Recovery Time with Lasik Laser Eye Surgery is Minimal

Feb 25, 2008
Each eye is complex and unique and has its own shape. Small imperfections in the eye scatters light waves which cause vision impairment. The procedure is done by a qualified and skilled surgeon.

Lasik laser refractive surgery has become an extremely effective treatment in eye correction. The surgery is done as an outpatient procedure and takes about five minutes per eye. The results are dramatic. It is a refractive surgery to correct errors and reshapes the cornea of the eye. It is an effective treatment and enhances the ability to focus. Lasik eye surgery is the most common type of laser vision correction. The procedure is done by a qualified and skilled surgeon. The recovery is minimal and most patients are able to see without vision correction the next day.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 45% of adults over 50 have never had a dilated eye exam. 1 out of every 3 adults over 40 has a vision problem. A growing problem is the lack of concern to seek out preventative eye care. With that serious problems with the eyes can go undetected and cause permanent damage. Some threatening eye problems include: cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and presbyopia.

Lasik surgery is refractive surgery to correct vision and eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses. An initial baseline eye examination is needed with your eye doctor to see if you are a good candidate for Lasik eye surgery. If you wear contact lenses you should stop wearing them for several weeks before Lasik eye surgery since contacts change the shape of the cornea.

Lasik laser eye surgery correct most patient's common vision problems as with Myopia or nearsightedness; Hyperopia or farsightedness and Astigmatism or distorted vision.

The total procedure takes less than 30 minutes. The laser system includes a large machine with a microscope and an attached computer screen. The laser is used to remove corneal tissue based on measurements taken at your initial evaluation. After the procedure your vision may be hazy or blurry.

This will improve considerably within the first few days. Plan on taking a few days from work until symptoms are gone. A follow up visit is scheduled within the first 24 to 48 hours after surgery to test your vision and examine your eye and regular scheduled interval check ups for at least six months.
