LASIK FAQs

What is LASIK?

LASIK surgery is a procedure that allows patients to see clearly without wearing glasses or contacts. A computer-controlled excimer laser gently and painlessly corrects vision by reshaping the cornea. LASIK is a popular and effective method for treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

How Safe is LASIK?

Although complications are possible with any surgical procedure, they are very rare with LASIK and happen in less than one percent of all cases. LASIK is not painful thanks to anesthetic drops that numb the eye before the surgery. Most patients report feeling nothing more than some gentle pressure during the procedure.

Does LASIK Give You 20/20 Vision?

Although there is no guarantee that you’ll come out of LASIK with perfect eyesight, you’ll notice a marked improvement in your vision. The vast majority of those who receive the surgery can efficiently perform everyday activities like driving, reading, watching television, and playing sports without glasses or contacts.

How Long Do the Effects of LASIK Last?

LASIK surgery is reasonably permanent as far as correcting distance vision issues go. However, your vision will continue to change as you age regardless of if you have undergone LASIK surgery or not. For instance, you will likely still eventually need reading glasses, which is a normal part of the aging process.

How Long after LASIK Can Someone Resume Everyday Activities?

After LASIK, our eye specialist will recommend avoiding activities such as swimming or engagement in contact sports for a few weeks to give your eyes time to heal. Most LASIK patients can see clearly after 24-48 hours and can get back to life as usual almost immediately afterward. You may even experience additional vision improvement for several months after your procedure.
