Lasik: Will You Have 20/20 Vision?

Feb 6, 2008
With Laser Lasik, Houston Texas residents have to be sure to do their homework, primarily because they need to have all the facts. So many people expect to have perfect 20/20 vision after their lasik surgery in Houston Texas, and are disappointed when they receive less than stellar results.

The trouble is, even with the best surgeon, results can be guaranteed only so far, and as with all operations, there is a modicum of risk involved. Just because it is elective and considered cosmetic doesn't mean that the outcome is assured. Surgery is largely successful however, with less than 1% of people experiencing severe problems after their operation.

Many problems are avoided by simply choosing a Lasik surgeon who has been certified via the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance (CRSQA), as they require members to have a low occurrence of post operative complications like halos, glare (no more than 3%) and life threatening complications of less than .05%.

Because of these standards, surgery is very safe and effective. If seeking Laser Lasik, Houston citizens would do well to research the surgeon's background prior to their surgery. The more informed a patient is, the greater their chances of having postoperative success.

The patient should also be aware of his or her own eye health. Many surgeons won't consider working on patients who has certain types of eye irregularities or diseases because of the potential risk. Even with the best conditions possible, surgery can be a mixed bag of results.

However, we can say with great certainty that most Laser Lasik clients will experience a drastic improvement in their vision, even if they suffer a few after effects a lot longer than most. Many with troublesome symptoms can receive enhancements, which may be included as part of the package when you sign up for surgery.

Will you have twenty/twenty vision after the surgery? More than likely, you can at least achieve 20/20 or a reasonably close facsimile. Today, there is really no other way to dramatically improve your eyesight. In the end, it all depends on who you choose, and how educated you are as to the process. A quality surgery can help you put away the glasses for good, and isn't that well worth the risks?

While there are many individuals who need but are reluctant to have laser surgery, knowing there is one center in the nation where corrective surgery can be performed and customized to suit each patient is a rarity. Moreover, patients who have undergone surgery have attested to the extraordinary results of this type of surgery and are elated they are no longer in need of wearing glasses or contact lenses any longer.

Refractive surgery is permanent and will affect your vision the rest of your life. There are no guarantees with any surgery that includes laser eye surgery or refractive eye surgeries. Ask your ophthalmologist all the questions you need to ask, read all the information that you need to read to become educated on this procedure. Make sure that your ophthalmologist is qualified and has a good reputation. Make sure he or she is available for you after surgery of complications should occur.
