What is LASIK?

LASIK is a vision correction surgery that treats myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and abnormal eye curvature (astigmatism). 

LASIK corrects your vision and reduces or eliminates the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK could be the answer if you’re tired of keeping up with and maintaining glasses or contacts or want to live an active life without wearing glasses.

How does LASIK work?

Before your LASIK surgery, you receive numbing eye drops. While you focus on a bright light, your surgeon uses a laser to create a tiny flap in the front of your eye. There are no blades used in LASIK surgery.

Your surgeon folds the flap back, reaching the cornea. They use a laser to remove tissue in tiny increments. 

After corneal reshaping, your surgeon replaces the flap. It generally heals without stitches. The procedure takes just 10 minutes, and you spend about 90 minutes in the office total. 

What happens in a LASIK consultation?

A LASIK consultation is an opportunity to learn whether the procedure is a good fit for you. The team performs a comprehensive eye exam to evaluate eye health and vision, with a particular focus on issues that could influence your LASIK results. Tests you’ll have include:

  • Dry eyes (LipiScan®)
  • Visual acuity 
  • Refractive error
  • Pupil light response
  • Ocular pressure (glaucoma test)
  • Corneal thickness  
  • Corneal topography (mapping)

The team invites you to ask questions and voice any concerns you may have during your LASIK consultation. Patients get the best results when they’re well-informed and feel confident about their procedure, and the team makes that happen.

Do I still need eye exams after LASIK?

Yes, you still need annual eye exams after LASIK. While LASIK surgery can free you from glasses or contacts, you still need to monitor your eye health regularly. 

Eye exams screen for cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eyes, and other issues that could damage your eyes and, eventually, cause vision loss. Diagnosing eye problems early allows for immediate treatment that preserves your eyesight. 

Precision Eye Institute uses the most technologically advanced equipment and surgical methods for all types of vision correction surgeries, including LASIK, cataract surgery, and refractive lens exchange. To learn more, call the office or use the online scheduling link now.
