea. Altogether, this procedure takes only 15 to 30 minutes, and you can go home right afterward for a quick recovery!
What does LASIK eye surgery recovery involve?
Following the procedure, your eyes may be red, itchy, or watery. This can be uncomfortable for most patients, but it’s important not to rub your eyes! These sensations will go away over the next couple of days as your vision improves and as you get closer to your follow-up appointment.
Your doctor might also prescribe an anti-inflammatory or antibiotic medication. Whether these are eye drops or in oral form, take them only as prescribed for your best possible recovery and outcome.
