Benefits of LASIK
For most patients who choose LASIK, the surgery is a transformative experience. The most obvious benefit of LASIK is clear vision, but the advantages of LASIK surgery don’t end there.
LASIK surgery is brief, requiring just minutes to treat each eye. Most patients experience clear, improved vision within a day of surgery. Full surgery recovery and optimal vision may take a few months.
Say Goodbye to Eye Wear
Many patients achieve 20/20 vision or greater following surgery and will not require corrective eyewear. It is important to note, however, that LASIK does not guarantee perfect vision. Depending on your individual condition, you may still need glasses or contacts for some situations following LASIK surgery.
LASIK is a Permanent Vision Solution
LASIK vision correction is intended a permanent solution for hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), or astigmatism; however, reading glasses or further correction may be needed after the age of 40 to correct presbyopia (inability to focus on near objects).
Versatile Vision Correction
LASIK can correct three of the most common vision problems: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. In addition to restoring your vision, LASIK can help restore the self-confidence that can be lost with poor vision. Clear vision allows you to feel at ease in a wide range of activities and social situations.
