Laser Vision Correction
people with vision correction issues want to know more about LASIK and
whether it is right for them. The following is a brief description of the
A flap is surgically cut in the cornea and gently folded back. An Excimer
Laser is used to reshape the cornea into a flatter shape (this is much
like a contact lens corrects vision by forming a new shape on the cornea).
The flap is then put back in place, acting like a natural bandage. The
healing process is quick and the discomfort level is minimal. People will
often say that they did not feel anything, and could see well the very
first day. Most people have improved vision within 24 hours. Yet, it must
be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Vision, although
greatly improved immediately after surgery, often continues to improve for
some weeks and even months.
LASIK is not for everyone.
People's eyes are different so even though you may have had a friend who
has had LASIK, it may not be the best course of treatment for you. If you
are interested in laser vision correction, we will be happy to guide you
in picking the right surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you.
