What are the benefits of LASIK?
LASIK is a fantastic surgery. It is:
- Extremely accurate.
- Quick, the total procedure takes about 10 minutes. We use a femtosecond laser to create a thin flap of corneal tissue in just 15 seconds.
- Rapid results: You can see soon after the surgery.
- Speedy recovery: The eye can be a little bit scratchy initially. Still, the visual recovery is fast. Most people can drive the next day after surgery.
- Can treat refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and mixed astigmatism
Many people who have LASIK eye surgery can’t understand why they did not have refractive surgery sooner.
If you want to see if you’re a good candidate to have eye laser surgery and free yourself from the need to wear glasses or contact lenses,take the self-test. It takes a few minutes and will give you a good idea of your suitability and treatment options.
